Of late - tables are being resrved for football screenings, food quality is going downhill and also deals for loayal regulars were dropped cancelled through December to try and coin in for the Xmas trade. Also over Xmas a "tip your bar staff" jar has appeared and... More

Have moved nearby after only occasional visits previously. The bar is great for a well cared for pint from a good selection. The place can be busy at peak times but that all adds to the atmosphere and the staff do a great job. May have to be my local despite the stiff competition.

Love the ambiance of this bar with a good choice of beers and attentive bar staff to welcome you. We were here with friends on a Thursday for the curry night and we really enjoyed our Indian feast authentically created by Sach. Rob also deserves a mention for the helpful and refreshingly enthusiastic way he looked after us. No hesitation... More

At five o clock on a Friday the bar was buzzing and as a first time visitor bar staff were really helpful and offered samples of a wide selection of local beers. I really enjoyed Goose Eye. If you like a lively busy atmosphere and a range of beers with good honest pub food, good local support for the rugby... More

Probably the best kept beer in Ilkley. There's always a wide choice available, and we recently visited during their beer festival. Three pints were ten pounds and a free commemorative glass. If you like your real ale, this is the place for you. There are two large screens to watch sporting events, albeit the sound quality is a bit poor.... More

This is a great place for lunch. We visited a cold and wintry day and my wife was instantly taken by the mulled wine. The real ales were well kept and from the local Baildon brewery. We had a very good Fish and Chips at 7.95 and Macaroni Cheese at 8.50 which was very tasty but maybe a little heavy... More

Came here for a couple of drinks with the Mrs. About 8 taps on for cask ales at about standard price for what you get these days. Friendly staff, like the decor, didn't try the food but good for drinks and free WiFi!!!
