On the former site of The Harcourt Arms, this Marylebone gastropub reopened in April 2016 with a new menu and a new look. Chef Kimmo Makkonen’s (Greenhouse, The Orrery) European menu nods toward Nordic and Scandi cuisine, and – though it’s had the odd mixed review in the press – won instant high ratings from reporters for its “high-end restaurant quality food”.
This beautiful bar and restaurant celebrates its Scandinavian heritage with relaxed, all-day modern-European dining and drinking that includes a nod to Nordic cuisine. Expect home infusions, house-made cures and tasty pickles which can be enjoyed in any of the various spaces that have retained the original elements of the building. The wine have distinct Mediterranean character, while craft beers from across Scandinavia are served. The Oak Room is where you can enjoy an eclectic mix of Japanese whiskeys and the finest akvavit. The Garden Room has a calmer, brighter ambiance where rotating wine specials will be served. The Summer Room, has a high glass-topped roof conservatory and is complemented by a broodily-lit floor and elegant lighting, and is perfect for a fika (Swedish afternoon tea).
The Harcourt Restaurant Diner Reviews
"It's more the dÃ©cor than the menu that makes this a gastropub. This is resturant dining, though the first courses make the running on the mains. Beautiful 'Bream poke' more recognisable as excellently spiced bream ceviche was the hit. The pulled lamb didn't live up to the excitement the description offered on the menu. Wine was disappointingly expensive far the quality of the list."
