Good food, nice atmosphere and great staff. We had a burger and steak and ale pie, plus two glasses of red wine. It was busy as it was a Sunday, practically everyone was dining. Only rated it a 4 as the table we sat at wasn’t great but that was purely due to rocking up and seeing what was free!

I stayed for two nights and dined in the restaurant both nights. The room was very comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities. The food and service were excellent. All the staff were very welcoming and were happy to put my bike in a store room each night. Many thanks and I will stay there again when I am next in Skipton.

Thumbs up all round. We stayed in skipton whilst touring the Yorkshire Dales. The Woodley sheep was a fabulous find. The staff are friendly and always smiling. The location and secure carpark is ideal. The room was soooo comfortable it was a struggle to get up and out of bed!! But the gorgeous breakfast was calling! Thank you. We will be back!

A lovely place with really great food and attentive service. From the street it looks like a small town drinking pub but once you are in you find that it is quite big at the back and very pleasant. I would highly recommend it

As regular visitors to Skipton, we thought we would try the Woolley Sheep and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a very warm welcome and all the staff were friendly and helpful during our stay. There is a free car park attached too. The breakfast was exceptional and being able to make our own hot drinks and toast was a bonus! The bed was big and comfortable. Will definitely stay again.
