The Yorkshire Hotel & Scran Restaurant Harrogate Review

The Yorkshire Hotel & Scran Restaurant Harrogate Review: March 2020

The Yorkshire Hotel right in the heart of Harrogate is the perfect place for leisure and business ideal for family, couples and business trips.

From the moment you walk in you are warmly welcomed in true Yorkshire fashion.

Loved our accommodations including the fully stocked tea tray with these fabulous Yorkshire Lass and Yorkshire Lad mugs.

The Yorkshire theme is subtle with the addition of lovely Yorkshire wall prints.

A spacious room with a super snug bed with cosy cushions and the perfect place to lay your head after exploring Harrogate.

The lounge area with flat screen television is the ideal place to chill out and with windows giving a Harrogate view feel free to people watch.

The information screen on the television provided a perfect what to do guide while in Harrogate – a cracking idea to give guests ideas of how to spend their time.

There is a contemporary bathroom with huge rainfall shower, a cool waterfall style sink tap and complimentary Harrogate toiletries.

Make sure you get yourself down to their onsite restaurant Scran.  Lovely Chris, Chloe and all the team will make sure you have a more than reight time.

Scran provides a relaxed atmosphere in cool, cosy and comfortable surroundings.

My plus one loved his steak dish, but I say go with the flow and the main ethos of the restaurant and opt for small plates.  After all they say sharing is caring.  Equally impressive is the team’s ability to deal with allergies and dietary’s without faff or fuss.

Fantastic, fabulous food innovative, interesting and enticing to the palate.  The Moroccan chick pea based stew with grilled pitta and Indian spiced falafel are both delicious.

My fav’s the Tacoliflower – a super sensationally scrummy tandoori spiced cauliflower bhargis with pickled red onion and mint yogurt are insane! By the end of the evening, the staff probably got sick of me banging on about these all evening, they are that good!

Desserts included a vegan brownie and mallow sundae and this cute Yorkshire Scran Signature Pud, served in traditional tin, with banoffee trifle, sticky toffee sponge and pecan nut brittle.

All washed down with a range of marvellous mocktails and some classic IPAs.

Breakfast is served with a side of Harrogate, as you have the most amazing Harrogate view.

Chef Wayne, server Simon and all the breakfast team are pleasant, personable and started our morning off well.

Offerings include a huge breakfast buffet with a range of hot and continental.

Enjoy fresh fruit, pastries, a range of cereals, porridge, juices, tea and coffee.

Obviously, a hot Yorkshire breakfast was enjoyed and my fav avocado on toast.

The Yorkshire is literally smack bang in the middle of town with Bettys Tea Rooms, Harrogate International centre and the War Memorial right on your doorstep, so plenty to see and do.

Once you have worked up an appetite head back to Scran for their Sunday Lunch.  Loved the news paper style menus and the offerings are spot on and just what Sundays are about.

Starters included the gypsy eggs dish with pan fried chorizo, serrano ham, tomato and baked egg with granary toast.  Myself, I could not resist going for the tasty Tacoliflower dish – yummy.

Mains included a variety of dishes such as a delicious chick pea curry and a range of roasts such as the rump of beef served with duck fat roasties, carrot & swede mash, cauliflower cheese, greens, Yorkshire pudding & their amazing gravy.

Desserts included a classic sticky toffee pudding with lashings of toffee sauce and this amazing chocolate and raspberry Vegan sorbet dish.

The Yorkshire, amazing accommodations, fabulous food and an even warmer welcome.

Thank you for reading 😊

  1. I saw an IPA so I’m in. :). I love these hotels you post about. Each one is more charming than the next. The Yorkshire seems to be the more traditional hotel while the Scran is more trendy. Both places look great. Food and drink included. I probably would have had the steak as well.

  3. That is a super impressive outside the building has. I like that the room has a separate seated area as you can enjoy it a bit more when it’s not just the bed x

  4. I dn’t know when I would visit Harrogate but whenever I do I will choose this hotel. The Yorkshire building looks so nice. The rooms in both are quite attractive and the perfect place to relax. Love the breakfast spread in Yorkshire.

  5. What an absolutely gorgeous hotel!! Not been to Harrogate for years but really should make the trip there this year. Those mugs are awesome! All the food looks amazing… and has made me seriously hungry! 🙂 Sim x

  6. I love when hotels and resorts make use of the information screen on the television to provide real, actionable information rather than just packing it full of generic hotel promotional material. If I were to see 4 ads about local attractions and a single shout out to the hotel room service, for example, I would be FAR more likely to work room service into my plans moving forward than if I were bombarded with 5 overly promotional hotel ads. Adding value wins me over every time!

  7. I love the way the bedroom and bathroom have been set out they look really good. We have a rain shower at home they’re wonderful and a great touch. The desserts sound amazing, not sure which I’d love most!

  8. This looks like a perfect location to visit all the sites in the area. The accommodations were fabulous! I know this is going to sound weird but what is really sticking with me is the vegan brownie at the Scran restaurant. I am vegetarian and so I tend to bypass the steak and burger reviews on these sites but love to see alternative selections and especially vegan!

  9. Looks beautiful. I’ve never been to Harrogate and I’m always on the look out for a nice location for a weekend break with my husband. And those cauliflower tacos might just tempt me here!
