A regular spot for us after 5 a side, just the job for a nice pint and a chat by the fire. Good and lively later on in the evenings too.

Meeting friends in Skipton so booked Sunday lunch at The Woolly Sheep. We ordered large diet cokes but were brought small ones, I thought I'd ordered the oven roast lamb loin but the Sunday lamb roast was produced, otherwise the service was reasonable. Starters and puds were delicious but expensive, serving them on slates and slabs of wood doesn't justify... More

My wife and I visited the Woolly Sheep on two or three occasions whilst on holiday in Skipton, but we only ate there once. It's not cheap, two meals (starter and main) and drinks (three each) came to about £75 but the quality was right up there - it's restaurant standard and certainly a cut above "pub grub". We were...

Stayed for a weekend birthday treat - and what a treat! We were warmly welcomed by Andrea. Room was at the top of this very old pub, complete with narrow corridors & creaking floor boards (fab!) It was very tastefully decorated, with a well stocked complimentary tray. Lots of thoughtful "little extra's" including a chilled bottle of Prosecco as a... More

We were staying in Skipton for a couple of days and popped in here for lunch and a couple of pints. Good selection on the menu as long as you are not a vegetarian/vegan although there were a couple of options for the former. Nice bar with a few different ales on tap, plenty of standard drinks to choose from... More

Our innkeeper suggested this one as well as another place. We needed a reservation. Superior food in a casual pub/tavern environment.

Wanted a really good pub but with great food and this really delivered. We started with a selection of Tim Taylor Beers that were fresh and spot on. We then moved on to food which was pub food at its best. Great British fare. Hock with Celeric and poached Scotch Egg. Or a burger with roasted Beetroot. Its not a... More

Lunch on a wet Thursday. Fish cake starter with poached egg was good but seriously over priced at nearly £8. My main and starter came at the same time and the same main of fish and chips was served back to me having been assured a fresh one...... naughty!! I was the last in the dinning area at 4 pm... More

We walked in early evening on a Thursday having seen the menu outside. We certainly weren't disappointed. The food was different as well as tasty. I had a starter with a scotch egg, muffin and micro herbs on it. Weird but tasted wonderful, The rest of the meal that followed was equally enjoyable. Next time I am in Skipton that... More
