Pubs & Bars in Harrogate & District

You’re never far from a choice of real ales or decadent cocktails in the  pubs and bars of Harrogate District.  With such a long history comes a wealthy heritage in coaching inns and public houses which has built on ad refined over the years. 

Whether you are camping in the beauty of Upper Nidderdale or staying on one of Harrogate’s finest hotels, lively refreshment, rich in character will only be a short walk away.

Harrogate, Ripon and Knaresborough each host a lively bar scene with a mixture of cocktail bars, traditional pubs and live music bars with a great range of local and not so local drinks.

After busy day scouring the shops, or taking in the floral delights of our many houses and gardens what better way to relax than in the sun with Kir Royale, in pristine comfort with a witheringly Dry Martini or next to a roaring fire with a comfortingly robust glass of red.  Sit back, relax and let the highly trained bar staff look after you in one of the great Harrogate bars. 

Once you get out in the countryside, the pubs and inns of the smaller towns and villages offer a warm welcome on brisk winter’s day with real fires, fine ales and freshly prepared locally sourced food including local game and beef. 

In the summer the beer gardens are the best place to spend a warm evening with the added option of some deliciously repared local pub food to complement the view over Nidderdale.

With several famous breweries in our borders and many more around us, real ale enthusiasts will find themselves in beer heaven as they sample the delights of the brewer’s craft, from the standard pint of Best, to seasonal and special brews.  In addition many of the harrogate pubs maintain an impressive array of guest ales that will satisfy any thirst.
