My favourite restaurant in Skipton, never disappointed by the food. Great for a quite anniversary lunch or a night out with the girls. On this occasion we chose from the lunchtime/early bird menu, which was excellent value for money. We had a starter and main each and chose to share a dessert. Everything was lovely.

I've eaten at the Bistro a number of times but last weekend we had a friend visiting and went there for Sunday lunch. The menu had its usual wide range - not just roasts - of French-influenced food and we enjoyed a splendid and very rich meal - the sauces with the meats were a high point. Unfortunately we didn't...

Never eaten here before, what a mistake, best food we have had in Skipton for a long time. The venison was superbly cooked and the king scallops were perfect. I look forward to returning in the near future.

We ate early from the menu du jour. our selections took quite a while as the menu was so appetising. The goats cheese starter was superbly presented and exceedingly tasty, this was complemented by the red onion, tomatoes, leaves and balsamic. Our mains of beef bourguignon and lamb did not disappoint. The lamb was an inventive mixture of lamb and... More

We looked for somewhere for an evening meal which was something a little different and this was the place. Gluten-free was not a problem for the restaurant. Good quality food, well presented, and attentive staff. Many other diners were clearly regulars ("wine list? Gladly, but I think you'll know all that is on it" said the waitress to one table...

Stayed in Skipton for a week and didn't go here until the day before we came home (19/6/15). What a mistake! If we'd gone earlier in the week, we definitely would've been back. The staff were lovely and the food was excellent. A really good choice, we were given 3 different menus, the lunch one, the plat du jour and... More

I've lived in Skipton for about 20 years and this has probably been the consistently best place to eat over the last 5 years. Really good French food, but also seasonal ans alternative menus, so there's always great new good to try. Staff are really friendly and like the quirky French rural feel. Overall 5 stars

This is a nice restaurant serving French style food. There is a good choice on the menu and the staff were nice. Can be a bit noisy.

Our first visit, but with friends who have eaten here several times before. Lunchtime, 12.30 and seated upstairs, in glorious isolation. However, by 1pm, most of the tables were full! Very friendly waitress took our orders and set the scene nicely for our meal. Starters of field mushrooms, soup and pork and hazelnut pate were all pronounced excellent. The bread... More
