Our Ilkley bistrot sits proudly within a stunning arch-shaped building that dates back to 1861, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there’s no finer place to dine!
Our ‘raison d’être’ is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrots are the place to go for any occasion.
