Brilliant little place with friendly staff and a great selection of liquid. I requested a taster prior to purchase, which was declined, luckily the beer was excellent :)

Great cosy bar
Aug 2021 • Business
Fantastic little cosy bar with small seating area on the front and back.

Great selection of different micro brewery beers and the staff are always helpful in guiding you onto a superb pint. All the beers are well kept and presented.

Little by name but big by nature

We were given this place as a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint.
We had visited Harrogate over night and called in just literally before last orders (that is our only regret that we didn’t go earlier in the evening)

Walked in, welcomed by friendly staff who really knew about each and every beer.

Took our seats in the window and instantly thought wow, what a great place.
Gutted we only had one drink there but definitely worth it

Everything was going great - until it all fell apart
Jul 2021
Great selection of real ales and gins combined with knowledgeable staff.
I was surprised they didn't have lemonade to make a shandy, or bitter lemon to make a spritzer for my wife, who isn't into real ale.
Apart from that, everything was wonderful until I was undecided which ale to try for my third pint.
I usually like darker ales, and I had already had the stout which, as described, was very chocolatey (perhaps too much so) and the bitter. I was a bit concerned that the light ale, which was described as citrus, might be also too much so, so I asked for a wee taste, only to be met with an abject refusal.
Up to that point, my experience had been very friendly, but the staff were adamant that there would be no tasting.
This completely soured the experience for me, to the extent that I didn't buy another pint, and left as soon as my companions had finished their drinks.
Sadly, I will not be back.

We were engaged here Spring 2019 and got married June 2021.
We came here for a pre restaurant drink. Tasty and different ales.
My new husband 😄 in element.
Service friendly and very quick. Thank you

An absolute gem
May 2021 • Friends
What a little gem. Was recommended this place when visiting Harrogate and every positive thing about it was true. A great variety of well kept beers and welcoming and knowledgeable staff is a winning combination. The place was Covid compliant but in a friendly and welcoming way and it is easy to see why it was always busy. I would say if you go to Harrogate and like good local beer this is a must visit place. Ticks all the boxes and they even recommended us a fabulous little Indian restaurant.

Lovely to visit this lovely pub once again. Staff are super friendly, beer is distinctive and varied. Small beer gardens to front and back. Worth a visit.
