About the restaurant
Located in a listed building above a Victorian train tunnel on Knaresborough’s High Street, Carriages is a restaurant and wine bar serving supreme British and European cuisine (plus a selection of pan-Asian bites) alongside a peerless selection of fine wine and ales, best enjoyed in the beer garden. Drawing regular patrons from Harrogate and across North Yorkshire, dining (or simply enjoying a drink) at Carriages promises to be an intimate, cosy affair.
Carriages is well-known among Knaresborough locals for its great range of wine and beer. The beer garden itself attracts a horde of hopheads to Carriage’s High Street premises on summery days, but no matter the weather, dining in the restaurant’s cosy interior is a treat not to be missed. Carriages’ commitment to sourcing local produce has led this modern British and European restaurant to forge strong links with suppliers like the Yorkshire Dales Meat Company and Ramus Seafood Emporium, resulting in seasonal menus that have Harrogate and Yorkshire’s foodies lining up for a booking.
It’s not all British classics and European gourmet dishes on the menu, though. Carriages also like to introduce a little fusion to proceedings with its range of pan-Asian dishes. A popular feature on the menu is the list of Spanish tapas, small plates that the culinarily-inclined know are the perfect accompaniment to a carefully chosen wine or sherry. Highlights include the grilled asparagus with shaved Manchego cheese, charred squid with black rice and bagna cauda, and the confit duck with poached pears and almonds. A landmark in beautiful Knaresborough, it’s not only locals to the Harrogate region knocking on the door – be sure to book in advance for a great meal at this intimate restaurant.
