Had afternoon tea here and lunch on a two night stay in Harrogate. The quality and service were exemplary as always. A little on the expensive side but worth it. Pleasant wherever you are seated. Very classy.

I don't think you can book for the cafe or restaurant. Maybe for the tea in the upstairs lounge.
