Food and ambience

Pub, Bar, British, International, Gastropub, Vegetarian Friendly
The Railway in Skipton is a bar/pub, restaurant and Bed & Breakfast. We serve a range of traditional cask ales, draft, spirits and a good wine list. We have several tables as well as bar stools and we're popular with both locals and visitors alike. Our food menu includes proper pub grub as well as modern specials. We can cater for most dietary requirements. Every Thursday we run Steak Night where you can get a steak (rump, sirloin, Barnsley chop or salmon) with all the trimmings, plus a pint, glass of wine or soft drink for just £12 per person. Our Sunday Roast is incredibly popular and regularly receives 5* reviews on our Facebook page. If you want a proper Yorkshire pudding we're the place
