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

Good morning Lizschramm, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry your visit was so far from a true reflection of our usual service and rest assured I'll be speaking to the kitchen and the staff who were on that day to get to the bottom of this. I have sent you a private message to offer further discussion. Many thaks... More

Fantastic selection of real ales. We had a sandwich for lunch with not much filling but the main meals looked nice.

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!!!

Because of the low ceiling and general build of this bar it is extremely noisy...the drinks are OK and a good meeting point for the Pierre Bistrol next door if you don't want to talk to you friends

Great bar with good atmosphere Lovely staff and barman certainly loved his job and knew his beer! We stayed for food and we were not disappointed particularly with the curry that was fab! The bar food is not fine dining (go next door to the sister restaurant for that) but good honest food.

Until a year we ate here on many occasions but this time it was disappointing. We booed for 12. 30 pm and arrived at 12. 15 pm for drinks with four friends we had not seen for years. The bar was deserted!! Eventually a very apologetic Bar Manager came to explain that none of his staff had turned up. Not... More

Dear Jacqueline Let me start by apologising for your disappointment regarding our recent performance. This was a total one off and completely unrepresentative of the service and quality we usually deliver. I can imagine your embarrassment when recommending and inviting your friends to come to us for what should have been an excellent lunch and can’t apologise enough for this.... More
