We are very pleased to confirm that we are open and operating under Tier 2 rules. Great service and freshly prepared dishes are waiting for you. Our selection of drinks is also good as ever and physical distancing and hygiene measures are in place ready for your visit.

Please book online to join us for a meal. This will enable you to receive our current guidelines and give us details relevant to your visit. There is no need to book for a morning coffee, as we usually have tables available but we will take your contact details on arrival.


You will find The Square & Compass four miles south west of Harrogate. We are a 40 minute stroll from Almscliffe Crag and a short drive from RHS Harlow Carr.


Our car park has space for 36 vehicles and as long as you have booked a table, we plan to make it possible for you to choose whether to sit inside or outside. 

Always stay safe by following National Guidance. Please treat our neighbours and local area with respect and do your bit to make sure our pub can stay open.
