This quality gastro pub is ideally positioned for those returning from a day out in the Yorkshire Dales National Park or visiting the local area for a quiet stroll and is equally popular with the locals from Otley and Ilkley.

Situated in a rural setting, The Askwith Arms is between Otley and Ilkley and enjoys stunning views over Wharfedale.

The Askwith Arms has something to offer everyone: family friendly, dog friendly, and welcomes walkers, cyclist, motorbikes and coachtrips. We also have cosy snug areas of the bar for those who prefer a quiet drink by the fire.

A great range of drinks – lagers, ales, spirits and wines as well as a variety of popular tonics, fruit juices and low-alcohol bottles.

Great quality, great value homemade food is available daily – every day from 12. Please note that the pub/ restaurant is closed every Monday, (but does open on Bank Holiday Mondays)

Delicious Sunday roasts served weekly – our last food order on Sundays is 6:30pm, please book a table if at all possible when wishing to dine, especially after 3pm on Sundays to ensure that you can be accommodated.

There is a lively Friday night quiz at 8:30pm- a novel paper-free “smartphone Quiz” suitable for all ages and abilities.
