About The Grantley Bar and Restaurant - Grantley Ripon North Yorkshire

The great British country pub is an institution, and in North Yorkshire, the tradition is being kept alive by The Grantley Arms in its namesake village of Grantley, in a beautiful Harrogate spot not too far from Ripon. Located in a 17th-century building and close to Fountains Abbey and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, they are the perfect place to stop off after a ramble for a Sunday lunch, or to drop in for a lunch on your way though. Book a table in either the bar or the restaurant for a classically British meal.

Further Information

If you were trying to place a British country pub, you couldn’t do much better than the location that they have at The Grantley Arms in High Grantley (there’s a Low Grantley, too). Located a short drive to the west of Ripon and to the north of Harrogate, this bar and restaurant is situated inside the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a few minutes drive from the medieval Fountains Abbey. Their building in itself is something of a landmark – it dates from the 1600s – and their menu is based around the dishes that have made British pubs and bars into dining destinations in recent years.

The menu, too, takes advantage of their location in the North Yorkshire moors around Ripon and Harrogate. Local ingredients are used wherever possible: fish comes from Hartlepool, the beer in the beer-battered fish and chips is from Yorkshire, and the cheese boards are filled with offerings from Thirsk and Wensleydale. The menus change daily, and their Sunday lunch options are everything you would expect from a British pub – as is the bar selection, which features plenty of real ales. Book a table now at The Grantley Arms in High Grantley for a quintessentially Yorkshire experience.

Beautiful food, superbly cooked. Eric was welcoming and friendly. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. We'll definitely look at returning here if we're in the area.

The food, staff and ambience at the Grantley was excellent in every respect. The quantity of the portions would probably not be acceptable to a lot of people, but for me the quality, how well food is cooked and served by pleasant staff is more important. Also my evening was made more pleasant by there being no background music.

Excellent food and service. Good choice on menu. Cost was mid range, but restraint was full of returning customers. Not much choice of beers, but a good selection of wines.

Excellent food and top service. Charming staff. We chose a quiet time but that did not distract from our experience of freshly cooked and prepared dining.

We visited The Grantley Arms for Sunday lunch. We were warmly welcomed; and the food was delicious. We popped back later in the week for their take-away fish and chips - also v. good.

This is a little gem. Excellent quality food beautifully served. A really charming meal experience that you will enjoy. Quality home made food served by attentive staff. Don't be in a hurry, take time out with friends or family and enjoy an unhurried and relaxing meal. We will be going agin despite being about 1 hour from home.

Good food with well-judged portion sizes. Good service except that jugs of water would ideally be provided on the tables as standard (I had to ask twice and then got a glass not a jug). I am 65 and I guess I was the youngest person there at lunchtime (staff included), so if you are youthful and hoping for a more informal offering you may prefer a different venue.

We booked for a lunch early on Saturday on the back of recommendations of locals, because we were unfamiliar with the area. It was well frequented, attentive staff, good choice of beers, specials and set menu options. Portions were generous and the food well prepared. I liked both my choices, the scotch egg and fish pie. Too full for a desert.

Today we visited The Grantley Arms again and had an excellent meal - as usual. The food was really good and beautifully prepared and the service was warm and friendly. And one of my favourite wines by the glass - a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

We had an excellent meal in very pleasant surroundings well worth the effort in very poor weather as the restaurant is surrounded by beautiful countryside even at this time of year. Very good chef supported by very attentive and pleasant staff

Our first visit to the Grantley, and it won't be our last, we found the ambience to our liking, and the food was excellent, I had the King scollops, and smoked haddock in a lovely source for starters which if you like fish/seafood I would highly recommend

Fabulous food & service from friendly professional staff. Just a wonderful experience so different from most Restaurants perhaps it's down to the owners Eric & Val who add that extra personal touch to the occasion.

Excellent food, a great atmosphere and very friendly service. There is good choice and the portion sizes are very generous. We couldn't have had a more convivial evening. Would recommend the landlord's guest ales.

The Lunch was excellent and most enjoyable. It was very busy, the greeting was somewhat brusque and service was tardy. However we really enjoyed the occasion and will certainly return.

Food reasonable, however, service poor bearing in mind our table was booked in advance and we were expecting. Given that there was only one waitress attempted to look after at least 20 dining customers by herself, she managed very well. But, be prepared to wait a long time!
