Harrogate Town fc. Small ground for a league club but has all the amenities for a good day out. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food is a bit pricey, could do with taking a few pounds off the prices of the food and drinks. Other than that it's a good place to visit

Food over priced,£8.00 for a burger,piie and peas £7.50...most expensive food in this division!!! Plus no souvenir shop?? Get a grip for more stars, born and bred in Bradford West, so as all Yorkshiremen speak my mind as I see.. sorry if this offends..but Salford City won the match,lessened your price!!

I thought Harrogate Town coped very well with the power problem at last night's match with Portsmouth. The ground is compact but has really good facilities. The cafe we queued at had plenty of stock, including vegan and vegetarian options. The surface looks good and played very well considering the icy rain and wind.

Nice little stadium.... Not sure if it's a good enough standard for the Football League though..
Small stadium but with all the facilities that you would need. Very friendly ground and entertaining match – no aggro, swearing etc that you can get in bigger places. Office staff were very helpful in sorting tickets for me and appreciated an after match e mail with highlights & photos including 2 with us in them. Nice touch.

History (from Wikipedia)

While Harrogate Town formed in 1914, their original ground was on Starbeck Lane with the club later moving to Wetherby Road. The club constructed the Main Stand in 1990; with the most recent development being the Hospital End stand being built in 2014. Since September 2020, the ground is sponsored by local ventilator manufacturers EnviroVent.[5]

The record crowd was for the 1949–50 Whitworth Cup Final against 
Harrogate Railway (4,280), while the record league gate was for the 3–0 win over Brackley Town in the National League North playoff final in May 2018 (3,000).[6]

Due to 
English Football League regulations requiring natural turf, Harrogate played their first home games after their 2020 promotion at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster. On 17 October, they returned to Wetherby Road and won 1–0 against Barrow in the first EFL game at the ground.[7]


The pitch is aligned on a north–south alignment. To the East side is the all-seated Main Stand, to the West side is the turnstiles and a smaller all seated stand with facilities for sponsors and the directors. Until 2014 there were no structures to the northern (hospital) side of the ground, however, spectators could stand alongside the pitch. In 2014 a covered stand with standing facilities was added. To the south side is the clubhouse.[8]

I have to say, I've spent quite a few evenings in the Old Bell Tavern. The food, IMHO, is top-notch. Maybe not the level of the Queen's Head Inn, but very... Read More
