A nice feel to the pub, with a number of areas for eating and drinking. Food is largely traditional British but with a 'chefy' twist. In our experience the twist doesnt really work. For instance having a fried chicken kiev on a bed of mash. Also things like green beans not being 'top and tailed', sausages been a bit wrinkly... More

A lovely local pub located in the centre of Skipton, a busy market town. The room was very comfortable and well equipped and the restaurant offered a wide range of choice. For real ale lovers the Woolly Sheep offers a good range of Timothy Taylor beers.
