The Cock & Bottle – 2012

Posted on Updated on

Night Reviewed: Tuesday

We promised we’d come back here and give them another chance following an unexpected disappointing review, and we’ve been true to our word.

We are very glad we did, as this visit was a pleasure. We were immediately greeted by the friendly bar man and set about choosing from the good selection of ales on offer. We plumped for a pint of Goose Eye Brewery Best Bitter and a pint of Ilkley Best.

This time the beer quality was excellent – kept perfectly and very tasty indeed. The atmosphere was great for a Tuesday evening – it was quite busy and some decent music was playing in the background.

There was also a dog in attendance – and a pub which allows dogs is ok with us (and for fans of dogs in pubs you may want to head over to here when you’ve done reading our blog: http://dogsinpubs.com/).

There was also a sign advertising live music – this is one thing many pubs in Skipton lack, so this is a welcome change. It looks like there’s a new food menu too, so well worth giving that a try if you find yourselves here.

This pub has always rated very highly for us, so we are very glad to see that it’s back on form. Our only gripe this time around is the chalk board in the loos has disappeared – but we aren’t rating the bogs this time so we’ll let that one slide ;-).

Warm atmosphere, original features, friendly service and good beer. Everything a good pub needs.

Great news all round.

    Good call on coming back, the cock and bottle is one of the best pubs in skipton. The beer is fantastic and the bar staff are some of the best i have come across.
