How I wish this pub was my local. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, and a selection of fine ales (a brew from Two by Two was particularly tasty). Wish I'd had longer in Harrogate, in order to spend a bit more time in here.

Quirky, cosy little bar that I'd definitely visit again. Great selection of ales and wines. Staff really friendly and made us feel welcome. We sat in a gorgeous little courtyard out the back.

Been here many times and love the place. However, came in tonight and wanted a small sample of a beer that I was thinking of buying. Was told it’s now 30p a sample and that I wouldn’t expect to have free samples in Tesco! Well actually they do offer free samples to encourage you to buy, cheese for example. Also if you buy perfume or after shave free samples are on offer. The other night in Cold Bath Brewery I was cheerfully offered 4 beers to try (I didn’t ask for them!) based on what I said I like. I spent over £80 in there, all the beers we were sampled and the one we all liked was the most expensive one at over £7 a pint. This is the first time EVER I have been asked to pay for a small sample in any micro bar, and I visit a lot of them. When a pint is expensive it’s not unreasonable to ask for a little try. If some customers abuse this then deal with them. It’s a premium product not Carling. Half the fun of visiting a micro pub is trying new and often expensive beers and chatting with the staff about what they have. For the avoidance of doubt the bar is fab, the staff were great and the beer was really good. However, charging me 30p for a sample when the beer is way over £6 a pint have left a very sour taste in my mouth. What a shame, this has never happened to me before. I run a business too and you do have to keep an eye on costs but this policy is in my opinion wrong on so many levels. I would prefer you put the prices up to cover samples than do this, it’s just not what micro pubs are about. :-(

Brilliant little place with friendly staff and a great selection of liquid. I requested a taster prior to purchase, which was declined, luckily the beer was excellent :)

Fantastic little cosy bar with small seating area on the front and back.

Great selection of different micro brewery beers and the staff are always helpful in guiding you onto a superb pint. All the beers are well kept and presented.
