Although tucked away down a side street from the famous Grove, Moneyman's was well worth finding. Not many people there when we dined (although we noted it was full the following night) but still very pleasant setting. 3-course fixed dinner menu available Tuesday-Friday and good...More

Very slow service. 90 mins for starter to arrive. Main courses over cooked with vegetables coming five minutes later. The lady proprietor was not receptive to our polite comments and so we will never return. £200 lesson for owner and customer

We've been visiting Monkman's for many years now and we still consider it the best dining experience in Ilkley (unless you need a curry of course!). Mike and Joelle are great hosts, their staff are polite and accommodating and obviously well trained. The food is...More
