Really good value

Very nice pub setting offering traditional food, often with outdoor BBQ in the summer [weather permitting!] Could do with a wider choice of beers maybe but the service is always friendly and the food is very good value.

Not what it used to be. The nut burger was over done. The meat burger was solid. The chips were over-cooked. Couldn't decide whether it was all just old and reheated or badly cooked. Shame. It used to be great for trad food. Also expensive!

Had a fabulous roast here - HUGE pieces of tender beef, lovely yorkshires and great gravy! We went for the typical Sunday Roast, but any of the starters and mains and specials sounded incredible! The servers were attentive and polite, and the atmosphere was great.

Being very much au fait with the ambience and menu of The Vaults, we recently booked for dinner, having not visited for a while. However, we weren't told at the time of booking that there would be barbecue food only, which was a problem as it was not what we were expecting, and we had vegetarians among us. As there... More

We'd reserved a table as we were unsure how busy it would be on a Wednesday. It was relatively quiet but the service was very friendly and we weren't rushed. The food was amazing and the portion sizes huge, shame we didn't know this before ordering starters, but we managed to eat everything! A very relaxed atmosphere helped a lovely... More

A lovely lunch with the family. Plenty of meat and fresh vegetables. Yorkshire puddings to die for. Would recommend it.

Pre booked a table for 5.30pm food served from 6pm. Our daughter was treating us to a meal and then dropping off my husband at King's Hall, Ilkley to listen to Michael Portillo - this was my husband's 70th birthday treat for her Dad! We were allowed to take our dog Astra into the Restaurant area, which completed our family... More

Yes I know its the Ilkley Moor Vaults but to the locals this and always will be The Taps Thankfully it is now under new ownership. They have cleared out the kitchen, put in new people and are slowly sorting the menus and adding a few touches here and there. I am delighted to report that it is working. My... More
