Gastropubs are plentiful across Dallas, but with its combination of a cozy and welcoming dining room and fare that warms both the body and soul, Harwood Arms does the best job of bringing English sensibility and an authentic pub experience close to home. To step inside Harwood Arms is to step into a Welsh country house, with rich millwork, warm lighting and comfortable and secluded booths and tables. When it comes to food, Harwood Arms puts all other bar food to shame, whether you order the homey shepherd's pie, a cooked-to-order salmon or the brilliant chicken tiki masala. Topping it off is Harwood's amazing service, which only seems to improve when the pub gets busier, and every visit makes us feel right at home.
Top Pick: Pop in on Sunday afternoon after 4 p.m. and take in the Sunday roast, an English tradition. For $30 (or $50 for two), you get a slab of tender and juicy roast served with seasonal vegetables, roasted potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and traditional gravy. British accents not included.
