Rob Hunter left this review about The Boathouse Bar

Visited last week. Six hand pulls at the bar, offering an interesting range including some strong ales (7-8%). Backed up by a selection of keg beers, for which there is a chalk menu above the bar.

In the corner furthest away from the bar there is a wood burner, which was in use at the time of my visit and made the place feel warm and cosy. Bench seating around the perimeter which was comfortable. Plenty of windows to look out at the views of the water. I found the service to be friendly and welcoming. I didn't see any sign of food being served other than the usual bar snacks, but that said I wasn't after a meal so I wasn't on the lookout.

Much as I was tempted by the stronger ales, I settled for the Tiller Pin by Wishbone, which may well be a regular ale based on the previous reviews. A half of this set me back £1.75 and was in top-notch condition.

A place I would seek out again when in Skipton, though I imagine it can get busy in the summer months.

The owner told us that this canal basin gets extremely busy during the summer, so luckily for us, visiting here, out of season. This is a very pleasant pub with large surrounding windows, which gave good views of the activities along the canal. There were five ales on handpump on our visit, which were Wishbone Tiller Pin, Bad Co Love over Gold, Salamander Dusk til Dawn, Settle No3 Porter and Wishbone N-Star-2. We went for the Wishbone Tiller Pin and Bad co, the latter was so good we stayed for another.

A small canalside pub. The interior is a curved room with the bar to the left. A friendly little place and food is available. There are 5 handpumps and beers were from Bad Co., Saltaire, Irwell, Settle and Wishbone today.
