The Black Horse is a traditional pub on Skipton high street. It has a restaurant and a canal side patio.
The pub attracts a young crowd in the evening but when I went in it was just usual daytime punters

After exploring the Castle i had to drag Vicki around the canal side path to look at the back of the castle, we saw this pub on the way to the canal and as when we on the side of the canal it started to rain really hard, I was all ready to carry on looking around and getting wet but Vicki dragged me into this pub and forced a pint of lager into my hand, i did protest but of course i got nowhere.
It's a nice pub and great to call in for a drink, (they don't do food) they have a good collection of leaflets you can pick up and it's clean and smells nice. (unlike many pubs)
i finally managed to drag Vicki out of the pub after she had drank a large, LARGE! pot of tea and we continued to explore Skipton.
This is a nice cosy little pub situated right next door to the Church. We called in here for a drink and a chance to shelter from the Great British Weather (it was raining cats and dogs)! They do not serve food here but I did notice an old singer sewing machine in the corner so maybe the allow you to repair your clothes while you quench your thirst!
A lovely Yorkshire pub in the centre of town offering a variety of local ales and international beverages,serves food during lunchtime.Friendly staff and reasonable prices.
Pub is a freehouse.
The name Cock and Bottle was once quite a common name for public houses and believed to refer to the availability of liquor in draught or bottle form,the cock being the name of the tap in front of the barrel.The actual date of building this particular pub is as yet unknown,however there has been a building on this site from the late 17th century and would have certainly been in existance at the time of the building of the Leeds-Liverpool canal through Skipton.It is rumored that a certain type of lady would entertain the navvies in the small rooms up in the gables seen at the front of the building.It has been observed that the rooms are not very high but,then again,if they were put to a certain use,would not have needed to be.
