So we were in Skipton... and Le Bistro is in the Good Beer Guide. Why?! It really isn't the sort of place you go just for a beer. I'm sorry guys but... not my favourite place... it just all felt a bit pretentious for a bit of lunch... and we certainly couldn't have stood there and just had a beer.... More

Salut Lorien, Just in case you in case you have never had a good restaurant guide in your hands, most good pubs are in it! And why a restaurant serving good beer shouldn't be in the beer guide? You tell me? We have many camara friends and customers here and they enjoy a great pint while having their meal and... More

What a little gem this restaurant is, located just off the main street in Skipton. A true authentic piece of France over here! Having visited at lunchtime several times, it was the perfect choice for my 60th birthday celebration. We were a party of 6 and everyone had starters and main, of which there were many options. The wine list... More

Pleasant surroundings in the upstairs Resteraunt, we all enjoyed what we had, But slight lack of service through the night as limited staff to cover a fully booked area Will go back, but needs more senior supervision as personal service limited to not covering all tables. Food enjoyable but too much enphasis with cheese and other garnishes spoiling courses. Lunch... More

When we visit Skipton we usually have a bite and a coffee at one of the many small cafes in the town centre, but today spotted the Bistro and was attracted by the menu. Welcoming staff, nice menu, from which my wife and I shared the steak sandwich with onions and mushrooms, which turned out to be a very nice... More

Called in the Bistro for an aperitif (excellent white Beaujolais sourced specially for the Bistro from Lantignie) and was prevailed upon to have a "bite". I was presented with lobster, salad, homemade mayonnaise and French fries. Absolutely magnificent! It was just how I like it! Value for money at £16! Worth a visit for this alone. My friends regaled themselves... More

Booked a table for 6.30pm. We had as starters a lamb salad and salt & pepper squid and for mains the fillet tail and chips and the missus had the vegetarian pasta. It's hard to sum up this place. We finished our staters and main courses by 6.55pm. That's 25 minutes from walking in the door to finishing eating. Now... More

Having been recommended to us, we booked in advance to ensure we got a table in what is clearly a popular Bistro. On arrival we were quickly shown to our table and drinks brought soon after. There service throughout was in fairness very good and all those we met were helpful and very pleasant. However, we were seated at the... More
