“Reall made us feel comfortable, excellent food!!!”

Aswell as having dinner, we stayed the night too. The room was small but well appointed. And the owner and his family made us feel really at home. Even offering to tow us through the snow to our next destination! We will certainly visit again. Loved it!

“Excellent Food, very welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

I was in Skipton on business and decided on a light lunch. I chose a little restaurant called Napiers and the welcome was fantastic. A very friendly team who make you feel at home instantly. I went for a tiger prawn salad. The prawns were huge and plentiful. If your in Skipton this place is a must, just off the beaten track but well worth the 2 minute stroll.

“Napiers Skipton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

A real and rare treat. the food was excellant. The steaks are as good as they profess to be. Very tasty starters. we didnt try the sweets as we were too full. Good choice of menu. Friendly and eficient staff. Clean and well presented restaurant. Good value for money. Well worth a visit if you are in town or passing through. only one small critisism for first timers. The entrance / waiting area lets the place down. doesnt compliment the rest of the decor.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

We visited Napiers with some left over money having cancelled a night's accommodation elsewhere in the Dales, so we decided to splash out.

The steaks here are excellent, as were the starters of belly pork and dates in bacon. The steaks are served with a the standard onion rings/tomatoes etc but also come with two chosen sides from the extensive menu.

Service is very friendly and very efficient plus you can watched your steaks cooked on the open grill. Having found mine a little too rare I asked for it to be cooked a little longer and this was no problem.

You know what you get with Napiers, the steaks won't disappoint but unsurprisingly this doesnl't make it particularly cheap - in my opinion I'd prefer pay more for better quality. The menu leans towards meat (especially steak) but the other courses looked excellent, even if the choice was a little limited.
