We started our Food Tour of Harrogate here with having the Eggs Florentine and it was delicious. Will definitely be back next time we are in Harrogate.

Used to really like it here and come regularly. A couple of poor meals(which I could let go as the range and selection of beer is great) and the rudeness of one particular barman(tall-luke?) has put me off. Consistent bad vibes, zero welcome and just...generallg talking to customers with little respect. Would rather spend money and time in other bars where you are treated decently, not many in town have as good a selction of beers but there are a few(North, Major Tom's, little ale house, roosters tap...). I don't expect a reply off the manager, but they should know as it's letting the place down. There's an art to being a good bar man, and being able to list numerous breweries and beers is far from the be-all and end-all.More

Visited with a friend for brunch. Friendly welcoming relaxed atmosphere. Service was great, prompt without being pushy. Food was good quality, well presented and generous. The coffee at this place is something else and worth a visit just for the coffee!

We found this lovely little place whilst staying nearby at a large hotel. We decided not to book breakfast at the hotel and venture out to find a small independent place to enjoy instead. A friendly welcome, a lovely menu choice, and served a delicious...breakfast and drinks. Would definitely return if we are in the area again.More

It’s honestly class here. Nice vibe, good food and the staff are lovely. Anyone who says otherwise is probably a bit miserable anyway.

In Harrogate overnight and ate at Starling Cafe for breakfast after passing by the night before. Fab food with a great choice on the menu. Stylish decor and very comfortable but what stood out the most was the friendly and accommodating staff. Dan (we think!)...and a young lady were so lovely (Monday morning too! 😁) We shall be back when in Harrogate again.More
