Popped into this pub a couple of times when we stayed the weekend in Otley. Nice sunny outside sitting area. Friendly staff and nice busy atmosphere.

Nice outside garden, next to busy street but lovely on the sunny days. Chain pub so food and drinks àre cheap but very good. Wide sort of beers, nice service. Very busy on weekend days but you can't miss a view on Chevin

I called in here for breakfast after dropping wifey at the airport. Not the best breakfast I've ever had, but for £2.99, it's got to be one of the best value. I'd certainly eat it again if in the area at breakfast time.
