We came across the Square and Compass quite by accident on our return to Harrogate due to the A59 being closed! We were not disappointed - food was excellent together with the service - couldn’t fault it. Many thanks

Love this place! The food is always lovely and the staff are super friendly. I had the baby squid & the S&C burger, absolutely delicious! Very generous portions too, so no room for a desert sadly!!
