Ingredients and Inspiration
The restaurants around Harrogate draw upon food culture from all across the globe – with Mediterranean, Mexican, Vietnamese, and even Nordic inspired dishes to be found.
Many of our restaurants care passionately about the provenance of their ingredients and enjoy sharing this information with their customers and telling the ‘field to plate’ story of their ingredients.
Our Delicious History
In Harrogate itself we couldn’t overlook the genteel heritage of the town and the quintessentially English experience of afternoon tea! We have an abundance of wonderful cafes and tea rooms serving lovingly baked cakes and bakes to revive visitors suffering that mid-afternoon energy dip.
Small is beautiful and you will find many examples of where this has been taken to heart and intimate and cosy surroundings are accompanied by delicious food and the dedicated personal touch in service and preparation.
Something More Substantial
There is also the reliable old favourite; a traditional pint and something deliciously filling and homemade to satisfy your hunger pangs in front of a roaring log fire in an unspoilt country pub, especially after a long day out walking in the hills. We have plenty to choose from – and many will welcome your dog if you don’t want to leave your best friend behind!
Local breweries and microbreweries offer a range of beers inspired by the local area and ale enthusiasts will find the choice of brews from around the Harrogate district to sample quite simply overwhelming.
