Birthday party

We had my sons birthday meal here early this year because he absolutely loves the place. This was not our first visit and won't be our last the food is great, service is friendly. My son loves the pizzas but I think the burgers are the best, never had a bad meal here.

If you love an early 80s soundtrack, complete with KISS, yes KISS pumping out for your entertainment, proper mahouussive cocktails and unfashionably immense portions, as I do, then you will love Calico Jacks. Also if you have a young boy to entertain, it works well. we've been as a family three times now, had great service every time and come... More

We enjoyed everything here last Saturday, we should have booked, we were very lucky to get a table! It was really busy! Glad that we did! The children coloured their special menu's and we relaxed & each treated ourselves to a (really good) cocktail. We selected from a huge, super choice of drinks & food. I enjoyed a really good...

If you're in Skipton and have young children with you and need to eat - this place is place is perfect! Pirate themed, kids menu, lots of colouring books to keep them entertained. The food is very good and the service excellent from very friendly and attentive staff. There's a nice terrace out front too if the weather is nice.

We stopped by with 2 children, one 2 and one 4. The staff were great, there was a good selection of children's food and plenty of colouring in books and sticker books to keep the children busy. The pirate theme worked well and the food was excellent. I had a burger with jalapeños which was really tasty and fairly spicy.... More

As were travelling around the Yorkshire dales area we stopped in Skipton for dinner. We loved the atmosphere, staff friendly, food fresh. For entrees we had the sharing plate of chicken wings which were yummy. The peri peri had a kick to them. It was reasonably priced. If you're not looking for real fancy food this is the place. Relaxing... More

Poor quality food and mostly frozen microwaved After eating at Calico Jack restaurant in Skipton last weekend everyone in the party experienced food poisoning. We each ate different meals, this can only relate to poor food hygiene standards. This is not acceptable We wont be going back there ever again

We came out into Skipton for my wife's birthday with some friends. When we got there our table wasn't ready but the staff did everything they could to sort our table out asap. The complimentary tequila help with the wait and the warm sunshine as we sat outside. When we got seated and ordered the food was excellent
