Part of the team named Pub Group of the Year 2013 by The Good Pub Guide, The Old Harkers Arms is a much-loved waterside hideaway from Brunning & Price. As well as the token pub hospitality, enjoy freshly-cooked British food, silky cask beers, affordable wine and rich coffees. Quick-bite sandwiches and nostalgic puddings are on offer, and as well as gourmet gastro pub mains and light bites. Found on the canal, this converted warehouse has an authentic homely feel, filled with vintage pictures, leather-bound books and mismatched furnishings.

    My first meal at Harkers and I have to say everything about the place is Absolutely fantastic!!!! The Staff both behind the bar and waiting on at the table go above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. The food is gorgeous too will definitely be back soon.

    Lovely location and a beautiful place. Food was excellent- I can especially recommend the cod loin. The staff were friendly and helpful , I asked if they did Gaelic coffees and the waitress said they weren't on the menu but that she would do one for me. Lovely evening
