Major Tom’s Social – Harrogate

“A youth club for grown ups” is how Major Tom’s Social describes itself. It’s apt.

Situated on the first floor over Space Harrogate (vintage shop on The Ginnel) Major Tom’s Social is a big room with comfy old sofas around the perimeter, decorated with memorabilia like vinyl records and posters of classic films.

With its quirky interiors, offering something a bit different from other bars in central Harrogate, it feels inviting from the moment you walk in.

Perhaps more importantly, there’s an excellent choice of drinks (including craft beers on tap) and proper Italian stone-baked pizzas on offer, all served by friendly, helpful bar staff.

We try a couple of beers: Northern Alchemy’s oatmeal pale (mango, lime + cracked black pepper) and Atom’s IPA (both gorgeously bright and easy drinking) before moving onto prosecco with pizzas.

Pizza menu

Pizzas start from £5.00 – very reasonably priced and not to be missed. I had a free range egg, spinach and goats cheese pizza @ £6.00. Both the thin stone-baked base and fresh toppings were superb.

The verdict: nice style, great atmos and service, fab beers and pizza. Go if you can.
