Parking options near us
If you're visting us by car, here are a few options of convenient places to park:
- You can park for two hours on City Road for just a couple of pounds.
- There is parking on Dee Lane a short walk away towards the river that is free for 4 hours
- Or just a short walk towards the railway station, you'll find a few Pay and Display options.
There is level access into the pub, and we have a disabled loo - or rather, a loo for the disabled. Please let us know if you need assistance and we'll be happy to help.
Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in the bar area.
Children and minors
Harkers is an adult only environment and so this unfortunately means we are unable to accommodate children. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Stag parties and Hen do's
I'm afraid we don't really do Stag parties or Hen parties.
We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.
Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.
Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
