Description: An independent family run restaurant and wine bar serving traditional British food in the heart of Harrogate. William & Victoria has developed a reputation for great food served in a relaxed and unfussy style. Hearty Yorkshire portions of locally sourced meat and fish served in a cosy wine bar/bistro that oozes character and personality with a buzz created by it's popularity with locals that you will find any day of the week. The wine bar is open all afternoon serving a variety of drinks along with bar tapas. Owner and front of house, David Straker, is at the 'helm' most evenings and on hand to recommend wines from an extensive and well balanced wine list. More spacious dining areas with seating for 50 people, along with another well stocked bar, is situated upstairs along with a private dining room ideal for business entertaining and private parties. William & Victoria host a variety of regular wine tasting dinners. William & Victoria has recently gone through an extensive sympathetic refurbishment.

Thank you for the review. As you are probably now aware, we don't normally accept hen night bookings after previous bad experiences, however this one slipped the net! Thank you for being well behaved and I'm pleased you enjoyed your evening with us.

“Yum yum!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I only ate in the wine bar, but I understand the menu for thw wine bar and the restaurant are pretty similar. In short, this an excellent place to meet, eat and drink.

Plenty of youngsters about and I knew a couple both in their 90s who were regulars.

The service was excellent and the ambience very pleasant. Food was very good; one of my starters (devilled kidneys was superb - the best ever!).

The choice of beers, lagers and wines was extensive. Very much a brief review, but the place gets 9 out 10 from me - why 'only' 9? Well, come on, Harrogate is north of Watford!

Thank you for the review of the wine bar. The devilled lambs' kidneys are very popular as is our slow roast lamb Henry. We hope you will visit us again!
