We called in without booking on a very busy day with the Christmas market in Skipton. Lovely gentleman behind the bar couldn't of been more helpful and attentive in finding us a table for 2. We had the set menu, main and dessert, food was exceptional and the Merlot wine was superb, A fantastic find, we will be returning.

Our main reason for going to Skipton is to have lunch here, the quality of the food is very good, the cooking is very good and the service is excellent. The wine list is biased towards the wines of the Loire, which is no bad thing, as there are many excellent wines from this region which usually receive little credit... More

AMAZING food - plus the best Sunday roast in the area! Friendly staff - nice atmosphere - and not especially expensive. GREAT restaurant.

Great choice of wine but a menu that was very English. Would go back there to try the boeuf bourginnon. ....

French restaurant this is not. Starter & wine ok, main well what was the tasteless sauce over everything two different mains same sauce, sure just out of a packet? free dessert not a lot better. Just seen review "Hit n miss" this sure was a miss & at close to £100.00 they are having a laugh but it's not funny.

iv been here 5-6 times now. On a good day its fantastic, the foods great, service is good. But MORE often than not the food is the opposite end of the spectrum, service also. Not sure its worth the gamble to be honest. So inconsistent. Its as if you have to avoid the staff parties from previous nights! But dont... More

Four of us dined here for an Anniversary. 6:30 on a Friday evening. Service, ambience, food and wine all superb. Have visited before for Lunch which we had downstairs then. Nothing much more to say is there.

Very good service and I had poached haddock on a bed of mashed potatoes and spinach on hollandaise sauce. It was well cooked and very tasty with a good sized portion. Unfortunately it was not very hot but I didn't send it back but made the staff aware of it.

Thank Graham R
