Reviews for Tavern Harewood

I had reserved a table for a meal with friends. When we went to the counter to be seated the staff member presumed we were under 18 and told us " you all must be 18 to eat here or you must have a legal guardian eating with you". We were all over this age but only a couple of us had i.d with us, so we were unable to eat there.
I understand that the staff had to follow the restaurant rules, but i was disappointed and found it very inconvenient that they had not informed us over the phone when we booked or even put somewhere on the website that we had to prove we were 18 or over just to eat the food. We had to leave and find another restaurant in the end.

We always come away from the Harewood feeling we got great value for money. The mains are well presented, tasty and all very reasonably priced at 20 dollars. A good size portion and fast friendly service. The place is always busy and the restaurant is usually full. Bookings are definitely recommended. We eat there regularly and the flinstone steak is one of our favourites. Great for a group or family night out. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner but great for a casual night out.

Went there with my girlfriend for the second time, had to return because it was that good!
Service was good, and we started with a sourdough loaf and flatbread, both of which were fresh and tasty.
Next were mains, a beef wellington for myself and chicken fettuccine for her. My beef was perfectly rare, the portion size was great and it was delicious overall. The fettuccine was flavourful and filling.
Full from the two previous courses, we split a chocolate mousse for dessert. It was everything it was supposed to be and more.
Good service, great food and awesome value. Do recommend.

Very busy place at times, staff go out of there way to try and fit you in when there are even reserved tables. With the reserved table we were given a time limit which was great to know how long we had. Excellent service, quick and excellent meals, very consistent, have eaten here on several occasions and will be returning there in the very near future, also very good value for money most meals being around the $20 dollar mark, so you can dine out for 2 with a wine and beer for around $50.00
