Absolutely exceeded my expectations! Have been on a number of times and always very good but his was excellent. The new guy front of house delivered outstanding service - tick! The 'Hare' special was simply divine though, I love the 'standard menu, however, I always seem to find myself compelled to the specials - is this because they aren't regurgitating... More

Had a great meal on Saturday night. Food was excellent and very tasty. Service was spot on, very attentive without being over the top and was very knowledgeable on the dishes and products. Second visit and was much better. Lovely ambience and a place well worth visiting if in Harrogate.

Stumbled across this bistro and so glad we did. Lovely warm welcome and attentive hospitality. The menu is lovely with lots to choose from. You were also able to combine dishes to taste. Id really recommend the fish. Great wine list too. Nice ambience. Would recommend and will definitely visit again when in Harrogate.

Another one of those places we've known about for years but never visited. And I only wish we had done so sooner. We were welcomed by name, as if expected rather than having to confirm a reservation and that alone makes service more personal. While tasteful, the decor is perhaps not reflective of a fine dining restaurant, but then again... More

We had Lunch today, I had a Yorkshire Hare Ragu and my partner had Duck. Very tasty and well presented. Nice wine and beer menu. The service was excellent and very professional. To top it off the price is very reasonable. Thanks!

Charming waiter/FOH, lovely food, reasonable prices. This is the perfect place for a quiet meal a deux. Or it was the Thursday night we were there! Would go again if I didn't live 200 miles away.

Visited Harrogate on Bank Holiday Monday and as we passed by, the lovely sunny courtyard drew us in for lunch. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately I did not get the name of the gentleman that served us, but he was very welcoming, knowledgable and pleasantly helpful - what an asset to the place. We both opted for the salmon fishcakes... More
