From lunch breaks to fine dining

Whether you're returning from a day in the Dales or want to fuel up before you hit the castle, Skipton has a fantastic array of places to eat and drink. So take a seat for some award-winning fish and chips, settle into a pint of fine ale or select from a tempting variety of national cuisines represented around town. Cafés, pubs and restaurants galore are all within a hop, skip and a jump. Food is of the essence at The Angel Inn. Experience tasty well presented food using the freshest and finest seasonal produce from around the region. Choose between the relaxed Bar Brasserie or slightly more formal restaurant.

The best fish and chips

Who can resist the enticing smell of fresh fish and chips, dressed in lashings of salt and vinegar? For a real lunch time treat, follow your nose and head for Bizzie Lizzie's - officially awarded 'best fish and chips in the country' by the Sea Fish Industry Authority. Take away and eat while you browse the markets or savour the taste at a more leisurely pace in the restaurant.

Posh nosh

Skipton is rather famous for its outdoor market, selling all sorts of tasty treats including fresh seasonal veg and old fashioned sweets. But if you're in the mood for more formal dining, dress up and take a drive over to the Michellin Starred Burlington Restaurant at the Devonshire Arms Country House Hotel for one of the head chef's gastronomic masterpieces set by the majestic Bolton Abbey
