No problems with service. Monday afternoon and the place is just mucky. From the drink stained menus, tables, furniture and furnishings. To the carpeted floor littered with soiled napkins and food detritus. It's simply off putting. Now I'm a fan of Weatherspoons, I think their...More

Called in for a late lunch after a 6 mile walk. What a lovely venue. As with all whetherspoons the food, drink and service was excellent. We both had the mixed grill and could not fault the meal and service.

Great for families and dead goats. Need more staff mid-morning and avoid altogether on Tuesdays but great staff and fantastic value. Brings more people into town than the Lib Dems do. Start your pub crawl of Otley here.

Nice decor- plenty of space with different seating in each section. Food is good with a good choice-coffee excellent value- offer free refills! The outdoor sitting area is also very nice. The service was a bit slow but staff helpful and friendly.
