Review: Harry's Grill Bar

After visiting Harry's Restaurant in Exeter back-along, we were both really impressed and couldn't wait to try out their sister restaurant, Harry's Grill Bar.  We have been there before, a long while ago and we really loved it so wanted to see if it would still live up to our expectations.

The Pounds family opened Harry's Restaurant in 2003 and serve good quality, honest food at affordable prices. While Harry's Restaurant offers food from all over the world, the Grill bar specialises in, and has built quite a glowing reputation about their steaks. They strive to bring the best possible produce to the table and work with some fantastic local suppliers and also offer a cocktail bar for the the prefect pre and post meal drinks.

We started if with some delicious bread and butter, so delicious that this picture is of the last piece of bread- we had been too busy chomping away to take a photo! A lovely start to a meal, and you can tell that it has been freshly baked.  We also had some lovely ice cold brought to our table, a nice touch as my lovely glass of Merlot wasn't exactly thirst quenching!

I had a rump steak, cooked rare and served with triple cooked fries, tomato and watercress. All harry’s meat is 100% Devon reared, and fantastic quality. The meat just melts in the mouth and is so tender. Nick had a ribeye, which he said was as equally melt in the mouth, flavoursome and cooked perfectly. The fries are lovely and crispy, due to cooking them thrice. The peppercorn sauce that was served with it was delicious, full of pepper yet creamy and smooth.  

To go with our amazing steaks we ordered some Scrumpy battered onion rings. There were a lot more than there is in the picture, but again they were so nice that half of them had disappeared before I took the picture!  The batter is so light and crispy and perfectly seasoned.  They are a great accompaniment, and taste great dipped in the peppercorn sauce, as well as on their own.

We were so satisfyingly full after our meals that we were unable to fit anything else in without being uncomfortable for the rest of the night, so didn't order any puddings, but we will be returning soon to try more!
