About us

An imposing pub on Harrogate's much revered “Stray”, a parkland around part of the town centre. A tasteful fake Victorian interior. Beers generally come from the nearby Daleside brewery. A pool table occupies one end of the single large room, although there are two exterior doors off a common entrance. Reasonably priced food is available at the weekend.

Food was nice, generous portions. We landed on quiz night so was busy with a friendly atmosphere. My partner forgot his jacket with our keys in. Luckily one of the barstaff was very vigilant and chased after us to return it. Many thanks and we owe that lady a drink. We'll be back.

Lovely food for the price, nice little pub. Did get seated a bit awkwardly facing a wall in the path of the men's loo but it was still a nice meal for 2. Good music too compared to other places in Harrogate.

Food was brilliant. I had the lamb burger special and the wife had the empress burger. Chips were proper chips and not frozen ones. Burgers we juicy and cooked just right. Beers were also good and the atmosphere was excellent.

We stopped here for a Sunday carvery whilst out shopping. We were lucky enough to get a table as a walk in, all of the tables were reserved a number of times over the course of the day. The food was good but the price was a little on the high side. You are only limited on meat and Yorkshire puddings, the rest of the meal you just help yourself too. There was a nice relaxed atmosphere in the pub and a good selection of beverages on offer.
