Popped in a couple of times for a few pints. A nice range of different, craft type ales. Nice location on the canal especially with the outside seating and can become quite busy on sunny days. Can't comment on the food.

Great little bar specialising in craft real ales and in a picturesque part of the town. The beer was perfect, the snacks delicious and the welcome all that you would want. Some of the reviews on here appear to be talking about a different place...More

Nice setting where Springs Branch joins the L&L canal, decent beers, quite plain and simple but its the view that does it

Just popped in for a pint while doing a walk around the downtown and canal pathways. Can't speak to their food, but the ale was cold.

Pity they only seem to serve citrusy beers. I would rather be able to have a proper traditional bitter, so don't go there as often as I would otherwise. Pity cos the place is good and the staff are pleasant.

At The Boat House Skipton you can also enjoy our amazing real ales in the bar whilst admiring our amazingly picturesque location here in Skipton’s canal basin. We have 5 hand pulls serving locally brewed real ales, ciders, continental bottle lagers and speciality beers, along with great wine and select spirits. We have a great outdoor seating area which is one of, if not the best seats in Skipton in the Summer. The Boat House bar has also won a couple of awards (check us out)!!! . In 2017 the bar won 2 top awards one being named pub of the season by Keighley & Craven CAMRA and also you can find us in the bible of top beer places within the Good Beer Guide.
