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.
when we went there was lots of vegan options which was excellent for the picky eaters! sadly I believe their vegan chef has left the pub so less vegan options. haven't been since I heard this so hope to be proved wrong!
The Castle Inn is amazing for vegans and vegetarians. There is a fantastic range of options available, all of which are delicious- I think by this stage I’ve tried all the vegan options but my favourite has to be the tofish and chips! The staff are helpful and friendly and the pub itself is cosy and homely.
Me & my partner travelled 20miles and we were very impressed! Fab vegan food & great service! Massive portions too. Can’t wait to try pudding next time 😍 I would def recommend.
