Lovely staff. Some members of the group did not like the food arriving at different times but we had been warned.Tasty food but a bit too much red cabbage. (On nearly every dish) Will definitely go again.

We visited Yorkshire Tapas on a cold, wet Easter Monday. We were greeted with a warm welcome and directed upstairs. Yorkshire Tapas is houses within a fab Gin bar with lovely green booths to sit in. We chose a booth for two in the window and I went to pursue the 120 Gins in offer. The young girl on the bar was new but didn’t let it faze her; she recommended some Gins to try. We deliberately booked a table for 2pm as a singer was due to start their set in the downstairs bar. What a treat we were in for, his voice was like velvet 😍
We were promptly served by the same girl and she recommended we try 3 portions of tapas each but as we were due to eat out again later that day we opted for 2 each. We were so glad we did as the portions were most generous. We had Yorkshire pudding with mash and beef, Belly pork in a delicious gravy, Yorkshire pudding wrap and a side of proper chips, cooked in dripping. Everything was absolutely delicious and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yorkshire Tapas, their delicious food and their fab and friendly staff 😁

Enjoyable meal in the booths upstairs at The Blues Café. Really friendly service on a busy night. You can eat your meal and watch the band on the TV (but hear them live) then wander downstairs later. If you like live music you’ll love it

A different eating experience with the Yorkshire Tapas theme. Food generally ok but not special. Calamari great but only 4 rings for £7! Hence, price adds up to eat enough courses. A good atmosphere if you like it load. Waitress very helpful but busy. I would recommend you try it to see if it is to your taste.

What a find !!! Great service & the food was sensational. We went with some of the recommendations from the guy that served us. He'd obviously had eaten the food he was selling & was very passionate about the menu & his knowledge about each dish was spot on. The live music just made the night. We're definitely putting the Yorkshire tapas on the top of our to do list next time we visit Harrogate.

Great "Yorkshire" eating experience. We had booked and were given, after some debate, the window table for two! The 'tapas' was a delightful selection of traditional Yorkshire specialities and we were pleased but somewhat surprised to see that some Yorkshire-style Indian dishes had made it to the menu. The 'desserts' were missing and, with Betty's Cafe only next door, there could easily have been Yorkshire Curd Tart on the menu. The Rumanian waiter knew nothing of the Yorkshireness of the menu and would have been unable to advise. However, his service was very polite, accurate and accommodating - well done Sir! The 'tapas-style' eating worked well for us and the final bill was very acceptable. Unfortunately, the music in the Blues Bar on the night we were there was cancelled through lack of a drummer! Very disappointing end to our evening in Harrogate.

Service got off to a shaky start, apparently due to a power cut in the kitchen, they only told us after we reminded them we'd been waiting nearly an hour! The waiter apologized profusely and brought us a bowl of chips 'To be going on with'! (Fantastic btw). Rest of our food was fabulous, pulled pork and haddock goujons which with the chips was plenty for two of us. The live music was Ace and a great atmosphere, staff and locals exceptionally friendly - a really great find. Highly recommended

The waitresses in the upstairs restaurant and bar were extremely friendly, humorous, and had extensive knowledge of the dishes on the menu. For good traditional Yorkshire food 'with a twist' this place is a must. The 'Yorkshire Tapas' dishes are definitely more substantial than any 'Spanish Tapas'!! Don't miss the hand cut chips done in beef dripping fat! Tasted like chips should taste! - all round enjoyable evening, especially when you factor in the live music too.

Sooooooo Good

*5 Food / Drinks
This is just what Harrogate needed, a real hidden gem.

This place was recommended by someone who we spoke to earlier in the day who had eaten Lunch their that same day.

What a find!!!

The food was fantastic and cooked very well, we ordered what seemed like everything, I was so full but I couldn't leave an empty plate.

I had the Yorkshire chorizo chilli with fresh bakers bread,
The flambé Slingsby gin chorizo sausage & couldn’t resist the Yorkshire Pudding with Brisket Beef

The service, food and presentation was second to none.
We were so impressed we're back next Thursday!

We enjoyed the food and drink . The barman was very amiable but knew nothing about beers and selected one for my partner seemingly randomly and without asking, luckily he enjoyed it. I suspect his Romanian origins influenced his manner but would like to see this improved next time. Nice chap though! 🙂 We weren't keen on the high sided booths I'm afraid as it meant we had far more room than necessary and couldn't see anything going on in the room. The food was nice though and the live music great.

We went early evening so it was rather quiet in the upstairs restaurant. Could have done with some low background music. The upstairs gin bar was brilliant and the barman was very knowledgeable and took time to talk to us about the different kinds of gin. I tried one that was rhubarb and ginger which was very nice. Unfortunately the live music did not start until 9.30pm, by which time we were heading back to our hotel. The tapas was a little disappointing and the menu range could do with being a little wider. All in all we really enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to others.
