Well worth a visit!

Good choice of ales. They had one of my favourites, Okell's from the Isle of Man. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff were friendly.

If you like your real ales, then Skipton isnt short of good pubs. The Narrowboat though stands out as a always having a great choice of beers that are always on form.

Cracking selection of real ales with friendly, knowledgable staff and a nice quiet atmosphere with no music in background. Didn't have food but menu does look to be very good with reasonable prices.

My father-in-law has taken me here many times since they moved up north. He has also taken me to many more of Skipton's many pubs but none beat this place. The beer selection is exceptional and the staff are very knowledgable about them. The food is also good and it's dog friendly. If you visit Skipton then you must seek... More
