Not a lot has changed since my last review in 2014, there’s been a widening on the beer range to 9 pulls and 10 keg taps on one of them horseshoe shaped pipe things, some of the kegs are unusual, the cask is mostly from Wharfedale with a guest from Dark Horse and a mango cider. The toilets look new and there’s a neat display of old Ilkley photos in the corridor leading to them. Events are held in the upper floor; “The Loft”. I can understand Wharfedale beers not being to all tastes, mine was fine but the hops used imparted a slight burnt rubber flavour. The only Ilkley pub in the 2022 GBG.

My husband and I visited this ale house this afernoon. First visit since well before the start of the pandemic. We used to enjoy visiting so looked forward to returning.We had a couple of drinks each and we were a tad disappointed.My husband tried a guest ale and a Wharfedale beer and did not enjoy either beer. I had a couple of halves of the Pilsner. It was ok but I'd enjoyed tastier lagers.The place was also quieter than on previous visits.

A quiet two room pub, both rooms with people in at the time of my afternoon visit but still very quiet. This is a Wharfedale brew pub and there are three of their ales take the centre hand pulls on the bar (a blonde, bitter and a mild) accompanied by six guests (one of which was off).

I like to try the local beers whenever I can but I found the Wharfedale Blonde not to be anything special and I was left feeling I probably should have gone for one of the guest ales instead. I can't remember the full lineup of guests but it included the excellent Titanic Plum Porter.

There was a wood burning stove going in the main room. The gents were modern and clean. There is apparently a function room available for hire.

Definitely worth a look.
