French brasserie Côte to close Harrogate restaurant

Côte Brasserie, Harrogate

French brasserie Côte is set to close its Harrogate branch in the first week of April.

The restaurant is part of a chain specialising in all-day French bistro cuisine. The company has more than 80 restaurants in the United Kingdom and 2,500 employees.

Côte, which has operated on Albert Street for several years in the former Beales Department Stores unit, will close on April 6. It will result in approximately 20 job losses although staff have been offered placements at other Côte restaurants.

Neighbouring Côte restaurants, including one in York, will remain open.

A Côte spokesperson said:

“The restaurant will close on April 6.  Just the Harrogate store is closing, we have reached the end of the tenancy contract and have not found anywhere else to relocate.

“We are trying to find a new location but it will take time, it is unpredictable and we are asking loyal customers to subscribe to our newsletter so we can keep them posted about a new location. We have no further updates at this time.”

Today’s email newsletter read:

“We regret to inform you that our Harrogate restaurant will be closing on the 6th of April. Whilst the site is a permanent closure, we love the city and we have been working hard to find a new location; however, this process takes time, and we want it to be in the right place for our future growth.

“We haven’t been able to find the right spot yet, but we hope to have more news on that in the coming months. We would love for you to remain on our mailing list so we can let you know when we’ve found the perfect place”
