Norse is a casual Nordic influenced restaurant in Harrogate.

Originally located within Baltzersen’s cafe it has now relocated to a new site at 28A Swan Road.

Our dishes are influenced by Nordic cuisine, and are perfect for foodies looking for a fun, interesting and alternative experience.

We use locally sourced, fresh ingredients wherever possible, changing our menu regularly.  All our dishes can be complemented with speciality craft beers, wines and cocktails.

The experience should be fun, interesting and a bit different.

In terms of atmosphere the restaurant is relaxed with streamed modern folky music, comfortable surroundings and the buzz of a busy service.

Whoever you are, we look forward to welcoming you to the restaurant soon.


Head Chef - Simon Jewitt

Our food is varied, interesting, delicious and served in comfortable surroundings.

Our chefs are influenced by Scandinavian cuisine, and embrace techniques such as curing, pickling, fermenting and dehydrating. These methods allow them to capture and develop flavours that add a unique twist to our dishes.

You can choose from the à la carte menu or our relaunched tasting menu at 59.00 per guest (the tasting menu needs to be selected in advance of dining).

You can book with us below and if you have any problems do give us a call on 01423-313-400.



At Norse a meal is not just about the food; our drinks are important too. We offer a compact range of cocktails, craft beers and wine to ensure enough variety to complement each of our dishes.

Aperitifs are an often overlooked way to start dinner so we’ve listed some really interesting options that we hope will give you something different to start off your meal.

We stock a wide range of gin to enjoy before dinner, sourced from regional distilleries in the UK, along with extra options from mainland Europe and Scandinavia.

Ales come from craft breweries across the UK, as well as from Denmark and the US.  We try to offer plenty of variety, from lagers through sours and IPAs, to stouts and porter.

Our wine list has been selected to include less common varietals and, for added breadth and interest, our drinks pairing contains wines that are not listed on the menu. Most wines are available by the glass, including two sparkling options.

If you’re having the tasting menu we offer a drinks pairing that showcases some of our higher end wines at 35.00 per guest.

We love dessert wines and once tasted a lot of our guests have found some really delicious options that they might not ordinarily have chosen, please do ask us if you’d like a recommendation.

After dinner options include a growing selection of whiskies mainly from Scottish distilleries but also sourced from Sweden and Japan.
