Eating out

Here are some of our favourite local haunts:

Hare and Hounds, Lothersdale – nearest to the house (was closed for major kitchen renovation during summer 2018)

Alexander’s, Skipton – stunning new restaurant at the top of the town’s High Street with fab gardens over looking the canal.

Tempest Arms in Elslack Reviews

The Angel at Hetton – award winning celebration restaurant, good value, on the road to Grassington near the village where the original Calendar Girls live

Devonshire Brasserie, Bolton Abbey

22 The Square, Crosshills – another great local restaurant that our guests always give great feedback about, Italian cuisine.

The Dog and Gun Inn, Malsis – comfortable, traditional Yorkshire food and more

Booking would be recommended for a large party especially at the weekend
