Having visited Skipton on many occasions this pub had always escaped our notice. Tucked away in a cobbled courtyard it's easy to overlook but having now discovered it we'll certainly be back. Yes, it is perhaps a little dark but it's also cosy and atmospheric with friendly bar staff, a great range of beers and an imaginative menu. I had... More

Went here when we arrived for our holidays and returned on our final day of our holidays. Wonderful hand pulled beer. I had Black Sheep Golden Sheep both times and a lovely beer the second time I can't remember the name off but a stronger smooth brew. The lady serving us on Fri 29th August was extremely nice and when... More

Having lived in Skipton, some years ago, we make regular trips back to the town. On numerous occasions we have passed this pub without a second thought. This weekend we decided to give it a try. What a good choice to make. Very good range of real ales on offer. Excellent menu and pleasant staff. The food was very tasty,... More

Very good drinking pub, large selection of well kept draught plus a variety of bottles. Haven't eaten here so can't comment on food.

I lived in Skipton while going to grad school in Leeds and The Narrowboat was my favorite pub. Tucked away on a cobbled lane, cozy, and very local - this is the place to go for great ales & beers. They've got a blackboard next to the bar with all the 'guest' brews listed and - delightfully - a few... More

Visited the narrowboat last weekend during a day out at Skipton. Main reasons we chose this pub was they are dog friendly and advertise gluten free options on the menu. The pub did feel like it was lacking atmosphere slightly, however I'm not a local and was only in there a few hours! Staff were friendly enough on the bar.... More

We ordered drinks and food. 30 mins later no sign of the food so we asked the waitress for an update of how long it would take. Without going back to the kitchen she said they were just plating up. So, we ordered more drinks. 15 mins later we said we wanted to cancel the order and have a refund.... More
