The Best Restaurants in Harrogate

The area's medicinal spa has long attracted visitors to mediaeval Harrogate. The Royal Horticultural Society's Harlow Carr Gardens, as well as the many outstanding boutiques and restaurants in Harrogate, are now attracting tourists in addition to the waters.

Harrogate restaurants provide a diverse mix of chain and independent establishments. Harrogate is the premier shopping and dining destination in Yorkshire.

The Pine Marten, just outside Harrogate, offers a friendly rural welcome. This tavern and restaurant is located in a beautiful historic rural mansion. Look for sophisticated British favourites with Mediterranean elements on the menu. A large assortment of grilled pizzas, grill meats, and pasta dishes like tiger prawn and chorizo linguine are among the delectable options.

Sasso, in central Harrogate, serves authentic Italian cuisine. This Mediterranean masterpiece is only a few minutes' walk from Harrogate train station and offers a variety of delectable dishes ranging from slow-roasted lamb shank to panna cotta with cantuccini crème Anglaise. Sasso's wine and champagne list is wide to match its cuisine.

Solita Foodhall

One of Harrogate's newest attractions, Solita Foodhall, is located on Parliament Street and features a beautiful roof terrace with views of the Ginnel and the town roofs. It does have exterior heaters, which is a nice addition, but it's still April, so I'd wrap up - it's always better to be prepared.

The restaurant, which has locations in Manchester, Didsbury, York, Hull, and Beverley, is recognised for its premium Wagyu burgers and creative interpretations of classic BBQ dishes.

There's also a diverse selection of appetisers and sides, from halloumi fries and cheeseburger spring rolls (I know, it seems strange, but trust me, these are a must-try) to Challah fries.

Orchid Restaurant

Orchid Restaurant's food is greatly influenced by real oriental flavours in a contemporary approach. This unique atmosphere has been recreated not only through the food, but also through the mango and dark wood furnishings, which are separated by Japanese lattice type screens. Kenneth Poon, former Michelin Head Chef of the Dorchester Hotel, is in charge of the brigade.

For many years, The Orchid has been associated with high-quality pan-Asian cuisine and attentive service. Why wait? Come in and have a good time...

Three's a Crowd

A modern gastropub serving high-quality British cuisine in a comfortable setting, prepared with the freshest ingredients available. We're the ideal spot to dine with friends and family (and pets!) thanks to our ever-changing menu and hand-selected wine list.

Consider sweet-and-sour braised pork cheeks or Korean fried chicken with sesame and spring onions. The menu is updated on a daily basis, so there is always something fresh to taste, and their Sunday roasts are legendary. Local and craft beers, hand-picked wines, and delectably innovative cocktails are among the drinks available at the pub. 

The Ivy

The Ivy Harrogate is an all-day restaurant serving modern British and foreign Ivy-inspired classics from dawn to sunset, seven days a week, on central Parliament Street in the heart of the popular spa town. Just a short distance from the Montpellier Quarter shops and Turkish baths, the restaurant will offer a calm, relaxed, yet refined dining experience.

Allow The Ivy to infiltrate your daily routine. If you want to catch up with a friend or family member, stop by. You'll be greeted by a kind face when you arrive at The Ivy. Then it's time to let your hair down and have some serious fun, complete with delectable cuisine and cocktails.

Catch Seafood

The award-winning restaurant business has reopened Catch Seafood, formerly known as Graveley's of Harrogate, following a £250k restoration.

In comparison to its past life as Graveley's, the restaurant is unrecognisable. Who doesn't like a greenery wall, pristine white tile, and an outside terrace for those warm summer evenings?

The restaurant also features a fresh new Champagne and Oyster bar, which serves Laurent-Perrier and four different oyster kinds. Diners can order a range of seafood dishes in the restaurant, ranging from basic fish and chips to the Catch specialty seafood grill. The beverages menu is wide, with a variety of draught beers, cocktails, and wine available at the new bar.


Since 1919, Bettys Harrogate has served afternoon teas and a blend of British and Swiss cuisine. The original Bettys Café, the restaurant looks out over The Stray's beautiful sceneries.

Betty Harrogate's afternoon teas feature a delectable array of sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and teas. Treat yourself to a traditional cream tea with scones and Yorkshire clotted cream, a champagne afternoon tea, or a decadent cake cart.

The Bettys menu has bacon and raclette rosti and Swiss alpine macaroni alongside classics like fish and chips and slow-cooked meat pie, combining the hearty influences of Swiss and Yorkshire cuisines. Butternut squash tortelloni in sa
