Popular Harrogate Restaurant Gets A Makeover From A Chip Off The Old Block

Catch, the award-winning seafood restaurant brand, are opening their latest addition to the group on Cheltenham Parade in Harrogate, in the former Graveley’s restaurant and takeaway.

The site has undergone a £250k transformation during lockdown, and will open as a takeaway on 19th April. The restaurant is due to open in May in line with Government restrictions.

If like me it has been a long time since you have been to Graveley’s you will be intrigued to see what the transformation looks like.

Catch pride themselves on delivering a casual seafood dining experience, using sustainably sourced, quality seafood. It is the latest in a long line of family fish and seafood businesses which spans nearly a century.

The good news is that you can have your Fish and Chips cooked in beef dripping, something my southern friends can’t get their tastebuds around as well as the more healthy sunflower oil alternative.

The investment includes a significant kitchen upgrade that will allow the restaurant team to broaden its menu and serve the top quality and healthy seafood dishes that the Catch brand are known for, alongside traditional fish and chip meals.

A new bar area has also been incorporated into the refitted restaurant, which will serve a range of draught products, delicious cocktails and fantastic wines. Exclusive to Catch Harrogate is a Champagne and Oyster bar for diners to enjoy. Obviously they have thought of the local market!

Sarah Stuttle, Managing Director at Catch, commented:
“We’re all so excited to be expanding the Catch family and opening our fifth restaurant. Graveley’s has been a part of the local community for a long time, and we’re excited to welcome these loyal customers to Catch, as well as some new faces, when we reopen.”

In addition to Harrogate, the Catch group includes four other restaurants in Yorkshire; Holmfirth, West Vale, Headingley and Street Lane.

I can smell those Fish and Chips now!
