What a beautiful area along the river. Great spot for taking a walk or having a picnic. There is plenty of free parking nearby which is a bonus.

Visited Ilkley with my wife to take dog for a walk along the riverbank. Hot day so went for a pint. Pizza menu looked inviting, so decided to share. Great value and taste.
