The food is well cooked and a very good selection is offered. The bar stocks a variety of difference beers, wines and spirits and you are made welcome even if it's only a coffee you require. Everyone is treated with respect and we love to eat here.

On this occasion, my meal was fine and the service very good but my wife had two courses which were not as described on the menu. She ordered a starter of salt and pepper squid which was burnt and dry and garnished... More

Pre booked Sunday lunch as we were only arriving in Skipton on Saturday evening. Had a good starter but the main course was superb. Roast beef and all the trimmings consisted of 2 large thick slices of medium cooked beef that was delicious. Good Yorkshire puddings, plenty of roast potatoes and veg. Staff were very friendly and a good atmosphere... More

This restaurant is great for a lunch that's a bit different but not too expensive. Staff are always pleasant and helpful. Haven't eaten in the evening but menu is good and heard good reviews from friends who have.

I visited this relaxed bistro with my husband and a friend for a late lunch a couple of weeks ago. Service was friendly and attentive without being fussy and all the food was beautifully presented and delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed and the seating arrangements comfortable. At 12.95 for two courses the menu du jour is good value and has... More

We have eaten at Le Bistro on numerous occasions over the last year or so and every time we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent and very good value, especially their Early Bird Menu. Last December we really enjoyed their special festive menu with all the little extra touches.... More

Stopped off here for a saturday lunch today. I had chicken ballotine, my wife had a pasta. Both were absolutely fantastic. Generous proportions: generously stuffed chicken parcel, lots of lovely al-dente vegetables, lashings of tasty gravy, delicious sliced rosemary potatoes for me; An equally tasty herb/crunchy veg/cheesy pasta for my wife, some of which came home with us afterwards as...
