Housed in a building which dates back to the 1820s, The Pine Marten has been refurbished to contemporary standards as a gastro pub serving hearty modern British and Mediterranean dishes. As well as an outdoor dining area, the pub comprises a large bar and dining room, with stone-fired ovens, fireplaces, fur-lined seats and rustic teak furniture ensuring plenty of cosy corners to enjoy a wholesome meal.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Pine Marten menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Pine Marten bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Pine Marten in Harrogate is just a 5-minute drive from Harrogate Rail Station.

    Invited friends to lunch here on Thursday, 25 August. Entered the restaurant at 12.45pm having booked a table. The waiter brought the menus and never came back until we complained at the bar. We eventually ordered and had to wait an hour for our food to turn up. When it did one of the orders had to be sent back as it was wrong. With the meal we ordered wine and water which never came until we asked a second time, being well into our food by then. The restaurant was busy with small children wandering about at will and the staff were obviously too few and unable to cope. We eventually left at 3.30pm. Our friends had never been before and we all agreed that we would be giving The Pine Marten a miss in future.

    Pleasant attentive service in relaxed surroundings, though harsh acoustics from wooden floors and wooden panelling made conversation difficult. Other members of the party of 4 really seemed to enjoy the experience and the meal. I was less impressed. Whilst my steak was excellent it was astonishingly expensive, especially considering that there were no vegetables bar a rather shriveled cooked onion atop the steak. The Belgian chocolate dessert was rich but very hard and heavy - disappointing.

    Found the menu a bit pretentious and far too many dishes included garlic which I loathe. It would have been helpful to see a menu and pricing before comitting to a booking.

    Absolutely fantastic burger. Lovely ambience as very early dining sat in window overlooking the garden.

    We were put in an area with two large tables of very noisy children. Unable to hear what my fellow diners were saying. I have previously visited this restaurant and was very disappointed as I was with people I had not seen for sometime.
