News – The Tannin Level – British Restaurant in Harrogate


Harrogate Welcomes the World!

At The Tannin Level we’re delighted that Harrogate is hosting the UCI World Cycling Championships. And with our Restaurant being on Raglan Street (just a few yards from the finish line) we’re doing all we can to ensure the crowds of keen supporters are kept well fed and watered throughout the event.

We’re open from 12 noon until 9pm daily (9.30pm on Saturday) and will be serving our Lunch, Early Bird and A La Carte menus showcasing the finest local seasonal ingredients the Great County of Yorkshire has to offer.

And to Celebrate the UCI World Championships, we are having a Barbecue on our terrace outside where we will be serving the legendary Tannin Level Burger, Pulled Pork, and Halloumi Sandwiches to go. The Barbecue will be open daily from 12 noon until 5pm.

We do wish all Harrogate’s visitors a wonderful experience and we of course hope that you pop in to see us during your time at the 2019 UCI World Championships, whether for a Tasty Hot Sandwich to eat on the go, or to join us in the Restaurant and enjoy Yorkshire on a Plate!

The Tannin Level Sunday Lunch…

You can have Sunday Lunch, or you can have a Tannin Level Sunday Lunch! We have our Signature Roasts; Locally Reared Pork with Crispy Crackling, and our legendary Beef Rump, sourced from local Heritage Breeds (usually Angus or Hereford) and aged to perfection. Probably the best Roast Beef we’ve ever tasted (and we’ve tasted a lot of beef!)

And, we offer a ‘Half and Half’ option, if (like us) you cant decide which Roast you would prefer.

Of course no Sunday Roast would be complete without our Yorkshire Puddings and delicious Roast Potatoes. Plenty of Fresh Seasonal Vegetables on the side, our decadent Cauliflower Cheese and a jug of our Homemade Gravy. Simply perfect!

We also have an ‘All the Veg’ option with vegetarian Gravy, and of course we have plenty of other delicious dishes on the menu if you just don’t fancy a Sunday Roast. What’s not to like?

So go on, book your Tannin Level Sunday Lunch Today!

Summer Dishes at The Tannin Level!

We have some wonderful new dishes for Summer 2019. For example, for a light lunch we have our Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Bagel whilst for non meat eaters there’s our Crispy Smoked Tofu, Torched Fig and Pomegranate Salad.

Making a return to our Lunch and Pre Theatre menus is our Classic Caesar Salad with Chargrilled Chicken and Bacon, whilst on our A La Carte menu we’ve added Cod Chunk, Artichoke Puree, Artichoke Crisps and Hassleback Potato. If you prefer red meat, there’s our Lamb rump with a Garlic & Thyme Croquette, Burnt Balsamic Onions, Cavolo Nero & a Minted Lamb Jus.

If you have a sweet tooth you could try our amazing Lemon and Prosecco Syllabub with Amaretto Crumb and Summer Berries.

Summer perfection!

Happy Easter everyone!


Well after being lulled into a false sense of security by ‘Tropical February’, the weather seems to have given us just long enough to do a full wardrobe change over, to then demand we put the Flip Flops and Parasols away and get the Wellies and Brollies back out. But to be fair we shouldn’t complain, no ‘Beast from the East’ this year touch wood!

Regardless of what The Elements throw our way our team of Chefs are very busy creating our ‘Spring Menu’ and as always sourcing the best available local ingredients to go into the dishes that come and join our menu.

Whilst we are all really looking forward to the arrival of the new Menu, ‘The Girls’ front of house are very happy that the Chocolate Brownie survived the menu change. They all seem to take ‘Quality Control’ very seriously when that particular item comes out of the oven…..can’t possibly imagine why!

We have a couple of dates for your diaries, the first is the ever moveable ‘Mother’s Day’ which is on Sunday 31stMarch (we would all have a fighting chance of remembering it if it didn’t move around quite so much, it doesn’t even stay in the same month!). Please book early to avoid disappointment, and more importantly finding yourself on the wrong side of your Mother when she asks where you are taking her on Sunday morning! The second is Easter Sunday on Sunday 21stApril, and we will be open for both from 12 ’til 5pm as usual. 

So be it our delicious Sunday Roast – Rare Roast Salt Aged Beef, Locally Outdoor Reared Pork and Crackling, for those who can’t decide (namely me) there’s our ‘Half & Half’, ‘All the Veg’, our Vegetarian Roast Dinner served with Veggie Gravy or something from the A la Carte menu; we look forward to welcoming you all!

Its Mothers Day at The Tannin Level!

It’s Mothers Day on Sunday 31st March. And whilst we all love our Mums, what better way to show them our love than by treating them to a Mothers Day Sunday Lunch at The Tannin Level?

We’re taking bookings now, (simply use the booking form here on our website, call or email the restaurant), and to show how much we appreciate all the Mums in the world, we’re going to greet them all on the day with a complimentary glass of Prosecco!

So go on, book a table now and show your Mum the love…

Valentines Day at The Tannin Level

Have you booked for Valentines Day yet? The Tannin Level is perfect for a Romantic Dinner Date with its cosy corners, quiet alcoves and church candles flickering on every table. And we’re serving our Valentines Menu from Tuesday 12th to Friday 15th February. So go on, treat someone special!

Valentine Menu


As the words “I’m bored” are replaced with “I can’t find my PE Kit” it can only mean one thing…. the end of Summer….. oooh and far more importantly it is time for “The Salad” to step aside and let our fantastic Autumn and Winter comfort dishes take centre stage!

I defy anybody to tell me they look at a Chicken Caesar or Torched Mackerel Salad the same way they look at Pan Seared Duck Breast, Dauphinoise Potatoes, Sticky Red Cabbage or 6 Hour Braised Feather Blade of Beef with Buttery Mash and a Red Wine Jus (I know people…. the wait is finally over. My lovely Newcastle ladies who drive over here every year, have dinner and take it away with them to serve on Christmas Day will be delighted. 5 years and neither husband knows they don’t make it yet!!). There simply is no ‘salad leaf’ that can stand up to that, and that’s before we even talk about Winter Berry Crumble & Custard! Autumn and Winter food is simply delicious in every way.

Plus of course, ‘Autumn and Winter & The Tannin Level’ are like ‘Gin & Tonic’, ‘Morecombe & Wise’, ‘Cheese on Toast’ – simply made for each other. Coming in out of the cold, dark, wet, snow, hail, sleet (or a medley of all the above in one go!) into our cosy candlelit restaurant is a must.

Whether you just fancy a bowl of hot, fresh, homemade soup (no tin openers here!) at lunchtime or want to take advantage of our fantastic 1, 2 or 3 course Lunch/Early Bird menu (which we are still serving all night on a Tuesday, then Wednesday – Saturday evenings 5.30 – 7pm) or something from the A la Carte menu or Specials Board there really is something for everyone.

As always, the chefs have been working really hard sourcing some fantastic local ingredients to put onto our new menu. Front of house favourites are our signature Trio of Pork, Pan Roasted Duck Breast, and of course the Medallions of Beef Rump Filet. My mouth’s watering just thinking about them!

Which leads me nicely to say welcome back to Amelia. I can now say with confidence the Sticky Toffee Pudding will be fabulous at all times, not because Amelia makes it, but she does like to ‘quality control’ it on every shift she works…. I know, she is very conscientious!

So, dig out your big jumpers and welcome back the Carbs and Great Puddings!

Wishing you all A Happy Autumn!
