Very good restaurant. Is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Very good, especially for special occasions.
Visited the box tree to try the six course taster menu. It was simply brilliant with every course providing a lovely surprise. Some people might say things are a bit formal, but we prefer the word special. Would we eat there regularly if we lived nearer? No I don't think we would simply because the box tree is special and...

I wanted something really special as a treat for my partner and we’d driven past the Box Tree so many times and always fancied it so we thought we’d give it a try. It’s very evident that the people that work there and run it try very hard to provide a good experience, but for us it failed on some... More

We had a weekend in Ilkley to allow us to visit the Box Tree, our first visit despite intending to dine here for a couple of decades or so. We had the least expensive of the menus and the bill including a bottle of Sauvingnon Blanc, a glass of Malbec and pre dinner drinks was £160 with tip. The restaurant... More

Food quality very ordinary and meagre portions, service too formal but efficient. I had known about The Box Tree for a long time but this was my first visit. Knowing how much I like my food my kids bought £150 of vouchers for this restaurant so that I could give it a try. I went for Sunday lunch with my... More

We had the six course gourmand taster menu and every course was exceptional. You simply could not fault this restaurant. The location, the food, the staff, the building were all excellent. The soufflé was outstanding - I've never seen such a high soufflé and the taste was gorgeous. It was well worth the two hour drive down to Ilkley from... More
