“One to return to ”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

We called in here for a drink whilst stopping off in Skipton on our boat. We chose it purely for its funny name! The atmosphere was so good - and the beer - that we returned for a meal when in town again.

As others have said this place is not cheap by pub standards but it is superior. We loved our meals ranging from an omlette to fish. There is not a huge choice for veggies but it's good. There are blackboard specials and most of the food is local. The service was excellent, lovely friendly waitresses.

The pub has been left in traditional style which really enhances the atmosphere although the bar area also being a walkway could be arranged better as it's a struggle at busy times.

Good range of real ale and a couple of cosy corners make it easy to while away an afternoon. I also had a lovely hot chocolate!

Definitely a must when in town.

“WOOLLY SHEEP PUB - AMAZING!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

i Stayed at the Woolly Sheep Pub in Skipton for 3 nights with an old friend as a short break.
I can honestly say that the place exceeded our expectations in every way. Rooms were great, beds very comfortable, food was really good and the menu was imaginative. The staff were all incredibly polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Beer was very good too.
I would recomend The Woolly Sheep to anyone.

“What a fab little pub!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

A traditional well kept pub with plenty of choice of rale hand pulled ales. The atmosphere was excellent, comfy seating and restaurant service in the rear. Will be back I'm sure!

“Family Roast Board - great sharing experience with friends”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We have just returned from an overnight stay in Skipton and we really enjoyed the Woolly Sheep. We went for drinks on the Saturday afternoon and spotted the Family Roast Boards. On enquiring at the bar we were told they needed to be booked a week in advance. However, they accommodated us for one the next day.

It was a great experience, a board with a large serving of pork with dishes of roast potates, mashed potato, giant yorkshire puddings, vegetables and lots of gravy. You had to carve the meat yourself and there was more than enough for the six of us.

Sticky toffee pudding to die for. Big enough for two or three! Lamb chop superb. Everyone very pleased with our meal!
