    We sat upstairs for food which was great. Could hear the music but could still chat. The food was absolutely beautiful and a great price too. We had the glazed sausages, beef wrap, onion bhaji, belly pork, all of it was presented beautifully and tasted just as good. Staff were lovely too. Then we went downstairs to enjoy the live music. A fab little gem this place is. Have recommended to everyone!

    Visited on a Wednesday evening, lovely old building, dined up stairs, loved the booth style seating. Music was just at the right level to be able to converse but also enjoy the tunes. We could hear the live artist, who came on about 9pm, quite clearly even though we were upstairs. The bar area was quite busy when we left but a really good vibe going on. The food WOW! tapas like no other it was absolutely delicious, so many tastes. We had 4 small plates and 3 bigger ones and felt quite sated afterwards. I had a cheesecake for dessert - best one ever - it tasted like proper cheesecake. Great selection of craft beers. The service was attentive and the wait for the food was very acceptable as all the food was cooked to order. Highly recommend for a chilled evening with great food.

    Such a great venue, old school pub vibes. Visiting the area and thoroughly enjoyed this bar. Very friendly bar staff and the food was beyond tasty, like all the best bits of a roast put into tapas. I ate in the upstairs dining room which was very chilled and relaxed, then watched the live music downstairs. Great atmosphere enjoyed by regulars and visitors like myself. Live music on the night was enjoyable too. Only issue is the venue is too small, when I tried to return for the second time on a Friday for the live band, it was full and I couldn’t get in haha. I will return in the future and get there early!

    I thoroughly recommend this bar. The Tapas are tremendous, extremely tasty and reasonably priced for the size of portions. Service was also very good bin the upstairs restaurant. The music and dancing was relayed up to the restaurant via a big screen which added to the experience. Will definitely be coming back when we visit Harrogate again!

    Our very first trip to Harrogate and fancied trying Yapas, which is Yorkshire for tapas, and booked the Blues bar as we liked the idea of live music as well. The food was stunning, the music was great and the place was buzzing. If you like decent food, a place with atmosphere and a great evening out you need to go here. Nuff said I feel 😁

    Our food was fantastic! Unfortunately our waitress didn’t leave us feeling welcomed. We initially sat at the wrong table and so was told to move after a couple of minutes… fine. We ended up sat at a window seat which we initially didn’t prefer, however it turned out to be lovely. We ordered 5 small plates. The first 3 came followed by the last two 4-5 minutes later, which by that time meant that the first lot was cold. I appreciate the kitchen is downstairs and with one waitress it’s not always possible to get everything out at the same time, but there was no apology. After settling the bill which included a 10% tip, we were finishing our drinks and were told to ‘finish our drinks downstairs because they had a full restaurant’. This is completely understandable with it being such a small area but there was no pleases, no smiles, and it all felt very cold and abrupt. I’m not sure if it was a bad/stressful shift but it definitely impacted our experience which is such a shame. I would recommend the restaurant to others for the food, but would suggest sitting downstairs in the bar in the hopes of a warmer reception from the waitress/staff.

    I booked a table for the Friday 15th 7.30 for 4 people but when we went to the restaurant they had no booking! They were fully booked and turned us away. Absolutely appalling!!!! Will not book through open table again or attend that restaurant!! Very little apology from the restaurant! Awful experience!

    Unfortunately despite having reserved a table and confirmed it the restaurant decided to accommodate others which meant our table was not available and would not be for some time. Very poor service to regular customers and we ate elsewhere

    Booked for a Saturday night at 7pm , busy in bar downstairs, the menu is fairly small we ordered 7 dishes and everyone was fantastic, the curry was one of the best I’ve had . We ended up staying all night and listening to the music downstairs and having cocktails after our meal , really a little hidden gem of a restaurant

    The food was nice and we went for 6 things as recommended which apparently is ample for 2 people. Food comes as and when it’s ready and we found ourself waiting for the next bit of food for some time. What came out wasn’t enough for 2 people and we did leave hungry. Yes we could have ordered more however it was an expensive tapas and didn’t feel it was value for money. The room is very dark and could do with a bit more lighting upstairs. The waitress for very pleasant.

    Throughly enjoyed our first time at Yorkshire tapas - every dish was delicious - particularly enjoyed the chips in beef dripping and spicy slaw. Only disappointment was a slight lack of attention after the food had arrived and having to go and ask for a further drink. May have ordered more if been attended to earlier. Great night out and great value for money overall

    Great location and good, fresh and flavoursome food. Service was a little off as we didn’t get the bread and olives we’d order to start. Instead they arrived halfway through our meal. The portions sizes were as you would expect from a tapas menu.

    Our philosophy is simple: <br />* Keep it FRESH! <br />* Keep it LOCAL! <br />* Keep it YORKSHIRE! <br />We eat, sleep and breathe YORKSHIRE, cut us with a knife and we bleed gravy. <br />(unfortunately it’s too thick to use in our cooking).<br /><br />“A truly Yorkshire experience bringing you fresh, local ingredients from top quality producers”
