Eat at the Harp at Old Radnor

Please read the following paragraphs before booking a table with us. 

We are doing our best to minimise the risk of transmission of covid-19 on our premises and ideally we would ask everyone to take a lateral flow test before coming to us and only come if the result is negative.  If you are not prepared to do this we ask that you do not come to us if you or anyone in your party have any symptoms of covid-19, are awaiting a test result, have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive or has symptoms, and/or are required under current Welsh guidance to self isolate.

We are very conscious that the virus is still very much in circulation so we are still maintaining some precautions such as asking customers to sanitise their hands on arrival.  We are not now requiring face masks to be worn but customers are welcome and indeed encouraged to wear them when not seated at their table if they wish.  We are maintaining our strict cleaning and hygiene regimes and operating table service at busy times to encourage customers to remain seated as much as possible.

Like many hospitality businesses we are still finding ourselves short staffed on occasions so it is essential to book your table in advance, we may be unable to serve you if you arrive without a booking.  And please, please let us know if you wish to cancel the booking, a no show is disaster for us and we can often re-book a table even at short notice.

Thank you for reading this and we hope to see you soon!

More about our food

Our philosophy with the food we serve is simple – good, fresh ingredients, locally sourced if possible, freshly cooked to order, presented and served with care.  Because our food is freshly prepared, our menu is not extensive but we offer simple pub food classics such as ham and eggs or steak and chips alongside our chef’s more imaginative modern dishes and of course a traditional roast lunch on Sundays.

Our menu changes every six weeks or so. Please note that dishes may be subject to slight variation depending on the availability of ingredients so please call us first if you wish to ensure that a particular dish will be available on your visit.

We are always happy to discuss requests from customers for particular dishes, set menus or buffet menus for special occasions (when larger gatherings are permitted).

 We do not offer a separate menu for children but can offer small portions of some of our dishes, or divide adult portions between children.

Vegetarian / Dietary Requirements

We are very aware of food allergies and intolerances and our menu indicates which dishes can be made gluten free or dairy free although you must make it clear to the person taking your order if this is required. We try to make it clear if nuts are an ingredient in a dish but again please make it clear to your server if you have a nut allergy. For those with severe allergies please note that we do use nuts in our kitchen so none of our food is prepared in a nut-free environment.

We try to offer an interesting choice of vegetarian dishes and whilst these would not necessarily always also be vegan, we are happy to accommodate vegan and other specific dietary requirements with some advance notice.
