“ Address: 24 Kings Road / Harrogate / HG1 5JY / North Yorkshire / England „
BED (stands for Burnsey Eat Drink - Burnsey is the owner) in Harrogate is one of the cooler restaurants in town. The stigma attached to Harrogate is often that it is a wealthy town full of old people queuing to get to Bettys Tea Rooms but Bed dares to speak out and actually doesn't take itself too seriously. It's located on Kings Road just a stones throw from the conference centre and is split over 3 floors. It's almost worth going just to read the menus which are hilarious. One of my favourites has to be the 'Hide the Sausage' which is a dish whereby sausage meat is cooked with shallots, sage and redcurrant and then encased in a jacket potato, it's more tasty than it sounds!
It's a very trendy but not pretentious place to eat, any place that gives you a curly wurly with the bill rather than a mint has to be worth visiting! It does a good early bird menu but with it being so close to the conference centre I would recommend you book rather than just turning up.
Otherwise known as BED has three floors - a bar area on the ground floor and and two separate dining rooms. Traditional fare.
