Harry Stoke is a village in the parish of Stoke Gifford, South Gloucestershire, England.

There were three manors in the parish of Stoke Gifford. The Giffards and Berkeleys held Stoke and Walls. Harry Stoke was a separate manor held by Aldred in Saxon times, Theobald in Norman times and the Blount and De Filton families in medieval times. The Berkeleys bought it in the l6th century.

One of the last coal mines in the Bristol Coalfield was at Harry Stoke. The mine was a drift mine, begun in 1952. Bad roof conditions made the mine uneconomical, and it closed in 1963.
