SHOPPERS can get a taste of luxury in a new Harrods café in Oxfordshire – the first time the brand has left its Knightsbridge home.

Harrods unveiled its new standalone café, H café, in Henley-on-Thames earlier this week, in a bid to ‘bring the Harrods experience’ to customers outside of central London.

The café, located in Market Place, will offer dine in and dine out options, and will ‘showcase a curated range of gifting options across food, drink and home accessories’ as well as a click and collect service for customers to buy from

Oxford Mail:

H café will serve food made daily by Harrods chefs, replicating the current food-to-go and deli options in the Harrods Food Halls and restaurants. The menu will include breakfast, all-day and evening dishes as well as special weekend offerings such as afternoon tea.

Executive head chef of Harrods Food & Beverage Andy Cook said visitors to the café can expect a selection of offerings from the Knightsbridge menus, ‘from Fresh Market Hall favourites such as potted crab, to the famous lobster toastie from the Fish Bar, to the celebrated cheese and charcuterie boards from the Perrier-Jouët Champagne Terrace’.

Chris Dee, Harrods’ director of Food & Home, said: “We always want to ensure that we are allowing our customers access to the Harrods experience in new and innovative ways, but also in a way that speaks to their busy lives.

Oxford Mail:

“Through H café in Henley, we want to cater for those customers who appreciate the convenience of shopping through, but still want a comfortable and elevated in-store collection experience.

“H café will allow Harrods customers to taste the famous Harrods Food Halls offering, while also providing the convenience of shopping through in an elevated space.
