“Nice pub grub on a wet windy night”

Reviewed 16 March 2015

Had an evening meal here whilst on a one night stay in Skipton. It was a Monday night in February so it was very quiet and the pub had run out of some of the ciders which had been on offer. The young lady behind the bar was helpful and pleasant, the food was hot and tasty pub grub style...

Reviewed 24 February 2015

Stayed in Skipton on a Mon night in February & very quickly realised that most restaurants appeared to be closed on Mondays!!! So glad though because although we weren't expecting much from this pub, we were pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding, excellent choice on the menu & really tasty & obviously home cooked food. The staff were so friendly...
