One of the best in town. Great beers and decent wine. A bit pricey, though. Quiz night every Thursday. Food is good but I'm not sure when it's actually served.

We visited Christies twice during our short stay in Harrogate, a really friendly bar with mixed clientelle, thursday night is quiz night where everyone is welcome and its fun rather than competitive our favourite of the bars we visited.

My favourite pub in Harrogate. Clean, friendly, good beer, mixed clientele. Nicely set out seating makes it feel more private than new open bars. Xmas window decorations very tasteful and not overdone. Will hopefully revisit one day.

We nearly always start of here, it is a good place to meet. It gets busy especially if there is anything on in Harrogate. The staff are really good and very helpful. There is a good selection of drinks. Normal town centre prices, we often...More

The pub was cold, lifeless (but it was a Tuesday evening) and served the gassiest pint of Carlsberg I've ever had, so gassy that I couldn't finish it. There are also several big screen televisions in the bar and they dominate. Perhaps it's a better...More

Both times I have visited Harrogate we have enjoyed a few drinks in this pub, friendly, warm welcome and seen as though both times I have visited it has lashed down with rain, we have enjoyed sitting with drinks and making use of their games!!
