Eat at the Harp at Old Radnor

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 current menu is set out below and 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. On Friday and Saturday lunchtimes we also offer a selection of freshly made sandwiches.

Our Sunday lunch comprises a traditional roast with a choice of two meats, and a fish and a vegetarian option; main courses cost £14, starters and desserts are priced from £5. Two courses cost £19 for adults and £12 for child’s portions, three courses £24 and £17 respectively.

We are always happy to discuss requests from customers for particular dishes, set menus or buffet menus for special occasions.

Not all ingredients are listed on the menu, please let us know if you have any food allergies or other dietary requirements. Dishes marked + can be made gluten free on request and * can be made dairy free on request, please let your server know when ordering if you require these options

 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.
