Over all highly recommended.

we came here on a whim and enjoyed everything our experience.

i do have to say that we did not expect a great deal as uk tex mex / bbq restaurants 99% of the time don't even understand the type of food that they are trying to serve however Calico jack hit the mark on a number of levels.

we shall deff return just for the pulled pork and chilled beer

We visited as a party of nice (including 3 children) after booking in advance - on arrival the welcome was very friendly from the staff and we were seated in the middle of the pirate-themed restaurant on a long table.

Orders were taken efficiently and the food subsequently arrived in good time. I have a few minor gripes about certain things (garlic bread was a little bland, burgers very salty) but on the whole it was a nice meal and the issues I've mentioned didn't tarnish things to the point where I felt the need to mention them. I only do so now as constructive criticism and to share my experience with others.

I hungrily opted for the "Jack Sparrow" burger which is a double - aside from the salty taste (perhaps part of the theme of being at sea?) it was nice enough. Too big to eat as a burger but easy to dismantle. Fellow diners opted for steak and ribs and I became rather envious after trying some of the rib, very tender and well seasoned with lots of meat on them - a definite for next time.

All in all a nice experience, generous portions and good service - just one note, walking in and out past the outdoor seating means you have to swim through a fog of cigarette smoke, tables near the door should be non-smoking to help contain this in my opinion.

Bar and restaurant, opened at 5pm on a friday, we turned up at 9.15pm to be abruptly told by a waiter "we are closed". No explaination, no apology. Disgraceful. Shall not be trying again. Plenty of dining in Skipton who do want your business.

Three of us went to eat at Calico Jacks. We have been before but never written a review so I felt it was about time I did. My stepdaughter and I had meals from the early bird menu. She had a pizza which she really enjoyed (took half home in a box.) I had the pulled pork sandwich which was melt in your mouth delicious. My husband had the barbecue ribs and he declared it one of the best meals he has ever had - he cleared his plate. We had a couple of cocktails which made a change to the usual drinks and as it was before 7pm they were half price.The service was very good and I think the owner has got it spot on as he was attentive but not overbearing. We are looking forward to our next visit already.
