Sometimes simple polite attentive staff is all you need to feel comfortable and welcome. We have been before and it was extremely busy, but on a Tuesday late lunch time you could have been tempted to think as it was quiet move on! But don't the food is really good, decent portions without being out facing. I had my first... More

We ate a Sunday roast here and even though there was only the choice of 'beef', it was thoroughly delicious, arrived promptly and was good value at c £9.

Called here for a change. Lovely Sunday lunch, nice crisp vegetables and good portions of sliced beef, homemade roasties and Yorkshire puds. The other food being brought out was also of good portion size, the pies looked interesting and again homemade. Lovely selection of ales and lagers to accompany the food. Puddings were a good size and very reasonably priced.... More

We were in Skipton just for the weekend and came in for the beer... The Narrow Boat gets a good write up in the Good Beer Guide... and it didn't disappoint! Beers kept really well... wish we'd taken the time to eat too.

Great find; arrived in Skipton after travelling all day with the dog. Friendly staff, great beer selection and scrummy pie. Water and treats for the dog too. Recommended

Try to visit this place whenever I am in Skipton. It has always been a friendly and charming place to sit with old friends and chew the fat. Good selection of beers and reasonable food. It remains the way it was when it opened, with a few changes here and there. Unlike other pubs you can trust it to deliver... More

I've just been to Skipton for a change with my wife and our daughter for a browse around the shops and lunch. A few months ago I'd walked around the back of the shops to move our car and spotted this place and decided to try it next time we were around. We had our lunch here and we're very... More

Lovely pub nestled down an ally off the bottom of the high street. Great range of beers and good food.

Popped in for a quick drink with our dog. Great atmosphere, lovely knowledgeable bar staff. We didn't eat but the food looked amazing. Dog treats on the bar and feminine products for free in the spotless toilets. Top marks

Been here twice now, the first time my lovely lady had the game pie so I had to have a burger (which was excellent). This time I was determined to have it and I did. Worth the wait! Her steak and ale pie was amazing too, you also get a jug of the best gravy ever! The pies are just... More
