Twenty four businesses across Knaresborough are taking part in the town’s first ever food and drink week.

Knaresborough businesses launch first ever food and drink week Twenty four Knaresborough businesses are taking part in the town’s first ever food and drink week. The event, which launches today (Monday), is similar to Harrogate’s Restaurant Week in that it will provide cut-price food and drink offers throughout the week. It’s being organised by Knaresborough Business Collective and includes early bird menus, afternoon teas and bundle deals. Natalie Horner from Knaresborough Business Collective said:

“We decided to showcase all Knaresborough has to offer in the food and drink sector, so have included the lovely cafes, restaurants and pubs too! “We wanted to include as many businesses as possible and allow for both day and evening eateries to participate.”
Natalie added:
“We think the event will encourage people to come in town and enjoy what the business have to offer. “The hospitality sector has had a hard few years and so we will do all we can to help where and when we can.”
The following businesses are taking part: The Black Mulberry The Farm Dairy The Hungry Caterpillar Kids Cafe The Wine Shop and Next Door Carriages in Knaresborough Castle Creamery Number Thirteen So Bar & Eats Subway Two Brothers Grill and Pizzeria Yorkshire Beeswax Candle Co Zolsha 1858 Bar & Restaurant The Orange Grove The Park Pantry The Secret Bakery The Watermill Dil Raj Restaurant Drakes Fisheries Honey Bee’s at Hannah’s Huttons Butchers J B Wilkinson & Sons Quality Butchers Lawai Spice No Place Like Home The Knaresborough Business Collective is in its third year and put on events and activities throughout the year to bring people into town to support local businesses. As a long-standing Knaresborough business owners themselves, Natalie and Annie, who run the collective, know what works for the town and how to attract shoppers. Natalie said:
“There are so many amazing businesses in Knaresborough it is just a case of showcasing what we have to offer and drawing people in.”
The Knaresborough Business Collective plan to run a ‘health & beauty week’ and a ‘retail week’ in the lead up to the Knaresborough Business awards, which take place this summer. Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
