Our latest visit with some friends was a very pleasant surprise. The menu has certainly improved since our last visit, and there was a good variety of starters and main courses at reasonable prices. I chose a slow...

Food cooked and no fear of undercooking, or leaving without enjoying food. Observed: place busy, and people emptied plates, nothing to discourage me eat dish on menu and sufficient choice without going over...

I ate here recently for a family birthday and after being told how great it was I was really looking forward to eating there. We all had to order way in advance which for me 8 don't like because on the day didn't want what I new I had ordered, but understand why we had to do this as we...

We were looking for accommodation in Ilkley for one night so that we could visit the Box Tree restaurant.
