Following our success in Leeds, we decided to open a second bar in nearside Victorian Spa town Ilkley and our second bar opened in 2015. We refurbed the beautiful old Ilkley Gazette offices ensuring we kept many of their unique features. We installed a log burner in the back room, have two beer gardens - one in front and one out the back. There is also a beautiful basement area with private access onto the back beer garden. 

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we can only take bookings up to a maximum of 6 people. From one household inside, multiple households are allowed in our outdoor areas.  We have just added large parasols outside the front of the building with heat lamps, meaning you can still meet your friends outside under cover from rain and hopefully staying nice and warm. 

Walk-ins are welcome but we are unable to accept any groups which are over 6.

Please phone (01943 604344) or email to book a table. 

There is currently no drinking or ordering at the bar - we operate table service only.

The basement is available for group & corporate bookings, we are also able to host networking events. If you are interested in our basement for private hire then please get in touch with your requirements. We can take future bookings, but whether events go ahead depends on current government advice and we will be reviewing things on a regular basis. Due to this some events may not be able to go ahead.
