Arrived on time for our booked table to be informed 15mins later that we would have to wait as the people at our reserved table were not ready to move. This went on for an hour, however Staff did provide a free drink. Eventually we sat down and was informed our food was on its way, so I ordered fresh drinks, food came 5 minutes later then drinks 25 minutes later not good,hence poor review

Fabulous place to eat and be entertained. Really cosy dining upstairs and the service was exceptional. Our tapas was delicious with a lovely bottle of red. Great menu to choose from. The guy who was serving us informed us that it was filling up downstairs and took us down to the last table so we could spend the rest of the evening enjoying the open mic night which was a great night. A must go to when in Harrogate 😁

We really enjoyed it, our son and some friends had been and recommended it to us. Our Yorkshire pudding was burnt otherwise I’d have given the food 5 stars.
Great waiter we had and I personalise listening to the music as long as it’s not too heavy or loud. Thoughly enjoyed our evening.

We booked for 7.30pm but prior to our visit we were contacted to see if we could come in early as they were fully booked from 8.30pm. We arrived at 7.00pm and got a snug booth with a window view. The service was excellent and the food was to die for. It was hot and plentiful and we had four of the tapas dishes. I cannot emphasise how amazing the food was and the service. Unfortunately we were virtually kicked out as they needed the table and we kind of got rushed in getting out of the booth. Other than that, an excellent place to go and eat.

This was the best choice. A fantastic venue. Lively downstairs at the bar . But lovely and quiet in the restaurant.
The food was outstanding quality and excellent value for money. I would not hesitate to book here again.
The staff were attentive and looked after us really well. 10/10.

The first thing to mention was the almost total absence of Covid-19 precautions and this in a very busy bar/restaurant. Not a great experience to begin with and made worse by very slow service. The food, however, was excellent and extremely imaginative.

This was certainly a new event for an older couple like ourselves not familiar with the Tapas experience. I was influenced to book because of the Trip Advisor excellent reviews.
We were certainly not disappointed in any way. The waiter was helpful suggesting we order 5 items and that was ideal for us. There is a good variety on the menu for all tastes. We particularly enjoyed the belly pork and the Yorkshire Wraps.
There was a good atmosphere and cosy seating .

The food was amazing, each tapas dish was melt in the mouth. The staff were friendly and the restaurant is quirky. Quite loud music however we enjoyed the ambience. We will definitely go again when next in Harrogate. Make sure you pre-book as it was busy when we were there.

I have loved the Blues Bar for years and this is the first time I've eaten there. It was truly gorgeous and we had the best table too!

I will be going back, this certainly isn't one to miss.

Excellent quality food and a great ‘Yorkshire’ take on traditional tapas with some very mouth watering dishes to tempt.

Two of us shared four tapas and two sides washed down with a very generous glass of red each. Filled us up with a burst of flavours

Really interesting experience - and there must be some form of twisted genius who decided to blend yorkshire favourites with Tapas. The Pork belly was fantastic but other dishes were a bit hit and miss - but who cares, they are small plates and reasonably priced. Try it, you might like it. It was a shame that due to Covid there was no music but that was beyond their conrol

Didn’t actually eat here as, although they acknowledged we’d booked, they were full as previous customers hadn’t left. Quite pleased in the end as there were no signs of any social distancing or attempts to enforce it. Place was rammed and customers and staff were behaving as if it was pre-COVID-19. Avoid!
