Superb experience

Me and my wife visited here for the first time. We booked a table for 7:30 not knowing what to expect .We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who showed us to our table. Don't know if he was a mind reader but he asked my wife if she would like a bottle of prosecco which was spot on.... read more

The new Ilkley Branch... What a fabulously designed restaurant. Over two floors which was a surprise, with timber being the main theme. Huge wooden tables, with logs and brickwork used cleverly for to walls and ceilings, giving it a very welcoming homely feel, somewhere you'd like to stay. Food wise it was exceeded, just as good as it's Alwoodley sister.... More

My friend and I enjoyed falafel and garlic king prawns for starters, which were perfect size - not too big or small. The mains were quite big, very filling, smell amazing and taste amazing too - mixed sauté (which I would have preferred chicken saute only after tasting the lamb - I am not a big fan of lamb anyway)....

Finally visited after 2 years of saying that we will. It exceeded our expectations across the board - the atmosphere was great, cosy and comfortable, the food was gorgeous and fresh and the service was spot on. We will absolutely be back.

I visited here on the recommendation of a friend and I was not disappointed. The waitress pointed out that they had a meal deal on; any two courses for £12.95. As the majority of the mains were £12.95 or over on their own this was great. They even put the sharing platters in the deal which is rare. The food... More

Would definatley recommend eating here, great service! Really cosy feel to the restaurant. Food tastes amazing, great selection on the menu! Great presentation, and the staff were very friendly , even giving us a free shot at the end! My mum and dad then went again a few weeks later and the staff recognised them and treated them so kindly... More
