Ales & Ciders


An ever changing range of fresh beers and 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


A small, but well formed and growing, selection of wines and spirits

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


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’!

For a good cause

Autumn 2019

Anyone that’s sat in our little beer garden during the summer months will have noticed our canopy of hops, steadily growing over the yard. This hop plant, kindly donated by one of our regulars, has led to a community of hop growers (Ale House regulars), all growing clippings from the same UK Cascade hop.

This year, despite The Little Ale’s crop of hops being a little disappointing, The Harrogate Community Hop Growers have managed to produce an excellent harvest — enough to brew a beer with.

This beer won’t simply be drank however, as the hop growers have decided to henceforth dedicate the beer to a local charity. The Little Ale House had already been raising money for Frank’s Fund, and it has been decided that this excellent local charity will be the first beneficiary. The Little Ale House and Harrogate Brew Co. will both be donating part of the profits for every pint sold, and we should have 10 casks!

Harrogate Brew Co. very kindly put themselves forward to experiment with our Yorkshire hops, brewing a 4.2% golden bitter called ‘Crowd Sauce’ (which best suits English hops grown ‘up North!)
