About William & Victoria

William & Victoria has been a Harrogate favourite for more than 40 years. It's one of the most well-known and trusted independent restaurants in town, known for its warm welcome, extensive wine list, delicious food and excellent service.

Located in the heart of Harrogate in between the Montpellier Quarter and thriving Cold Bath Road, William & Victoria has been owned and managed by the Straker family since 1982 with David Straker as front of house for over 28 years.

Enjoy a selection of wines by the glass, sample some bar tapas or indulge in the full Yorkshire dining experience in one of our intimate dining rooms or in our newly created outdoor pergola. Our menus are based on British classics with influences from around the world – you'll find something to suit all tastes.

We use locally sourced ingredients from Yorkshire farms and reputable local suppliers offering British classics, steaks, seasonal game and delicious fish dishes. Our infamous slow roast lamb Henry is synonymous with William & Victoria! The fixed priced Daily Set Menu offers excellent value and is available at lunchtime and early evening until 6.30pm.

Sunday lunch is served 12 until 6pm featuring Sirloin of roast beef and Yorkshire puddings plus lots of W&V favourites.

Downstairs you will find a vibrant atmosphere with low ceilings and a bar area flagged with Yorkshire stone, with blackboard listing the specials and wines by the glass. The downstairs area has a bistro feel.

Upstairs is more spacious with the allure of Victorian high ceilings and chandeliers, suitable for larger parties.

Outside you'll find our covered pergola armed with heaters and cosy blankets for cooler days with a few 'walk in' tables along Cold Bath Road perfect for sunny alfresco dining.

Our private dining options are ideal for special celebrations and business entertaining - please contact us directly to discuss your requirements and menu options.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Excellent meal as always. Really impressed how they have adapted their outside space to serve customers during current phase of lockdown. Staff as always cheerful , helpful and polite even the frequent hail downpours couldn’t dampen their enthusiasm

Love Will & Vic's. We had the slight misfortune of booking a session when we had to sit outside and it was rainy and cold! However, the weather isn't something the restaurant can determine. What it can determine is the quality of the food, and at W&V's it is second to none. I had my usual which was the Lamb Henry, which is always superb. It's knife-sinkingly-good! Hopefully we'll go there again once we can all sit inside and enjoy another session - it's another excuse to go.

The only downside was it was a struggle to get in and out of my seat due to the back to back table set up! Other than then everything else was perfect!

We ordered the lamb shank and the pork cheeks. The food was awful I would compare it to a microwaveable meal from a supermarket. Absolutely will not be returning! I am disgusted at the prices you charge for such substandard food. I cannot for the life of me understand why this place has good reviews. Maybe the food tastes better if you are drunk?!
