My personal favourite for steaks. We have been travelling over at least once a year for years and years. Never been disappointed, lovely food lovely people lovely people. Will be back in the future. We would be over more often but we live miles away.

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

Had a weekend stay with friends who visit 1 or 2 times a year.
Accommodation was huge! Breakfast was brilliant, nothing too much trouble thank you Julia. It was very enjoyable staying at The Napiers. Evening meal has to be steak - cooked by Ian superbly too. Very delicious. Thank you for making our weekend enjoyable.

“Poor pizza.”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

£10.95 for an indifferent pizza - not good.
My pizza margherita was burnt and dominated by the dried oregano scattered on top. No fresh basil.
I was in a group so didn't complain, I just won't go back.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Had dinner here as part of a wedding - the service was good, the food very nice. I'd happily eat here again. The only minor gripe I had was that both the goats cheese tart and the lamb wellington would be better described as pasties, but both were very tasty!

“Ackroyds wine bar - big disappointment”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I have been looking forward to visiting this wine bar for a while. It's owned by Napiers hotel and restaurant, who also own a brilliant wine shop selling amazing wines from all over the world.

We visited the wine bar on a Saturday night. First of all for the number of people in there vs floor space there were not enough seats and tables. Secondly it was unbelievably hot, yet windows were not opened. Shame as the decor and setting is lovely.

The biggest disappointment of all though was the wine list. As a wine bar I expect a good choice of wines, rather than the laminated piece of A4 paper with a handful of each on. There were 14 in total and no specials. Given the bar is owned by a specialist wine shop that is excellent and located across the road and who probably supply them, I'm surprised and so disappointed about what could potentially have been a. fab addition to my local town of Skipton.
