Visited last week. 8 hand pulls at the bar, of which 7 were on. At the time of my visit the line-up was Titanic White Star, Titanic Cherry Dark, Okells Bitter, Tim Taylor Landlord, Osset King Rat, Ilkley Mary Jane and Mobberley Elysium. I went for the Cherry Mild, at a not outrageous £2 for a half. In addition to the cask line-up there were several keg options including beers from Ilkley and Vocation.

In the main room there is bench seating - perhaps reclaimed church pews - with tables in front and low stools on the opposite side of the tables. There is a cosy dark corner which had the benefit of having a radiator hidden behind it, which was rather welcome. I did not find the seating in this corner to be particularly comfortable as it's not really deep enough to get your arse on, and it is pretty upright so no chance of leaning back a bit. The seating in other parts of the room was of similar style, so can't imagine it being much more comfortable but you never know. I couldn't see myself staying here for a session and chilling out. There is a room off to the right as you enter, which appeared to be more geared up towards dining, and the toilets are accessed through here. There is a staircase in the main bar, but I didn't investigate. The gents were modern and perfectly acceptable. There was a lady in with a baby, so is presumably family friendly.

Happy to have tried it and it was nice to see a bit of variety at the pumps.

Long narrow space split into two rooms, still with eight pulls so the same as the old Market Town Tavern days, the service wasn’t the friendliest but it’s never been a favourite of mine in Skipton. Not sure who owns it these days. My Kirkstall Black Band had a slight taste of Plum Porter, so maybe that was last through that line. Can’t say it’s improved over the seven years since my last review.

What an excellent little place. Hidden down a narrow alleyway this place can be easily missed, which is a shame. The place is on two floors, though I never ventured upstairs. The ground floor is a single room and the bar has 8 handpulls with a good variety of styles on. Not very local breweries supplied the beer today but that's only a minor quibble. Another quibble is the price. A bit on the expensive side but as this was a first visit I didn't mind too much.
