    The Black Horse: A deceptivley large pub!

    The Black Horse
    1 more image

    This great pub is on the high street and does at first seem quite small untill you go in and find that it stretches right back to a second bar and to a terraced seating area overlooking the canal. I would think that it gets really busy on a Friday and Saturday nights.
    The interior has some really thick walls indicating that it is quite an old building.
    Vicki fancied a cake and a coffee and upon looking at the dessert menu she opted for treacle tart and custard, i did not want anything but as it is 2 for 1 on desserts i opted for treacle tart as well. They came and although they did not look to good (vicki's looked ok because it was smothered in custard) they tasted great and i could have eaten another one easily.

    The main meal menu also looked really nice and there was a special offer on those aswell

    The Tempest Arms: Aaaah a roaring fire...

    The Tempest Arms

    The Tempest Arms is a great historic pub which is situated in a village called Elslack just a few miles from Skipton. The Pub caught our eyes on the way into Skipton & we knew we had to pay it a visit on the way back. The Inn is named after the Tempest family who lived in nearby Broughton Hall Sinc the 12th Century.

    We called in on a rainy, blustery November day & couldn't be more impressed by the heat of the roaring open fire as we stepped through the door. There is some really cosy seating in the bar area with a smart restaurant area to the rear. The food menu here really did look fantastic but sadly they were not serving food while we were there :-((

    On looking at the website, the Tempest Arms offers some great looking accomadation and also conference facilities.

    The Black Horse: A huge place

    The Black Horse

    This was our last pit stop during our visit to Skipton. I really did fancy a coffee and a cake (to replace all the calories I had burned during the day..lol) but then caught sight of the desert menu & was drawn to the treacle pudding & custard. Poor Gareth had to have one aswell as they were two for the price of one!! The main meal menu looked really nice too and during the time of our visit there was a special offer on meals too. The Treacle pudding was nice and sticky and really did the job in warming me up on a wet and windy November day. There is plenty of seating in this pub, it seems to go on forever. Even though we did not venture outside, there is also a nice patio area overlooking the canal.

    Favorite Dish: Treacle pudding - Yum.

    Buffers: Cafe for train buffs

    by Britannia2 Updated Jul 17, 2010
    Buffers

    This is a real hidden gem of a cafe and is part of Back o' Th'Hill Farm at Storriths just outside Skipton on the Bolton Abbey to Harrogate road but well worth finding. You can eat outside or inside - wonderfully cool on a hot day. Milk and other produce from the farm is used in the cafe and the cooking is real home made cooking from baked potatoes to hot and cold sandwiches . salads, soups , cream teas and a good selection of drinks.
    The scenery outside is stunning.
    Upstairs is given over to a large model railway that has unfortunalty seen better days and is a little dusty and mainly disused although a few trains do work when operated by visitors. A wasted opportunity.
    Good selection of railway books and model railway items plus a good general giftshop.
    Open 10.30 -17.00 but closed Mondays (not Bank Holidays though).

    The pub is situated in the centre of Skipton. I popped in for a quick drink, the place seemed full with tourists & locals. I was impressed by the interior decor & welcoming atmosphere.

    The pub has a wide range of Timothy Taylor real ales & a varied selection of homemade pub meals.

    We found this place by accident after coming out from Craven Court shopping center. Right away we knew that this will be a good place to have the lunch as there was queue all the way out. Most of the people in the queue where old, retired women... so it had to be a good place!

    The place was crowded but the service was rather quick and friendly.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered a lamb roast and an other roast. They both were excellent!

    Black Horse: Like the Tardis....

    Large glasses of wine....

    This place is just enormous. A friend of ours took us here for a drink and after entering the small front door, the place just went on and on until eventually you got to the back and then you could sit outside on a patio, overlooking the Leeds - Liverpool canal.

    It was a lovely day, although getting on a bit we decided to take advantage of the sunshine and sat outside. I was amazed how busy this place was, mainly with locals, on a Sunday afternoon at 4.30pm. How could they all afford to be here?

    As I said, we only had a drink (the wine came in .25 litre glasses!!) but there was a decent enough menu with the usual grills etc and a meal deal for two at £7.50.

    Must be pleasant on a summer's evening but we were frozen by the time we left!

    Cock and Bottle: Pleasant Enough

    Cheese and bacon baguette
    2 more images

    Skipton has a fair few pubs offering lunch-time fayre. Which one to choose was the problem? In the end, after perusing a few menus, we opted for the Cock and Bottle, just off the High Street and opposite a large Co-op.

    We were a little concerned that we were the only clientele, but it was only 12.15pm. By the time we left, a few more customers had arrived.

    A pleasant enough interior with a nice large table by the window which we grabbed. Good fun watching the world go by outside. The barman was very friendly and we really enjoyed the music, quietly playing in the background; a few old Who numbers had us singing away!!!

    The menu was good enough, sandwiches, baguettes, burgers with various additions, the usual grills, sausages and mash and quite a few veggie dishes. Nothing too fancy, but then we don't go for fancy at lunchtime.

    Favorite Dish: In the end, we were totally boring and had the cheese and bacon hot baguette (£3.95), a huge cheeseburger(£4.75) and predictable Nick had the big breakfast.(£5.25.) The food was properly cooked, beautifully hot and really, we had no complaints. I think, for Skipton, the prices were reasonable.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    we went to the woolly sheep on a friday evening, we were seated at the back in the dining area and were shown some menus. my first thought was "oh dear run of the mill pub food" i ordered the special of the day beef stroganof and my boyfriend ordered steak and chips (thats all he eats so most of my restaurant reviews will include steak and chips at some point!) the meals arrived and were huge! and i mean really huge! my stroganof was lovely lots of very tender beef in a lovely sauce with rice and salad - and not just a small side salas with half a slice of cucumber and tomato - a proper salad. martyns steak was cooked to perfection and it had real home cooked chips! yummy! lots of onion ring and also a big salad!
    i had also stupidly ordered a side order of garlic bread as i was starving but i could only manage one piece!

    Favorite Dish: garlic bread! its my favourite thing.............. plus it keeps the vampires away!
