We can’t speak of what the menu will offer in the months to come, but at the time of writing The Harrogate Brasserie Hotel summer menu consisted of starters like smoked mackerel pate with horseradish cream and pickled cucumber, as well as deep fried brie.

I booked a table for 2 on a Friday night for my husbands birthday on line. We visited the day before and selected a table overlooking the music area. On the night we had a 3 piece jazz band playing in the background which gave a very relaxed atmosphere. We both ordered starters, duck salad and prawn cocktail, both were very tasty and just enough. For mains we had the salmon fillet and chicken breast both delicious. We had the bottle of Prosecco on Friday night offer and several reasonably priced Leffes. Chocolate based desserts followed and then the cheeseboard which finished off a wonderful meal We usually eat 2 courses when dining out, as this is sufficient, but what made this evening so special was we were there for 3 hours as the portion sizes meant we could manage more and it made it a special ocassion. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and when we asked for the bill were very surprised it had worked out very reasonably. We will return on our next visit to Harrogate which is always during the Tour of Yorkshire and strongly recommend this venue
We enjoyed our tasty food very much, we’re certainly going to return again another day. We loved the live jazz; it made it a lovely atmosphere
We had the set menu which was two courses for £14.95. Food was great value and really nice! We sat outside on a sunny day which was lovely and the staff were really friendly
Had a good evening in this quirky restaurant with a lovely feel to it and great live music that was played at an acceptable so that we could still talk over it. The mains were delicious and we were all very pleased. Dessert was a mixed bag. The Bakewell tart was delicious and almost like bakewell pudding. However, the sticky toffee pud sauce was more toffee than sticky. So that was replaced with another Bakewell tart that had sour creme Anglais and a rotten strawberry!! Very odd as the one served 5 minutes earlier was fine! Waiting staff weren’t very apologetic and had to complain again when we paid for the bill. Howver, overall a great evening!
we were made welcome on arrival the food was very good and the price was right the atmosphere perfect we have been before and will be back again I had 4 friends with me and they loved it also and when we left we thanked all the staff for a wonderful evening thank you once again I have told all my friends to when in Harrogate to call in they wont be let down I was just telling people to day how good it was once again thank you
The food was very nice. Deep fried brie was a touch bland. The mains steak was well cooked and the accompaniments were well balanced. The service was very good. Only negative observation was the volume of the live music. The sax was incredibly loud as we were positioned directly next to it. Would suggest addressing this. The music in itself was inoffensive, if again a bit dated. Did it add anything to the evening, over what a CD would have given, then the answer is no and the could have accommodated another table in that space. All in all good value.
Went for the first time yesterday - it definitely won't be the last! In fact, we took a leaflet for the rooms to stay next time. The food was fabulous, delicious menu, very hard to choose what to have. The service was second to none. Everyone was friendly and nothing was rushed at all despite the restaurant being incredibly busy. All for a very reasonable price ; thank you Harrogate Brasserie!
We visited the Harrogate Brasserie on 2nd February, it had only re-opened that night after refurbishment. It's the second time we have eaten there and it didn't disappoint. We chose from the 2 course set price menu and the food was excellent, everything was freshly cooked and well presented. We will definitely go back again and would highly recommend the restaurant.
Lovely restaurant, great friendly staff. Food delicious and a live band to keep you entertained while dining. You couldn’t ask for more. Just one think to consider if you don’t want the musics too loud ask for a table in the room to the left, as you can still hear the music but you can still talk. The Harrogate Brassiere is definitely worth a visit.
