Our Favourite Places to Dine and Drink in Harrogate


The HFW team have chosen their favourite places to eat and drink in Harrogate. Why not book in for your after-show dinner?


Sarah – The Orchid

“I adore the Thai food at The Orchid, it is a must visit when you’re in Harrogate”

Harrogate’s best Pan-Asian restaurant serving dishes influenced by true oriental flavours within the Pacific rim in a modern style.
(Closed on Monday)

Wendy – William & Victoria

“It has to be William & Victoria for me. Their menu is delicious and is the perfect setting to relax after a busy day at the show”

William & Victoria is one of the trusted Harrogate independent restaurants and offers a warm welcoming wine bar and bistro-style dining downstairs with a staircase leading to the more spacious bar and restaurant upstairs. We can cater for private business lunches and dinners and special events in our private dining room.


Kirsty – The Ivy

“I love to sit in the window at The Ivy and watch the world go by. Delicious food and beautiful surroundings”

The Ivy Harrogate Brasserie brings relaxed, sophisticated all-day dining to the heart of this vibrant spa town. From modern British cuisine to brasserie-inspired classics and fantastic vegan and vegetarian dishes, there’s something for everyone to love.


Helen – Bettys Tea Room

“Betty’s is the classic choice while you are in Harrogate and you simply cannot beat it. I always have to come away with a little box of goodies”

Much has changed since 1919 but at least two things remain the same: our treats are just as delicious and our welcome is just as warm.


Gill – Pranzo

“Authentic Italian food and wine – what more could you ask for? Definitely my favourite place to eat in Harrogate”

Pranzo offers a modern pasta menu which is made fresh on-site every day using the finest locally-sourced ingredient accompanied by fine aperitivo and wines from around the world.



Somewhere for a cheeky drink – Cold Bath Brewing Co

The ideal place to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink with friends, only five minutes from the exhibition centre.

This is where the HFW Sunday night party will be held, for more information please call 01423 623701

Refined and balanced session beers that are refreshing but not overbearing. Selecting the highest quality hops and malt available combined with soft Yorkshire water. We never compromise on quality and create premium beers of distinction.
