Disappointing. Pleasant service but the staff need training. Not enough knowledge of the food. Overpriced wine. Such a disappointment because under the last owner the food was outstanding making this a venue you could take visiting friends to with pride. It's just bog standard food...More

Thank you to all the staff on 24 June. We came here for drinks after going to Piccolinos my mum's 50th birthday and the staff were so helpful and lovely to deal with! The igloos are stunning - everyone fell in love with them.

Disinterested staff, a long wait to eat and so-so food. Under the previous incumbents this was probably my favourite pub in Ilkley. No more.

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.
