“Great location, great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Clevedon is a little way out of town on the Ben Rhydding side. You certainly won't stumble across it.
It's part of Audley Court retirement village but visitors can use the restaurant.

The food is modern, well presented, freshly cooked & the menu is varied to suit all tastes.
Service is first class, not too obtrusive yet attentive.

The decor is excellent; they have employed the services of a very good interior designer to come up with a style that is modern, comfortable, interesting & has a wow factor.

The views on a clear day over the Wharfe Valley are superb & you can dine on the terrace in good weather.

As other reviewers have indicated, the restaurant is quiet because of its location out of Ilkley & its situation as part of a retirement village.
It deserves to be busier & never fails to delight visitors.
Do try it.

“Superb for any occaision.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The fantastic Clevedon Bistro staff have assisted me in arranging a surprise birthday party for my Mother this week. It was clear to me right from the start of the planning stage that the club manager, Zoe, was friendly and knowledgeable and would be able to deliver a well planned and executed event. She made sure that the elegant restaurant was beautifully decorated and that all the guests were welcomed in a warm and friendly manner. I was able to meet with the Clevedon head chef, Simon, to discuss my requirements and he then went on to create a truly scrumptious and varied buffet that was enjoyed by all. The serving and bar staff were all smartly turned out and delivered a professional and attentive service. Overall it is obvious to me that the Clevedon Bistro is well placed to offer a memorable visit to anyone - from a lone diner right up to a large party group. The food and ambiance are superb and i would heartily recommend a visit there to everyone. Thank you all for your hard work - a great success.

“Healthy Eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We attended a talk presented in the restaurant by head chef, Simon, on healthy eating. It was very informative and we learned a great deal about the nutritional benefits of well-balanced meals. Simon is well on top of his job, sources his food from very reliable, local producers and, having eaten in the restaurant on a previous occasion, we know he also presents his dishes very attractively. Today we enjoyed a complimentary pancake served with yogurt, fresh biberries and maple syrup ........ Very nice too! We also like the spacious and tasteful decor, the views and the absence of piped music in the bistro and restaurant, enabling pleasant conversation without having to compete with music. Oh, and al the staff are courteous and charming!

“Very Classy, Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a great little restaurant - very friendly, relaxed and good food. It is quiet as it is quite far out of town but services the old people accommodation of which it is surrounded very well. It's a recommended place to eat.

“Love the decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

A really beautifully decorated restaurant with gorgeous views over Ilkley. It is located in a posh retirement village so very suitable for older diners, but there were younger clients, including a baby, when we visited. Food was quite good although we only had two mains. My main course was pork on skewers, accompanied by an out-of-his-world sauce and excellent chips. My husband had minute steak, although slightly tough, he loved his chips too and doesn't usually. Service was a bit slow, but it was probably not the fault of the waitress, as she was friendly and polite, so I think it was the kitchen. A table nearby was waiting a long time for dessert, although they looked good when they arrived. We decided to opt out of dessert because of the waiting time. It was reasonably priced and we hope to return and maybe have that dessert.
