Sept 9th 2021 - We are very excited to announce the appointment of our new Head Chef Gerald van der Walt, joining us to head the team in Harry's Cafe in October 2021. This follows Alan Forsyth's move to a new appointment in Kendal after a very successful three years in Harry's where he has developed menus and made a great success of the monthly supper club; we wish him all the best in his new role.
Gerald has a very fine reputation, having worked in many notable restaurants in the UK and his native South Africa, most recently launching and developing the Gaddum at Brockhole, so we are really looking forward to sharing the exciting plans for food at Yew Tree Barn.
Please note that for the next couple of weeks Harry's will be running a reduced menu as we await Gerald's arrival and staff holidays are taken; please be patient with the staff who will do their best to give you our usual excellent food and service!

Harry's was established in 2012 and we're delighted with how it's grown. We outgrew our original space after a couple of years so March 2016 saw an expansion and refurbishment which our regular customers love! We've retained the same atmosphere and eclectic style, and as before, everything is for sale so if you like the table and chairs or cushions and accessories etc you're welcome to purchase!
 We have established an excellent team of staff and devised a great menu, along with a good selection of wines and beers. Alan Forsyth is our very experienced and talented head chef.  Originally from Scotland Alan has worked in Cumbria for the last 30 years, and has experience in many of the best kitchens. 
All our supplies are from local producers (we aim to keep our food miles as low as possible) Higginson's Butchers, The Cheese Larder, More Artisan Bakery, Cartmel Valley Game, EWGA, Lakes Speciality Foods, Kendal Fish & Game, Woodbine Dairies, and several local breweries.  Please just ask if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements. We always have gluten free choices, along with dairy free dishes, soya milk etc.
 Dogs are welcome too.  Please pop in and see us, we're delighted with the response from our customers who've left some excellent reviews on Tripadvisor too! 
We welcome all feedback, and if there is anything you’re not completely satisfied with please let us know straight away so that we can put it right for you.
