Harry’s is named 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. It has been said there is not a garden in England that doesn’t feature a plant from Harry’s many expeditions. Sir Harry was also the founder of the famous Chelsea Flower Show.
The bar is filled with plant life and exotic travel memorabilia, in a nod to the intrepid plant hunters Harry dispatched on voyages to places abroad. Book lined rooms provide a colourful and inviting atmosphere in an elegant Raffles style environment. With walls covered in vintage botanicals, and dramatic high ceilings dripping with split cane lamp shades, the space is cosy but elegant. 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.
