We tend to visit for a drink rather than a meal but every couple of months we'll call in for a quick meal and it's always really nice. I think they share the kitchen with bistro Pierre so they offer some of the same dishes, the food is great and served quickly. The Inn has a cosy atmosphere, it can... More

Been here a few times, always friendly bar staff and decent food, better than most pub food. If you've an hour to spare one afternoon while your fiance is wedding dress shopping buy a paper pop in, grab a pint and sit by the fire. If your lucky someone will have a dog too.

We called for a quick drink and after spotting some of the food coming out of the kitchen decided to stay on for lunch and were so glad we had. Me and my husband shared a platter of tapas that included olives, humous, roasted peppers & cheese to name but a few. The star of the plate though were the... More

Two birthdays in February. Mine and my daughter’s mother in law. Both of us live in the North East. My daughter and son in law live in the North West. Ilkley seemed a good half-way point to meet for a birthday lunch. And my daughter has a dog so the venue has to be dog-friendly. Looked at various reviews and... More

If you want a good pint without the frills then this is the place to head to. It's also dog friendly in the pub part so take your well behaved 4 legged friend with you

Top pub. Excellent range of beers. Good wine list. Good value food. Best staff in Ilkley. Intelligent clientele. If in Ilkley, also worth visiting Flying Duck, Bar t'at and Friends of Ham but The Crescent is the best.

This was a little disappointing on our recent visit. We shared a burger and fish and chips and they were both ok. The burger could have being a little more tasty but at least was home-made. The chips were good but the peas with the fish were very dry and seemed warned up. The fish was ok but the batter... More
