Popped into this pub a couple of times when we stayed the weekend in Otley. Nice sunny outside sitting area. Friendly staff and nice busy atmosphere.

Nice outside garden, next to busy street but lovely on the sunny days. Chain pub so food and drinks àre cheap but very good. Wide sort of beers, nice service. Very busy on weekend days but you can't miss a view on Chevin

Always love a Wetherspoons. They let my friend and I share a meal, even brought a spare plate and cutlery. Nothing nicer than a beer garden in the sunshine, watching the world go by.
