While attending a meeting in Ilkley on a Friday I searched for a Wetherspoons pub in which to eat lunch and the Lister Arms in the shopping centre was quickly discovered. Pressed for time I ordered a Chicken Tikka Masala with rice and a pint...More

Generally Wetherspoons seem to be located near to bus stations but ironically this one is built on the site of the old bus garage in the Yorkshire town of Ilkley. A fairly nondescript building located in a back street this place does not really fit...More

Popped in for a quick lunch, chose three items for £10 from the quick bites menu. The brie wasn't available, the prawns were okay, the halumi was dreadful - like leather and very salty - and the nachos were just about edible. When I asked...More

Enjoyed our food at The Lister Arms, I had veggie lasagne which was very tasty and my husband had gammon and eggs that were cooked to perfection. Good decor, this Wetherspoons is much nicer than most that I have been in.

Standard wetherspoons....cheap and cheerful but did find the brown and nicotine yellow decor a bit depressing and dark! On the upside drinks and food is terrific value although the place could have done with a good clean, polish and vacuum.
