    I live in Harrogate so have been a few times. The food is consistently good. The staff are friendly and professional . My only suggestion would be to allow more time to look at the menu before asking for orders. Other than that it is a great venue with amazing food and friendly/ welcoming staff team. Thank you !

    Tables a bit close together in the restaurant so we had to listen to the lady next to us running down the menu and being generally annoying but she was so close that there was no way to tune it out. Food was lovely. Staff were lovely but maybe a bit inexperienced though they made it up with good manners and attentiveness. A good dining experience overall.

    Front of house where too young . It was cold in the restaurant. Food took too long to come. 1.5 hrs for two courses .Dessert for 3 was delivered for 2 - 3rd taken off the bill but not the point as the others had finished. Sunday lunch contained zero green veg ? Card machine presented without the bill?

    We were greeted at the entrance and shown to a reserved booth in the bar area. Open plan and not loud we prefer eating here with a view of the street to the restaurant tables. We ordered drinks after being shown to the table which were served within minutes. At the arrival of our drinks we ordered our starters and main course. Our prawn cocktails were delicious and copiously served. The main course was served hot and accompanied by roast potatoes and vegetables. The staff were friendly and always asked if we were enjoying our meal and if we required anything else. Lovely family meal, we will be back.

    Lovely food. Service ok, but when we asked a waitress for help, she immediately said " my shift has ended, you'll have to get someone else". Not impressed! They had forgotten about our desert. When we asked, it appeared from the kitchen straight away. We thought the cocktails were two for £12, but didn't see the small print. We would go again if we visited Harrogate again.

    Had high expectations, venue looks smart and nice decor. We booked a table for two- restaurant 90% empty and we were directed to the table next to the service desk! We asked to change and the waitress was not happy that we requested that and grudgingly took us to a super table. Food was mediocre pub food- only two vegetarian options which were uninspiring. Macaroni cheese served with a bunch of 6 vine tomatoes still on the vine- strange garnish. Indian burger served with a tiny onion bahji and the shoestring fries were tiny bits of fries- like the end of the bag dregs (McDonald’s fries better) . Cheese board to finish was very dull, limp celery, tiny bits of cheese and 5 grapes. Won’t be recommending it. Could be something special, lots of competition around that is much better.

    Staff member showed the couple ahead of us to their table from the Maître d' stand and then didn’t come back! Five of us were left standing and had to go into the restaurant to find someone. Otherwise the ambience was good, as was the food, but the experience was let down by the young server assigned to us who was completely disinterested. Also the music playlist was oddly out of step with the venue and clientele – sounded more like it was for the staff’s entertainment than adding anything to the experience.

    We were really looking forward to dining here so quite disappointed … the service was bad interaction and waited so long for a menu for dessert we just asked for the bill .. the chef at the pass looked unenthusiastic and the three young girls chatting and not wanting to be there !! The food was ok , the wine good , the room lovely and the price good . Unfortunately can’t recommend .

    It was honestly quite disappointing. The photos of the food online looked spectacular but the actual food served was of the quality of a fairly cheap pub. All the food just plonked on the plate too with no care. There was also a bizarre lack of service. There was nobody at the door when we arrived so we walked through the restaurant for a while with everyone seemingly ignoring us and then eventually had to interrupt one of the waitresses (who was talking to a friend) to ask which table we were supposed to go to
