Spring 2018 – What’s new…

We’ll be holding a whisky tasting evening in our atmospheric cellar on the 8th March. Hosted by whisky connoiseur, Les Harrow, you’ll be taken through 5 interesting (and different) scotch whiskys. Cheese thrown in too! Tickets fly out fast, so get in touch if interested.

The excellent (and local), micro-brewery, Harrogate Brew Co , will be taking over our pub sometime in April – date TBC. All our taps (including keg) will be serving Harrogate Brew Co beers, and we’ll be helped behind the bar by Anton (the brewer). It’s going to be good!

Preparations are underway for WoT Fest 2018 (Women on Tap). Rachel Auty is planning on this years festival to be bigger and better, including the likes of Major Toms Social and North Bar. It’s going to be good!

Ales & Ciders

Ales & Ciders

Rich and Dan believe that the best beers are produced by small batch breweries who are passionate about their brews. As a result, the bar has an ever evolving selection of ales brewed by independent micro-breweries – change is the spice of life! There will always be a mix of strengths and styles – including stouts/porters.

At any one time there will be up to 5 cask beers and 5 keg beers. Big supporters of ‘fresh is best’, Rich and Danni endeavour to have the right ratio of beers to customers, so you know that the beer is in top nick.

Please note – There is no draught lager and shandys requests are not met!

Wines & Spirits

Wines & Spirits

A small, but well formed, selection of wines and spirits are also available at The Little Ale House.

Local, handmade, gins are championed, and you will be able to find the Whittakers and Harrogate gin range on our little gin shelf.

Rich and Danni also enjoy their single malt whiskys, and there is an ever changing selection of interesting Scotch.

On the wine side of things, we’ve tried to source some lovely drops from Argentina, Spain, France, Australia and even Albania!

About us

About the Little Ale House

The Little Ale House was created by husband and wife team, Rich and Danni, in an effort to recreate a rustic country pub atmosphere in Harrogate town centre.

Passionate believers in the dying art of the ‘proper’ country style pub, the duo champion conversation, micro breweries, and a warm rustic atmosphere; they completely shun TVs, background music and pub ‘gastroficiation’!
