Alfresco dining in the UK has soared in popularity over the past few years, with more restaurants, bars and pubs racing to open outdoor spaces to meet public demand. Not all terraces are created equally, however, one of Harrogate’s most beloved hotel, bar and restaurant is there to prove it.

The West Park Hotel, famous for its warm Yorkshire welcome, culinary delights, and stunning views of the lush green Harrogate Stray reveal their brand new ‘The Courtyard’ and the result is an impressive vision of modernity.

From the fresh teal shades of bespoke heated seating, to the beautiful tiled flooring and the living wall perfect to capture shots of your favourite moments, it is a space that’s both understated and contemporary. The crowning jewel is the retractable roof, designed to allow guests to soak up the sunshine and protect them from the unpredictable British elements.

The new courtyard will also include a new bar, stocked with both local and international ales, spirits and wines. The brand new refurbishment is sure to boost the hotel’s already stellar reputation as one of Harrogate’s finest drinking and dining spots.

Speaking of the refurbishment, Tom Patrick, head of marketing at the Provenance Inns said: "The privilege of welcoming back our loyal customers alone is quite something after a turbulent year, but to be able to knock them for six with our eye-popping makeover makes it even better. The design is beautiful and the heated seating, heat lamps and retractable roof ensure we can welcome guests come rain or shine.

"The makeover is the result of public demand, with more of our customers seeking out alfresco venues to soak up as much of the sun as they can. It’s the perfect setting to unwind and indulge in what I believe to be our most ambitious and mouth-watering food menus to date, especially for those that love their hearty British comfort food, prime steak and seafood. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to The West Park Hotel.’’

Guests at West Park are spoilt for choice, with flavoursome new dishes such as the Rump of Yorkshire Warrendale Wagyu Beef and the new Peppered Tuna Sashimi which are set to become future favourites. Meanwhile, those looking for more of a lighter lunch may look towards light bites such as the Indian Spiced Pulled Chicken Wrap or Warm Goats Cheese & Roast Mediterranean Vegetables as they work their way through the wine and cocktail list. The signature cocktails at West Park do not disappoint. The Rhubarb and Wild Berry sour made with Slingsbury Rhubarb Gin and Crème de mure and The WestPark retreat made with Mount Gay Rum topped with caramel syrup are sure to crave those sweet tooth guests after a magnificent meal at West Park.

West Park also offers deluxe accommodation for those looking to enjoy an extended stay in the iconic spa town of Harrogate, with rooms boasting super king Hypnos beds and Nespresso coffee machines.
