La Feria, Cold Bath Road, Harrogate This is one restaurant I would fully recommend. I had heard mixed reports about it but never being one to listen to anyone, including myself I headed there with two of my best friends. I was impressed immediately from the outside. On walking up to the entrance there were fire patio heaters and lots of outdoor tables. Perhaps on a mid-November night, not to sit outside to eat but I could picture myself dining al fresco in the summer months. I almost wished it was summer. We were greeted and led to our table by a very friendly waiter and of course the wine was immediately ordered…bottle after bottle. The theme of the restaurant is Spanish so tapas it was and let me say, they were absolutely delicious and the presentation and service of the food was second to none. The design of the restaurant is understated and sassy including the toilets. I’m always a bit reluctant to go to public toilets and would normally squat instead of sit but on this occasion the cleanliness encouraged me to sit. Apologies for the image but I have a public toilet phobia. We were left to gossip, eat and drink without feeling, despite being the only ones left in the restaurant, we had to leave. When I eventually did leave, the staff ordered me a taxi and giving a hi-5 to myself for choosing such a fabulous restaurant, off home I went.
