Grand Départ 2014

June 26th, 2014

Yorkshire is host to le Tour de France ‘Grand Départ’ and here, at William & Victoria in Harrogate, we are within a few hundred metres of the Stage 1 finishing line. During Le Tour weekend we have extended our opening hours and will have the addition of an outside bar and barbecue, so that you don’t miss out on the action. On Saturday and Sunday, 5th and 6th July, we will be open from 8am and serving our TDF Breakfast Menu. Book now to reserve a table.

Our TDF Wine Bar menu will be served in the Wine Bar from 11am until 10pm and includes our most popular dishes, such as the famous Slow Roast Lamb Henry. The TDF Restaurant Menu will be available from 11am until 10pm in our upstairs restaurant. Booking is advised for both venues.


For those wanting to soak up the atmosphere outside, we are offering barbecue food including Yorkshire sausage hot dogs, Sykes House Farm Burgers and W&V pulled pork sandwiches and the quintessential strawberries and cream. There is no need to book for this.

Our outside bar will be serving Pimms alongside Yorkshire’s Theakson Best Bitter, Kronenbourg lager and plenty of ice cold soft drinks too. We’ll also have a well stocked cellar and plenty of our Georges Duboeuf house wine, which we have labelled in the colours of le Tour de France! Being Harrogate’s oldest and first wine bar, you can be assured we will have plenty of wines and champagnes to celebrate the Grand Depart. We look forward to welcoming you for the Harrogate leg of le Tour de France 2014.
