Went to the Vaults for lunch and we both had a beef sandwich. It was one of the best we have had. Beautifully cooked roast and so tender and tasty with plenty of powerful horseradish. High quality and three large slices. Yum.

We called into the Vaults last night as the Riverside Hotel garden was too busy and we had a dog so needed to sit outside. The menu was incredibly limited and in the end we ordered a beef burger each on the premise that you can't go wrong - but wrong we were ! it was totally bland and tasteless,... More

I take my parents here each time I'm up. Absolutely not the poshest eatery in Ilkley and doesn't try to be. But does do good ingredients cooked just right. The folks swear by the fish and chips and i do like Lishman's steak.

Reserved and had a very nice table near the open fire in the main room. The Vaults [Taps] has been in Ilkley for a long time and has a good, traditional pub atmosphere. The menu was good and varied. The wine list was OK but not as good as before. The selection of beers remains good. We all went for... More

I have been to the Vaults for food a number of times and it has always been excellent. There is usually a good selection of beers on and there is also an extensive gin menu - my favourite gin is the Edinburgh Rhubarb and Ginger gin which is served with a garnish of crystalised ginger. I most recently went to... More

I was invited as a guest to join a Christmas Day lunch, having been here before I was really looking forward to it. The main course I'd chosen was the turkey dinner, it was awful. The roast potatoes were solid, the sprouts were hard, the gravy was like water and the turkey looked like it had been steamed not roasted.... More

We booked The Vaults for a meal with family last Saturday having looked at the website and on arrival wondered whether we were in the wrong place. The pictures of the food on the website are unrepresentative of the food that is actually served. The menu was far more limited and basic than the website depicts. There was also a... More

I've never come across anywhere that has a menu listing of what is 'Not Gluten Free' NGF and there's not much that isn't. What a wonderful ethos and a welcome, refreshing change and will be a relief to many who live with this diet. I had fish and chips and it was yummy excellent. So much choice for a change... More

Service great, good menu choice. Sunday lunch delicious, perfect portion size and very tasty. Lovely atmosphere families and dogs welcome, roaring fires in the winter which makes it really cosy. Well done favorite Sunday lunch in the area so far!
