Brilliant pub. Supposedly oldest in town going back to 1766. I believe it, old and quirky. Still got gas lamps on the bar. Several real ales and a few foreign beers. We really enjoyed our visit, hope to try the food next time. The barmaid was really friendly. Cracking old pub you should try it.

Quirky, cosy, friendly and interesting. Good selection of drinks too. I plucked up courage to go in alone as a colleague had recommended the bar. I was rewarded by a friendly member of staff who chatted with me while I drank mulled wine. It wasn't busy at 6 pm, so I could take in the interesting decor and atmosphere. Do not miss the bar when you visit Harrogate. It was very handy for me as I was staying at the Old Swan.

I had a surreal night here. Did not know it would be karaoke or was it a drag night!? But most excellent fun and lovely people.

About us

Certainly the most historic & oldest pub in Harrogate originating as one of the first inns for spa visitors after sulphur wells were first established in the mid-18th century.   Our main lounge bar preserves its historic character with mirrors & other interesting features & fittings from the Victorian era, including traditional gas lighting & bar top cigar lighters.  The original Georgian style Vaults room which previously traded as a wines & spirits merchants was refurbished in 2013, uncovering original wooden ship beams, a stone display alcove & fireplace now with a more traditional real log burner. This room is available for private functions, ideal for meetings & accommodates 30 guests. The building is reputed to be haunted although we’ve yet to be spooked!   Included in many novels, historic pub guides & newspaper articles, used by Sir John Barbirolli as his favourite when the Halle Orchestra visited to play in the town, it was also used for interior scenes in the 1981 film Chariots of Fire & DCI Banks in 2012.   Weekly entertainment includes our popular Thurs karaoke, twice weekly open-mic acoustic sessions Weds from 8.30 pm & Sun from 4.30 pm & a monthly folk afternoon.    Serving a full bar range of cask ales, wine & spirits; home- made lunches & we’ve even a secret beer garden created in 2016.
