This is a Timothy Taylor pub and the beer is very good and well kept. Food is excellent. They also have rooms if you wish to stay.

We called at the Woolly Sheep, Skipton for Sunday lunch on December 4th 2016. On this particular Sunday, there was a Christmas event on the high street therefore more people around than usual and consequently what appeared to be more people in the Woolly Sheep than a regular Sunday lunchtime however this certainly does not excuse the below poor experience...

We hadn't booked, but we were seated in the bar area, which suited us well. Service was prompt and the food was very nice. I loved the Yorkshire pudding.

Wether it's just for a pint of Landlord and a glass of red sat by a crackling log fire or in this case Gammon Steaks with twice cooked chips The Wooly Sheep doesn't disappoint. Food was excellent and worth the money. May stay over next time we're in Skipton.

Had a absolutely amazing meal here. Friendly staff, proper food and a great interior, what more could you want. Also, I really recommend the Fish 'n' Chips, best I have ever had.
