Harrogate gets two new takeaways
Last updated Feb 3, 2024

Two new food venues are to open in Harrogate.

Pepe’s Piri Piri welcomed its first customers on Knaresborough Road this week while fish and chip shop Portside is preparing to open soon.

The piri piri chicken chain is known for its six different flavours, with options ranging from mango and lime to extremely hot. 

Store manager Rana Hossain said after Thursday’s opening:

“I love the community, the customers were fabulous and polite.

“People seemed excited for Pepe’s coming to Harrogate, and seemed to really like the food.

“I was not expecting the sort of opening we had, to say we had not done much advertising and faced a complicated process in preparing for opening – but I am happy with the team and the nice Harrogate community. 

“We have a big venue and huge variety on the menu.”

Fish and chip business Portside already has premises in Leeds, Pontefract and South Elmsall. 

The chain offers vegetarian and vegan options, and says it cooks all its fish and chips in vegetable oil. 

Its arrival will increase competition in Starbeck, which already has Bradley’s Fish and Chip shop at 12 High Street, and Drakes on Knaresborough Road.
