Farm Bistro & Bakery
Harrogate is a treasure trove of independent delights – they keep popping up in unexpected locations. Farm Bistro & Bakery is located up the stairs above its own bread bakery, in the centre of Harrogate.
Upstairs is bright and airy with a quirky yet homely décor. At lunchtimes the place is abuzz with chatter and we did have to wait a little for a table for two. The staff were friendly and smiley – a winning combination.
The menus range from breakfast to lunch to evening (the latter coming into play on Thursday to Saturday nights). The homemade sourdough bread features prominently, but there’s a wide selection of dishes on offer including hearty pies, salads, all-day breakfast, steak frites, and fish and chips. The drinks menu includes locally brewed craft beers, wines and fizz, plus a good selection of loose-leaf teas.
Expect a lovely selection of homemade cakes to tempt you too, gluten-free included.
