What has happened to this place?

Well after a long walk, headed into the arms for lunch, went in and then had to run out again as i thought id mistakenly entered a nursing home. The decor is strange and just like somewhere you would wait to die. Quite odd actually. Decided to have the carvery, the meat was lovely, plenty of it... read more

Such a shame, food is terrible, there is no ambience or atmosphere and it appears an uncaring attitude. A real let down and what used to be a twice weekly visit is now turned into a "never again" scenario

Went for a meal and it's one of those where you wished you hadn't . No fault with the young lady behind then bar other than she could have shown a bit more enthusiasm. Bar wasn't busy, we picked a table and placed our order. So, Prawn Cocktail for one and Hoisin Duck for the other. The Prawn Cocktail was... More

Just moved to the area and was recommended this pub, in a superb location. Disappointed to find it closed. However reading previous reviews here, it seems clear that the poor service following a change of ownership is to blame - nothing to do with the two reviews here saying it smelled of dog!

In January last year (2013) The Harrogate Arms was a thriving, busy country pub that was dog friendly. For some years I visited regularly and enjoyed good food and a roaring fire in the winter. Then, for some reason picky, non-dog people, started leaving negative, snide reviews and comments about the place on Trip Advisor. The effects were slow but... More

My partner and I had booked to stay at this 'hotel' on 11th May. On arriving we found the place locked up and to be honest, it looked as if it had closed down. Eventually a member of staff appeared and we were told they didn't have room for us that night. We were shown into what looked like a... More

We went to the Harrogate Arms for a sunday lunch with my parents and our children. The staff were friendly, the carvery was very good, the deserts were both cheap and good, and the whole experience was very enjoyable. We've eaten there on several occasions since it came under the current management, and the experience has been consistently good.
