“great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Went on sat the 12th jan, lovely inviting place. Checked in about 2 o,clock then sampled a pint of landlord that was in good nick. The rooms were lovely and were decorated tastefully. The place is very decieving from from the front, it has a nice snug then the bar in the middle and restaurant at the back. We had evening meal which was very good. I had lamb shank which fell off the bone, the breakfast in the morning was very tasty. Going to go back in the summer to check out the beer garden at the back.
If your going in jan or feb go on tim taylors website and print the voucher off, it gives you 20% off the food!

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Our fave pub in Skipton. Food is lovely and my partner loves the Timothy Taylor ales. Had a fab lunch here this week, don't think we've ever been disappointed with the food. I asked about their Valentines menu which they hadn't got ready yet but the lovely waitress came back to get my email address so she can email the details when theyve been confirmed. I thought that was a nice touch.

“Great food, great service. Top Marks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visited The Woolly Sheep for a family get together between Christmas and New Year. We were lucky to be able to get in as we only booked on the day for 12 of us. As my brother lives in Skipton it is a place he visits regularly, but for most of our party it was their first visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Most of us had three courses but as portions were generous, some of us missed the dessert course. The choices are varied, so the traditional amongst our family were able to find something to tempt them. But for the more adventurous there is also a good choice. All meals were really well presented and despite it being a big table, everyone was served promptly without anyone having to wait. Prices are very reasonable especially as portions are very generous. There is also a specials board which adds to the choices on the menu. We all enjoyed our meals and will certainly return when we are next in Skipton. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We met our niece here for a meal on a Sunday evening. She had been recommended the food by a friend of hers who lives in Skipton. The welcoming atmosphere as you enter is second to none. There is plenty of choice on the menu to suit every taste and the staff are so pleasant. Will definitely return when in the area next.
