Popped out for a bite to eat in Skipton and hadn't booked anywhere. Decided to call into Calico's and we only had to wait 5 mins for a table. The staff were very friendly and made sure all our needs were met. The range of food on offer is great. Only problem is deciding what to have! The burgers are... More

I have to admit to not having high expectations of Calico Jacks but maybe that's the best plan as one can then be pleasantly surprised. The best part was the service which was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. It makes such a big difference to an evening out when it appears the staff care about you enjoying your meal - and...

I moved to Skipton a few years ago and was amazed at how many restaurants there were with such great choice of cuisine. This place has got to be my favourite though....Everytime I go I look at the menu and can't decide what to have as everything is amazing....although I always end up going for the same thing!!! Only because... More

Went to Calico Jacks last weekend as a party of four and once again loved it. We are in the catering business in Skipton as well and would definately recommend this place to anyone wanting good food and great service!

Had my 40th birthday meal here. It's the first time I've eaten there, food was amazing, great atmosphere, staff and management very accommodating, and considering we were a party of sixteen, we didn't wait too long for our food and it was all piping hot and delicious. Definitely recommend it and will be going back for sure.

I have to agree with the recent review about the oily roasted vegetables. They were all dark and unidentifiable. The chicken is the best to go for, but with the heavy bbq sauce on the side rather than all over the dish. Staff attentive and friendly.

Went with friends for a mid week meal. We were served reasonably quickly as it was very quiet. The chicken and rib dishes were nice, not large portions but ok. But my roasted vegetables were very over cooked and absolutely swimming in oil so that the taste of the vegetables were non existing. I didn't eat them. The chef was... More
