A cut above the other offers locally (that we visited - apologies to those we did not). So good we went back twice. Irish Fry and Coffee were excellent highlights being the sausage and poached eggs. Service was superb even though it was very busy, very friendly and attentive. Only minor complaint, which is not really a complaints, being that... More

I have been going to Harlem for years now and haven't had a bad meal yet. The service is good, atmosphere is really lovely and there is a really good selection of both food and desserts.

Harlem does really good food but they need to bring the quality from the kitchen through to the restaurant floor. When I arrived for Sunday brunch back in December the table hadn't been properly wiped down leaving me with a sticky arm and then when it came to ordering you'd have thought asking to swap a black pudding for a...

Quirky and random but beautiful decor. Great and hearty Irish food, at a reasonable price, quick service. You can choose the couches or standard chairs, very cosy and warm during mid January and great welcoming ambience. Thoroughly recommended!

Went here for lunch a couple of times, service was great, especially a lady with dark hair, she was just so lovely. (the lady with blonde hair and glasses was not nice on either occasion) not bad prices and the food was nice (don't order scampi though). Anyway I would recommend a visit

We were greeted so well by the lovely... More

Very funky bistro which we visited for breakfast. It was busy which is a good sign. Fifteen minute wait but worth it. The stafff are friendly and the food was great value and very tasty. Much better than typical hotel offer.
