The Little Ale House

An independent Craft Ale Micro Pub in Harrogate

Latest News and Updates – July 2021

19th July 2021

Hi all

As you know we are able to operate without restrictions from Monday 19 July.

However, we don’t feel that the time is right just yet to return to our original model. As such, we are putting in place the following measures to balance the safety of our customers and the ability to operate successfully.

Table service: We will provide table service to anyone sat inside or in our front yard. This is to stop a crowded bar area and control/reduce numbers of people in our premises.

Ventilation: We will continue to keep all our external doors and windows open to ensure the space is well ventilated.

Bar Service: There will be no bar service inside. Bar service will be offered to those in the backyard via the serving hatch/window. The max in the queue will be 2 people.

Sanitiser: We will provide sanitiser stations, and staff will continue to sanitise their hands in between service.

Face Masks: Masks will be optional.

Distancing: Please use common sense and respect others when it comes to social distancing.

Capacity: We will continue to operate at a reduced capacity.

We will review our Covid-19 policy every two weeks, and inform customers of any changes when necessary.

Also, a little reminder that we’re back to first come first serve and that, as ever, we can’t accommodate big groups, notably stag or hen parties!

All the best,

Team LAH

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’!
