Description: BED... Run and owned by a bike nut... Loves talking bikes and all things bike related and is as giddy as a kipper at the impending arrival of the 2014 Tour de France...Cant wait to meet you all :-) BED - which stands for Burnsey Eat Drink - is a superb and super-friendly restaurant on the Kings Road in Harrogate. Spread over three floors in a beautiful Georgian manor, BED has a bar on the ground floor and two separate dining rooms decorated in kooky colours. The cosy, unpretentious vibe and quirky sense of humour woven into the d��cor and the menu at BED makes this restaurant feel like a home away from home. All food is cooked fresh to order, and the restaurant boasts a selection of over 40 wines and Champagnes. We love the burgers; the lime seared scallops; and the lamb marinated in honey and mint served on a bed of crushed new potatoes.

“Vegetarian delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

An unplanned stumble into a gem of a restaurant. The food was amazing from start to finish with hearty tasty generous dishes of imaginative vegetarian fare. The non veggie food looked great too, we've always wondered why restaurants can only think of risotto as a veggie option, this place is different, it gives everyone a good choice. The service was so friendly and enthusiastic we will definitely be back.

“2 visits in one week, officially my favourite restaurant in Harrogate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Last night was our third time at B.e.d. after going just a week ago. We love it there! The owner Dave and the team really make you feel welcome, they all have a great sense of humour which transpires in the menu and everywhere in the the restaurant. The food is always excellent and not the type of food you see everywhere else. We went with a vegetarian friend of ours and he was pleasantly surprised by the vast choice of good vegetarian options. B.e.d. is my favourite restaurant in Harrogate and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

The bed as been recommended to me by different friends but this is the first time I have been
Staff very helpful and pleasant
Nice atmosphere
Good choice of food
Reasonably priced
A bit disappointed in Deseret a little expensive for what you get
And the curly whirly ice cream was a disappointing
But the free curly whirly at end of meal was a nice surprised

“Excellent Group Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

A group of us, 6 couples ate at BED last Saturday and we found the restaurant to be of the highest quality not only for food and drink, but also for the friendliness of the staff and the way we were looked after.

Burnsey (I think he is the Owner) made regular visits to ensure that we were being looked after and that everything was as we expected and the young lady who waited on our table gave fantastic service all night.

The price of the food and drink is what we would expect for a quality restaurant and this is definitely a quality restaurant.

If we return to Harrogate then we will be returning to Bed for our evening meal.

“Mmm? Quirky? Average!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Well. Not realy sure how rated so highly. Definitely quirky. Staff good but equally could be taken the wrong way. Food OK but probably a little overpriced for quality/quantity. For example 3 scallops for £8 seemed a bit steep.

Lots of "cheek" within the menu and the interaction but, if paying over £30 a head (without wine), I would expect better. Certainly not, in my mind, the place to take your better half. Just not that good.

On the plus side - great 80's music.

Hi there 007

Obviously shaken by your visit and sadly not stirred :-)

Sorry you didn't have as much fun as i would have liked you to have had.

Having just celebrated our 12th birthday we must be doing something right and our high ranking is due probably the nigh on 1000 reviews from folk who thought we we are good/excellent :-) but i appreciate we will never be everyone's cuppa tea :-)

We all work flippin' hard too, you and me, and it's not in my mind to rip folk off... i honestly believe we charge a fair price for freshly prepared, homemade food and remember we all have bills to pay and mouths to feed... however if you are ever back in town, please do get in touch and would love to shout you some nice wine and have a chat.

Thrilled you loved the music ;-)

Warmest regards

Dave x
