About The Castle Inn

Skipton is a fairly ancient place – the castle dates back to the 12th Century – and, while The Castle Inn is not as old as that, they’ve certainly been there for a decent amount of time as well. The building that they occupy on Mill Bridge in the centre of Skipton was built in the 1800s and their menu is steeped in British and Yorkshire classics that everyone can enjoy. From the coast comes Whitby scampi, Yorkshire Dales lamb’s liver and onion, roast beef with Yorkshire puddings, locally-sourced game meat gamekeeper’s pie among others. Throw in a few sharing platters, a lunch menu, a selection of small plates and, of course, a fully-stocked bar with local ales and an extensive wine list. Reserve a table and head on over to Skipton town centre, right by the famous castle, and The Castle Inn.

Excellent choice of tasty food. Plenty of choice for our vegan son. Service of drinks and food also quickly served by polite competent staff. Will return!

"Feedback" and "Reviews" have now reach the ultimate in ridiculousness - I reserve a pub lunch - and you need a review!! PLEASE, OK I will humor you - It was the most fantastic Fish & Chips I have ever had in my entire 73 years on this planet - and everyone should go there at the earliest opportunity.

Came specifically for the vegan menu, as being brought up in a very meat orientated family, who love traditional British fare, I have always found it difficult to enjoy a good meal with them. Thus, the fact that this pub catered for both was amazing. I honestly had no idea what to expect, but wow, I was stunned. I and the tofish and then the salted caramel tart with nice cream, which I could not finish!!! Very unlike me. My father, a life long fish and chip eater and vegan sceptic, tried both and even claimed the tofish was "too fishy", which from him, is a huge review. Thank you so much. The staff were really awesome, too. Will absolutely be coming again!! No doubt about it!

We ordered from the Vegan menu, food took around 40-45 minutes to come out. The Tofish and chips was excellent, very much like the real thing. The 'Pulled Pork' and Falafel burger was OK, the falafel wasn't cooked properly and was still doughy, no breadcrumbs to give it that crips to it. The Cheezecake had a base with dates I think, it wasn't very nice at all, the ice cream was excellent, loved it. The waitress who served us was brilliant and offered us another desert when we told her we didn't like the cheezecake which was very nice of her. One thing that put me off was the fact the pub was dog friendly, and there were people with 2 dogs next to us, the dogs jumped up them a few times and the thought of dog hairs and germs flying around isn't something that I would consider acceptable. Would I go back? I would like to try more food off the menu definitley, but having dogs there makes me not want to.

Great meal and service, we go for the Vegan menu, which is pretty astonishing. Just a word of warning - if you are going for the amazing Vegan 'To-Fish' and Chips, which is the best fish and chips I've had ever, vegan, vegetarian or carniverous, either go early, or give them a ring to pre-book your actual meal. We arrived at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon and they'd sold out of the To-Fish. Sob. I'm sure it's not the same everyday, but on busy summer weekends, it will be worth it!

Lovely pub in skipton. As a vegan I couldn't be happier, a fabulous menu with so much choice, generous portions and proper pub grub (vegan style) - delicious and filling and a good hearty plate of food. Lovely service, friendly and attentive. My friends ate of the regular menu and thought it was lovely too, they had a roast dinner with all the trimmings and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely be back again on our next trip to Yorkshire!

Reception, service, quality of homecooking and the choice and condition of real ale were all first-class! My only reason for not awarding 6 and excellent is that some of the tables are too narrow to accommodate 4 people comfortably as the table mats overlap the edges of the tables when 4 people are dining around 1 table. Otherwise, Mine Host, Calvin, ticks all the boxes and get everything right. The best food & beer in Skipton!

Very disappointed with the Castle, we ordered 3 Sunday lunches, 2 x lamb and 1 x beef. The food was poor, one of the lamb meals was cold and had to be re heated ( not a fresh one I must point out ) , the other one had what I can only describe as minuscule amount of lamb and was also returned. When they arrived back the " crispy goose fat " roast potatoes were completely not that, one of the meals had no roast and the other had what can only be described as a roast from last Sunday on it, we complained again but having already waited nearly 50 minutes couldn't be bothered waiting again. Certainly won't be returning

Would like to go back when it is not so busy. Even the simple starters took a very long time to appear. Was very nice when it did though. My daughters first choice not available. Then her first choice of main course was not available. The blueberry cheesecake was quite tasteless and still mostly frozen. Great to see so many Vegan choices.

Unfortunately at last minute had to cancel but will definitely book as we have heard great reports. With veggie daughter and vegan grandson the new vegan menu means we can all eat out as a family - great for next celebration.

There was a good choice of food on the vegan menu, the food was delicious and the waitress service was very good. If you're vegan and looking for good quality pub food then you would enjoy the Castle Inn. I and my friends highly recommend it.

Simply epic vegan food....what can I say, go there, see for yourselves. Ice cream, tofish and chips, a huge burger, just go and eat till you burst. Redefines vegan eating out. Thanks to the very helpful staff also.

Great food, big portions too! Went with a friend who is vegan and there was a big variety of choices for her, which was nice for her as most places only have 1 choice of vegan meals.

Bit worried when we got there I had booked for 8pm and they had us down for 7pm but fortunate they still had a free table. Food was good very large portions though. Great Vegan menu.

We had a lovely meal at the Castle recently. The service was friendly and quick, the food was very good, and there was a great atmosphere in the pub. We would definitely visit again.

The Castle provided a delicious and hearty vegan food menu for "Veganuary". We had a butternut and spinach lasagne, and a hazelnut and mushroom stew. The service was friendly and efficient and the pub atmosphere lively with a good vibe.

it's amazing that a place will offer so many great vegan options, I visited 3 times and each times they had sold out of significant parts of the menu which was unfortunate. Also I'm fairly convinced the lasagne dish contained dairy because I was ill afterwards (lacto intolerant vegan)
