Eat at the Harp at Old Radnor

Please read the following paragraphs before booking a table with us.  We are doing our best to keep everyone safe in these difficult times and we trust and expect that our customers will respect and support our efforts.  We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is not prepared to do so.

Firstly it surely goes without saying by now that you should not come if you have any symptoms of covid-19, or have been told to self isolate due to close contact with a confirmed case ~ please stay at home and get a test instead!

Secondly, while restrictions on the number of people who can meet indoors and outdoors have been lifted, we are still restricted in the number of people we can serve at any particular time especially as like many hospitality businesses we are often finding ourselves short staffed at the moment.  It is therefore essential to book your table in advance, we are unlikely to be able 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-sell a table even at short notice.

We will still be asking customers to provide their name and contact details for the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service in case of an outbreak.  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.

When you are here, you are requested to wear a face covering except when seated at a table, to make use of the hand sanitiser provided and to remain seated at your table as much as possible.  We may sometimes open windows or doors to aid ventilation so please dress warmly or bring a warm wrap or jacket with you.

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.
