Hen do in Harrogate

We are planning a hen do in Harrogate and will be staying at the Hotel du Vin. We are looking for something to do on the Saturday day time. A trip to the Turkish baths is a potential but other ideas very much appreciated.

Yes, definitely Yorkshire's number one, it even says so on their web site, although I must admit my memories of the place tend to be somewhat sketchy.........

It is a good laugh though !

Although I was once a big fan of the Banyan Bar, I can no longer recommend it.

It was once a great place to be but that was when the place was new and they were aiming to please.

Sadly, they've stopped trying now and it's evident in the staff's indifference and declining standard of service.

During the last 3 visits, the food has gone downhill and the crockery has been dirty. When I explained to the waitress that our cups were dirty, she kindly replaced them, with some more dirty cups.

Matters weren't helped by the kitchen staff, who insisted on shouting orders and 'yes Chef! every two minutes.

Unfortunately, their culinary skills weren't quite up to Gordon Ramsay's standard and we ended up leaving half of the food, which had cost me £24.00

It's a shame but the Banyan bar seems to have gone the same way as the big restaurant chains, and personally I don't think indifferent staff, terrible service and poor food should be rewarded, so i won't be going back.
