HARRY’S WINE AND BEVERAGE LIST
Filled with plant life and exotic travel memorabilia, it honours the intrepid plant hunters of Victorian times. Walls covered in tea stained, sepia botanicals, massive hanging baskets dripping with devils ivy, kentia palms and tree ferns, split cane lamp shades …. a slightly jungle atmosphere meets an elegant Raffles style bar. Large vintage pics of the plant hunters on expeditions to far and dangerous parts of the world tie in well with The Orangery plant gallery and The Potting Shed garden centre outside … and the elegant atmosphere of Plantation Cafe next door. The restaurant is called Harry’s after the renowned English nurseryman and horticulturist, Sir Harry Veitch who dispatched daring plant hunters to foreign lands to find exotic treasures for his wealthy London clientele.
Harry’s on Green Lane is next to the famous Dirty Janes Antique Markets and nestled behind the elegant corporate centre, The Acre. It is open daily from 10am to 5pm with lunch from 12 noon – 3pm … and on Friday and Saturday nights there’s a delicious dinner menu with ‘classic rustic’ share plates and a special offering of scrumptious bar snacks.
