We went in the summer so we sat outside which was really pleasant. The food was really the best I've had in Harrogate. The service was also excellent. Just waiting for it to reopen after undergoing refurbishment. Can't wait.

We stopped off here for a bite to eat, food was nice and didn't take long to arrive once we placed our order. The atmosphere was good and enjoyed a drink relaxing after we had finished eating.

Finally made it to a Square Bar & Restaurant wine club dinner and had a fantastic evening of matching food and wine. The entertainment came from the wine merchant who managed to mix an informative presentation of 5 wines with unassuming humour. Usually I lapse...More

I booked this restaurant as you could use a taste card there I almost felt embarrassed using it! The service was very good, friendly but not over the top and the waiter did look a bit like Daniel Craig which added a topic of conversation...More

Ok for lunch if you go for one of the sharing platters but I wouldn't bother for an evening meal. The service wasn't great and the food was very average, was disappointed.More
