Yorkshire’s reputation for outstanding food and drink is distilled into Harrogate’s mix of independent restaurants and familiar high street names that cater for all appetites and tastes.  

Even with just a little time, there are light bites in the award winning independent cafés that pride themselves on quality coffee beans and freshly prepared artisan breads and pastries, or take the family to a friendly pizzeria where pizza is elevated to a delicious art form.

Our Delicious History

You can’t overlook the genteel heritage of the Harrogate food and drink and the quintessentially English experience of afternoon tea. We have an abundance of wonderful cafés and tea rooms, serving lovingly baked cakes and savouries 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.

Inspiration and Ingredients

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.

If you would like to earn a little more about the local food producers or take the taste of Yorkshire home with you, there are food markets and events taking place across the area.
