HALES BAR & VAULTS

Certainly the most historic and oldest pub in Harrogate, this establishment has a history going back to the earliest days of the town’s emergence as a leading spa resort & is Grade II listed

Originating as one of the first inns for spa visitors after sulphur wells were first established in the mid-17th century. Sulphur springs still flow beneath the cellar and their distinctive odours occasionally percolate up to the bar area.

The premises were rebuilt circa 1827, at this time it was a most successful coaching inn. It was enlarged in 1856 and known as Hodgson’s until 1882 when William Hales became the landlord.

The main saloon bar preserves itself well, with mirrors and other interesting features and fittings from the Victorian era, including stuffed birds, leather alcoves, fully working traditional gas lighting and open flame cigar lighters & antique brewery memorabilia.

The inn would have been known to Tobias Smollett who in May 1766 visited Harrogate in which he set part of his novel Humphrey Clinker. Used by Sir John Barbirolli as his favourite when the Halle Orchestra visited to play in the town, it was also used for interior scenes in the film Chariots of Fire. Also used in DCI Banks for interior filming in 2012.

Our Vaults bar, initially known as The Promenade Inn, is the original 17th century Georgian style Vaults room
that formed part of the old coaching inn & previously traded as a wines & spirits merchant. Newly refurbished in 2013, uncovering original wooden beams, a stone display alcove & real log fire re-instated from the old coaching inn of yesteryear.
