About the Pub

A beautifully refurbished historic traditional-style pub close to the town centre. Originally constructed as a farmhouse in 1709, this is reputed to be Ilkley's oldest pub building. It was re-opened in late 2013 under its current name, a reference to a previous name. This Grade-II Listed building retains many of its original features, such as, Yorkstone and oak flooring, beamed ceilings, internal stonework and mullioned windows. Up to eight real ales, including four regular ales (three from the house brewery) and always including a porter or stout, and two real ciders are available. Wharfedale Brewery is located in a barn to the rear and tours can be arranged. The first floor function room includes a bar and is free to hire. There is an outside terrace to the rear. Walkers, runners and cyclists are welcome as are well-behaved dogs. Food is served Tuesday to Sunday and also on Bank Holiday Mondays.
