“ Address: 16 West Park / Town Centre / Harrogate / North Yorkshire / HG1 1BJ / England „
The coach and horses has been Harrogates most popular post work drinking establishment for many years. Without fail at 5pm everyday the place is packed with estate agents, lawyers, farmers, all walks of life looking to enjoy a beer and a chat. It is also very popular with women who like the fact that it is none intrusive pub where there is never any trouble brewing amongst all the testosterone!
The beer is extremely well priced and the food is exceptional. They have a variety of themed nights, fish night, curry night and my favourite the pie & peas night (of which the proceeds all go to charity). The quiz on a Sunday night draws in over 100 people.
If you have ever been to Harrogate you will no doubt have spotted the hoards of people that typically stand outside on the pavement along Parliament Street (the main road into the town centre) people watching. Don't get me wrong, we're not talking about louts standing outside McDonalds! It's a lovely atmosphere outside in the sun overlooking the Stray.
Bear in mind that they are one of few pubs in Harrogate who still keep to the old drinking hours of 11pm Mon to Sat and 10:30 on a Sunday, you have been warned!
Traditional English pub.
