QUICK AND PLEASANT SERVICE. I WAS NOT IN THE MAIN BAR AREA SO WE COULD HAVE A CONVERSATION BUT I NOTICED THAT THE BAR AREA WAS A LITTLE NOISY FOR ME.

Good food, service was poor. No gap between starter and main. As soon as starter was cleared within seconds the main arrived. Felt rushed.
Atmosphere poor due to loud drunks at the bar despite being only 8 pm. Their language was loud and offensive. We left rather than staying for pudding.

We stayed at the hotel for a random weekend away. We had DBB and really enjoyed it. My Duck was a little cold - but I guess thats easy when it is rare (the waitress did offer to sort but I declined) The food was lovely, but the drinks were usual hotel expensive!!

I made a notification of my citrus allergy before booking which the waiting staff said they didn't look at I had to remind them every time they brought something to the table for me with lemon in . They kindly brought some complementary beetroot soup of which I asked if it contains citrus as I reminded the same waiting staff of my allergy she said to be careful . They leaned across my guest to serve dishes when there was plenty of room around the table . Will not be recommending. Pity the food was delightful.

A lovely meal to celebrate a birthday. Delicious food well prepared and a good but not overwhelming choice. Excellent choice of wines - I think the West Park do this particularly well and can recommend the Pinot Noir. Service was attentive and friendly. Quiet on a Monday night but still enough people to make it welcoming.

Can't fault this restaurant. The cocktails make a great start - lots of unusual ones, as well as standards, all beautifully presented and delicious. The food doesn't disappoint either, with something to suit all tastes. Friendly and efficient service from knowledgeable staff tops off a great dining experience.

Myself and my fiancé were staying at the West Park Hotel for three nights, and ate dinner in the hotel's restaurant twice. The restaurant has a relaxed vibe with contemporary decor. Background music was just right, and not too loud to overpower conversation. The staff were so friendly and attentive - and efficient, which is important. One of us was celebrating a special birthday and it was a lovely touch to receive flutes of complimentary fizz. The two of us opted for a steak dish and a chicken one the first night - both were delicious and the food beautifully presented. The second night of dining we both chose the burger - neither of us were disappointed and the burger was tasty and well cooked, and came with a nice variety of accompaniments. We breakfasted in the restaurant every morning of our stay and there was a huge choice of hot dishes - which are cooked to order - and the normal fare of cereal, croissants, fresh fruit, toast etc. All delicious, and our breakfast set us up well for the day! Staff throughout were unfailingly pleasant and friendly, and helpful. We will definitely return next time we find ourselves in Harrogate!

Very average food and service. Much worse experience than our previous visits. Made to feel guilty by less-than-helpful staff when we had send various items back (terrible cocktails, cold steak) and had to chase up missing veg side order that eventually arrived when we’d almost finished our main courses - and when it came, it was a small, shallow creme brûlée-style dish with a very small portion of cabbage which was terrible value for money. Extremely disappointing and definitely won’t be rushing back.

What a fantastic evening! First, complements to the entire staff - from the Maitre D, to the bartenders, to the servers - everyone displayed excellent customer service and were the complete professionals. It is rare to find anywhere that has across the board good service without exception and that says so much about how a place is run. And our first request was not easy - we had a reservation for 4 after a day of transatlantic travel and our family from harrogate wanted to join us last minute - making our reservation for 9. The West Park accommodated is without issue and with a smile. We were grateful. The cocktails were excellent and the meal itself was wonderful - everyone enjoyed their dishes. Mezza share plate, fresh farmhouse bread. We loved the sea bass, duck, steak and the kids loved the burgers and sausages. Great meal, great decor/atmosphere and great night at the West Park. We will definitely be back!

I was the first to arrive from our group. I was asked to wait by the bar. I had a toddler with me and she was happy running up and down. Once others arrived I had to find someone to show us to our table.

We ordered our food. Two children’s meals and 4 Sunday roasts. I ordered the soup for my toddler. We had to ask at least 4 times for her soup and when it finally came, I had to ask for bread. By the time her food came we had given her bits of our food, so she no longer wanted it.

One of the roasts was cold. When it came back it was missing a Yorkshire pudding and we had to ask for it. The pork was meant to have crackling, but it was soft and not what was expected. The beef was tasty, but had a lot of fat.

We then decided to order puddings, however after waiting 20 minuets, the children were getting restless and we had to cancel the order.

The front of house were apologetic, and reduced the bill and gave a gift card for any future visit. I just think that they should have had better communication with the kitchen, rather than us having to ask multiple times for a child’s soup.

The food was superb and fairly priced for what it was. However, abhorrent service (being made to wait ten minutes for a table that was ready the whole time) seemed to put a dampener on the evening. I will be returning but would hope for better service next time.
