When I say cold I'm not referring to the temperature, this place has zero personality with uninterested staff, I had bangers and mash, while a simple meal it was very boring, I have had much much better.More

Boasting pride of place in Ilkley’s town centre is a wonderful building dating back to 1860. A grand entrance door way leads into a traditional yet contemporary English pub, copper top tables and a roaring fire (for the colder months) create a warm welcoming atmosphere, not to mention the authentic dark wood bar stocked with eight hand pulls and an extensive wine list.
