Couldn't take our grandaughter into the bar but found the more modern lounge comfortable and seasonal with a log burning stove. Good and well cooked lunch served well. Try the mulled wine. its excellent. Even had Christmas smells. Best pub in Harrogate

Traditional bar, olde worlde place like stepping back in time. Lovely surroundings, warm log burner, lovely atmosphere, one little tip there's a bell on the right hand side of the bar to press when you need serving and the staff are in the other bar. They serve the most delicious mulled wine, just what you need in December! Ask them... More
