Drink at the Harp at Old Radnor

We are closed until further notice and not currently offering take aways

Please read the following paragraphs before coming to the Harp for a drink.  We are doing our best to keep everyone safe in these difficult times and we trust and expect that our customers will do the same and follow the Welsh coronavirus regulations.  We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone if it comes to our notice that they are acting in breach of the regulations.

We are still of necessity working at reduced capacity.  In addition we are only able to offer table service so we are asking you to book a table if you wish to come for a drink.  Due to space restrictions we will not be able to set aside tables for drinkers at busy times and if you arrive without a table booking we will not be able to serve you if no tables are available (an empty table does not necessarily mean we have space as we are limiting the overall number of people in each area at any one time so the table may have been left vacant deliberately so as not to overcrowd a particular area).

We are very sorry but the regulations do not currently allow us to take bookings from anyone who does not live in Wales.  Travel into Wales is not permitted at present without reasonable excuse and it seems that does not include coming to the pub.

When deciding what time you would like to book your table for, please bear in mind that we are required to stop serving by 10pm and to have the pub empty and closed by 10.20pm every night.  Please also note that we are required to limit the time you spend with us so each table booking is for an hour and a half unless you request longer at the time of booking.  The maximum time allowed is 2 hours.

We are now permitted to take bookings for people from different households.  Up to four people from different households can now take a table, but any tables of more than four people can only be for people from the same household and we are required to check that all live at the same address so documentary proof will be required.  These rules apply indoors and outdoors.  Children under age 11 do not count towards the number of people allowed, nor does a carer for someone in the group.

Every person in the group will be required to provide their name and contact details for the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service and to note their arrival and departure time on our forms.  We are required to verify your identity so please bring with you your driving licence or bank cards.  We know this will seem strange and intrusive (for us as well as for you!) but we are required to do this and if we don’t, we could be closed down so please comply with good grace, we simply won’t be able to serve you if you refuse to comply.  Records will be kept securely for 21 days and then destroyed and the information will not, of course, be used for any other purpose whatsoever.

We are staggering booking times to limit the overall number of people in the pub at any one time so please arrive on time for your booking.  If you are early we may have to ask you to wait outside, if you are late we may not be able to serve you at all.

When you are here, service is strictly at your table only, please do not come to the bar and do not mingle indoors with people from other tables.  Face coverings are required to be worn at all times except when seated at your table to drink.  We may sometimes open windows or doors to aid ventilation so please dress warmly or bring a warm wrap or jacket with you.

Payment by card is preferred.

Bar opening times:

Wednesday and Thursday – 6pm to 10pm

Friday – 5pm to 10pm

Saturday –  12 noon to 2.30pm, 5pm to 10pm

Sunday – 12noon to 10pm

Cask-conditioned real ales

We generally keep two real ales on hand-pump, selected from a wide range of local breweries, and some of the best independent breweries from further afield. Limiting the availability to two ales ensures that the beer is always in the best condition and quality possible.   The list below includes some of our regular guest beers and occasional favourites but we are always open to suggestions as to new beers to try and we are happy for customers to taste our beers before they decide which to buy:

Three Tuns (Shropshire) XXX ABV 4.3% and Rantipole ABV 3.6%

Hobson’s (Shropshire) Town Crier ABV 4.5% and Twisted Spire ABV 3.6%

Wye Valley Brewery (Herefordshire) HPA ABV 4% and seasonal ales

Ludlow Brewery (Shropshire) Gold ABV 4.2% and Blonde ABV 4%

Salopian Brewery (Shropshire) Oracle ABV 4% and Darwin’s Origin ABV 4.3%

Holden’s Golden Glow (West Midlands) ABV 4.4%

Batham’s Best Bitter (West Midlands) ABV 4.2%

Skinner’s (Cornwall) Betty Stogs ABV 4%

Millstone Brewery (Greater Manchester) Tiger Rut 4%

Timothy Taylor (Yorkshire) Landlord ABV 4.3%


We are located just a stone’s throw from the border with Herefordshire, still the site of many ancient cider orchards and fantastic local cidermakers.  We are therefore spoilt for choice in deciding which to stock to meet the varied tastes of our customers.  We are currently keeping three ciders on draught, Robinsons traditional style premium quality Flagon made in limited quantities in Tenbury Wells and only available to selected independent venues, the ever popular Westons Stowford Press and Aspalls.

For those who prefer their cider bottled we also keep a range of Gwatkins award winning traditional farmhouse ciders and perry made in the Golden Valley, Herefordshire.


Herefordshire has also become a destination for gin lovers with a plethora of brilliant small producers.  We keep a selection of those we like best, including Sly Gin from Dilwyn (varieties include pink grapefruit and lemon verbena), Penrhos (their rhubarb gin is a particular favourite!) and Chase.
