The Little Ale House

An independent Craft Ale Micro Pub in Harrogate


As we head into 2022, we would like to say thank you to all of our customers for your continuing support – we couldn’t do it without you.

It’s been heart-warming to see people continue to socialise (safely!) in these very trying times. We hope our little pub has offered some respite from the stresses of the Covid pandemic.

We’ve got a lot of exciting plans for 2022, including significant building improvements… watch this space for updates!

Best wishes,

Rich, Danni, James, and Matt

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’!

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!
