There is now a sign that says "Business for Sale", such a shame as we never had a bad meal there and it was on a par with many of the more expensive dining venues in the Harrogate area.

So sad to hear such an excellent restaurant has closed, on each occasion we have eaten at Beckets we have been amazed at the superb food and friendly service. Great loss to our area to have lost such a high standard restaurant.
