Very friendly helpful staff. Good vegetarian selection. Big portions. Great value. Went both nights we were in Harrogate despite lots of other options. Very accommodating. Only downside is it is a bit cold. Could do with some heating.

Food as usual excellent. Love having different dishes which we prefer to starter and main. Service very good with polite attentive staff. Tables well spaced for a change so had room to move and eat unlike other places. We will return and recommend

OK so it was a busy night last day of world championships... BUT we had been to 2 other restaurants the previous 2 evenings who were busy but we were treated far better. Mediocre is best I could give scran.. We arrived I told them we had a booking there were only 5 tables occupied... The other half of the restaurant was empty... Instead of sitting us on a table for 2 already laid up... They cleaned a booth table next to a group of very loud men... Celebrating their time in Harrogate...
We were not asked were we wanted to sit... And subsequent diners were sat in the quieter area.
We quickly ordered our meal so we could leave as soon as possible... Fishcakes we're not as expected. And lamb shank was mediocre.. But the ambience spoilt our meal... We did not expect the diners to keep the noise down But they could have thought of the best place for couples to sit... Hence paid for our meal no tip... Other than think about your diners!!!!!!

Nice restaurant in Harrogate, food was tasty and delivered in good time.

One slight issue was there was a party going on in the hotel so that is all you could hear in the restaurant.

We both had the fillet steak & it was superb. The side orders were equally as good.
The service was fantastic & a fabulous range of drinks especially their Gin selection.
We can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough.
It’s a shame we’re not locals as this would definitely be somewhere we’d enjoy dining in on a regular basis.

Good choice of dishes, surprisingly large portions so easy to over order. Mini fish and chips, short rib croquettes both fab.
Service attentive without being overbearing. I feel the restaurant decor is a bit stark and some areas a bit scruffy although I appreciate upgrading in progress.

Fantastic Food, loved the whole experience. Dean is a great chef and his new venture is amazing, the quality of the meat is excellent and very tasty. I would recommend letting Dean choose a Yorkshire Tapas just for you and your tastes!

Brilliant, creative tapas. Generous portions. Highly recommend the haddock fondue and the happy meal (2 delicious pork & beef slider burgers, fries smothered in aioli and cheese, rhubarb milkshake). When going for the 2+1 menu, recommend getting a salad as a side - the portions are big.

we visited for a birthday meal, and it was lovely. we have been a few times before and although the menu was very similar there are usually 1 or 2 changes. would defiantly recommend the weeping tiger, and i had a parmo chicken this time , i had heard of this before as a middlesbrough dish and it was really tasty.

There was a large party in that could not be controlled. The ambience was ruined and not an enjoyable atmosphere to be in. The restaurant ran out of Sunday dinners at 7.30 and there was very limited choice thereafter. Wouldn’t go again

Great food and service. Were able to adapt the menu against my wife’s garlic intolerance, which is so unusual.

Food great in flavour, I had the haddock fondue, pork stew and a to die for desert in vanilla and basil cheesecake. Great to see they are fighters on the gluten free front too

This place is fantastic. I love that you get to try lots of smaller dishes meaning a greater variety. The steak and burgers are also delicious however I will always recommend the halloumi tacos to anyone who goes as they are amazing!

The Scran menu has lots to recommend it. Good variety - options very clearly presented. I had the crispy prawns which were excellent. I also had the weeping tiger steak which was perhaps a little too spicy for my taste. Only one of our group had a dessert - the crème brulee. I only got a taste - it was delicious. Might give up on chips next time and have a pudding instead!
Scran is good value and a different way to have a meal out.

Love this place. Food is always excellent with a very good, varied menu and the mix & match meal choices, inspired. Since discovering Scran, it has become my favourite venue for meals out with friends and family. Generous gapping between tables, friendly, professional staff and convivial surroundings make it an ideal place for conversation and relaxing with companions. The venue is split into two distinct areas. The bar with seating at tall tables or booths, video screen and big windows for watching the world walk past or the restaurant area to the rear, slightly more formal. You can choose which area you wish to dine. Can't think of anything at all that I would wish to see done better.

Food was really good, the staff did not rush us and served a few dishes together rather than all of the ones ordered for the table. Would definitely go back. Been a while ago and had the 5 course taster menu which was lovely!

We have been to Scran several times before and always had a great meal. This time was no different- a new menu with new tastes but all lovely and tasty. Chris and the team provided excellent service as usual! We’ll be back! Would definitely recommend Scran.
