The list— No.22

The Harwood Arms

The only Michelin-starred pub in the capital, The Harwood Arms, is a London institution boasting some impressive credentials.

Eating at The Harwood Arms is a cosy affair that won’t break the bank… unless you let the extensive wine list carry you away.

Adding to the pub’s culinary credentials is the fact it is co-owned by chef extraordinaire Brett Graham, whose double Michelin-starred Notting Hill restaurant, The Ledbury, was named the fourteenth best restaurant in the world in 2016’s World’s 50 Best.

The Harwood Arms prides itself on being “not your average gastropub”, with menu highlights such as buttered Cornish crab on English muffins with coastal herbs and pickled lemon; confit duck leg with pumpkin and orange marmalade, Swiss chard and kohlrabi; and poached pear with vanilla cream, walnut and stem ginger, cooked up skilfully by head chef Alex Harper.

The Harwood Arms is phenomenally popular, so it’s best to call ahead to avoid disappointment. Harper’s menus are delectable year-round, but a well-timed visit during shooting season could result in a truly memorable meal comprised of game.

The pub offers an affordable daily changing menu priced at £24.50 for two courses or £29.50 for three. It also offers a range of vegetarian options and feasting menus for large parties.
