Great service food and ambience.
Good food and friendly service in very pleasant surroundings. The only negative was the dreadful music they switched on half way through our meal. Unnecessary and annoying.
They were sooooo friendly to Sprout my dog :-)))))
Visiting again in 9 days
Starters and mains served at same time
Heater was not offered despite being next to us
Under Covid restrictions, overall a good experience.
Couldn't do anything about next table being full of cigar smoking drinkers.
Excellent place. Great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere. Food is good. Service was a bit slow. Staff are friendly and hardworking.
Excellent just a little bit expensive for amount of food
We ate outside, as it’s only 1 day after lockdown easing in April. The staff were amazing, super helpful. Felt very safe, lots of space and patios heaters to keep you warm too! The food was amazing, loads to choose from, beautifully presented, good sized portions. All in all a lovely Birthday dinner for 2. Thank you
Under the current circumstances the staff were very well organised and helpfull. They were tested even more when the heavens opened and everyone was given a parasol to help keep the customers dry. Well done to everyone!!
The second lunchtime after the lift up of some regulations Everyone was keen to please. As first time diners we found the parking difficult to understand - no clear advice.
No heater or parasol at the table service abysmal had to order online food and drink.
This was the first evening after lockdown restrictions were eased. It was busy and staff were under pressure but they did their best. We were however hugely disappointed to be allocated one of the few tables with no heater on a freezing night, despite having made the reservation and requested a heater over 2 months earlier. Food was excellent and they all did their best. Wouldn't go again if I couldn't be guaranteed a heater
Just a drink on the sunshine
Very good to be back after the past three months .
Super service lovely food - what a shame lock down has forced it to close again!
Had an amazing salmon with pesto and chorizo we could not fault it. The service as usual was outstanding.
Enjoyable dinning experience, food good and nicely presented. Service also good but would have preferred to eat in bar not dinning room for greater atmosphere.
The Fat Badger was a gorgeous place to have a moderately priced meal, but fantastic food in a lovely setting.
Very safe and good service.
Fabulous evening at Fat Badger during what must be a tremendously challenging time for restaurants. We were struck by the great service and charisma of all the staff whilst maintaining observance of the rules - can't be easy. Our waitress was friendly, fun and engaging and the food was delicious. Looking forward to returning very soon!
Excellent restaurant located in the heart of Harrogate.
Private parking behind the hotel makes this a great choice as parking in the town is difficult.
Service is excellent and waiting staff are extremely attentive.
Food quality is 5* and the ambience and surroundings make it a perfect dining experience.
Highly recommended and we’ll be back again.
Great service. Good food. We went on a rainy Sunday and the atmosphere cheered us up. The staff couldn't do enough for us. We'll definitely be back.
Very good restaurant friendly staff,
Price very good.
Food and beer were fine. The service previously has been very good but was a bit slow this time with no one taking our food order until I started waving my arms about. In the past I would have gone to find someone but having to wear a mask makes that a chore.
Unlike some places where you can't have a drink first, they have the new rules well sorted out with drinks allowed whilst contemplating the menu and a simple 2 hour rule.
Really lovely place to eat would definately recommend. I think my only comments would be it was a little too dark in the restaurant and the menu was quite limited. The mussels to start were outstanding!
We really enjoyed our meal , it is a lovely restaurant and the staff were extremely attentive
Excellent service, really enjoyed our visit
A lovely way to spend Christmas Eve.
We had a great evening .
Food was amazing and staff great .
We have booked again for New Year’s Eve
Very good steak
Lovely evening as usual
Great first experience of fat badger. Lively atmosphere, festive feel, beautiful decorations and lights. Some normality in a crap 2020
We enjoyed a lovely lunch. The food was delicious and the restaurant was exquisite. We waited rather a long time for our drinks order to arrive even though the restaurant wasn't too busy. We had to remind the waiter to bring our wine once our main course arrived at our table. He was very polite and apologetic. We all enjoyed our food and we will return.
Nice ambience, nice food, nice ale, polite staff,
Fabulous meal friendly staff will.definately return
Fabulous venue, food was amazing, felt really looked after and reasonably priced!!! Will be back ❤️
Fabulous service, great atmosphere and food was delicious
The food was so poor for the price.
We had to send food back because it came out cold and when it came back the dish was red hot as though it had been in the microwave.
I would expect better quality food in a fast food restaurant, it was bland and tasteless.
Service was ok however we had to ask twice for drinks and waited ages for the bill.
The service was very friendly and what you’d come to expect from the Fat Badger. One of the meals was very poor which was disappointing.
