ANCHOR INN, COOKHOUSE AND PUB COMES TO SKIPTON

Combining the relaxed vibe and affordability of a pub with the quality of food and service of a casual restaurant is the new and impressive Anchor Inn on Hellifield Road. The new pub restaurant had a significant investment, a total of circa £600k spent on renovating the interiors and exterior of the building. Anchor Inn Cookhouse and Pub opened its doors to the public on the 8th October with fresh and bold contemporary interiors and a delicious all-day menu, Cookhouse and Pub is quickly establishing itself as Skipton’s go-to destination for informal dining and drinking.

A place to unwind and feel at home or drop in when you’re busy, the casual venue is open seven days a week, from breakfast and brunch through to dinner, drinks and Sunday roasts. Welcoming friends, families and solo diners, the varied seasonal menu has been designed to satisfy every craving and is packed with perfect pairings from classic fish and chips through to a cheeky gin and tonic and brownies and ice cream.

UNLIMITED BREAKFASTS
Whether it’s coffee and crumpets, tea and toast or fuelling up with a full English, Anchor Inn’s unlimited breakfasts are a great way to start the day. At £9.50 per person (with kids eating free), including as many coffee and juice refills required to get you going, Anchor Inn has got mornings covered. There are unlimited helpings of freshly prepared smoked streaky bacon, free-range eggs cooked any way you like, mushrooms and veggie sausages as well as American-style buttermilk pancakes and sourdough crumpets. For a more continental experience, choose from a wide variety of baked goods such as croissants, pain au chocolat, muffins and bagels whilst healthier options include fresh fruit salad, granola, porridge and organic yoghurt.

ALL-DAY DINING
At Anchor Inn, the all-day dining menu features grazers, flatbreads and specials, alongside grills and hearty pub classics. Small plates, ideal as a starter or for sharing, include sticky chicken and duck wings and hog roast bites, whilst groups can tuck into an oven-baked camembert, paired with a carafe of wine or some cocktails. Comforting and familiar classics such as luxury lasagne, hand-battered fish and chips, burgers and grills also feature as well as lighter dishes (all 600kcal or less) such as a halloumi salad, or heartier beef and Doom Bar pie and mozzarella stuffed chicken.

DAYTIME DEALS AND KIDS MENU

Daytime Deals offer a wide selection of dishes from Monday through to Friday, with two main courses for just £8.99, from noon until 6pm. Tiny tums are also catered for – kids can eat two courses of freshly prepared food for just £1 with the purchase of an adult main meal, Monday to Thursday, 3pm – 6pm.

DISH OF THE DAY

Every Wednesday grab a burger and a drink from £9, with a range to suit everyone including cheddar and bacon, beer-battered chicken and the vegan Sloppy Joe burger. Whilst Fridays are all about hand-battered fish & chips for just £7, Sundays were made for families and friends to laze and graze over roast dinners. Choose from topside beef, turkey, lamb shank or ‘fake & ale’ pie’ served with all the trimmings for only £9.99 for adults and £4.99 for kids. With craft beers and bottles of robust reds, at Anchor Inn the offering does not disappoint.

RELAX IN THE PUB
Whatever your tipple, Anchor Inn has all bases covered. Brews include craft beers and ciders, cask ales and wines available by the glass, bottle or carafe. Don’t miss passion fruit martinis and Mojitos – best enjoyed with sharing grazers such as tomato bruschetta. Gin and tonic takes centre stage and comes in a classic serve or with elderflower, lemon and thyme or strawberries, all expertly made with a selection of premium gins and Fever Tree tonic.

ENJOY THE STYLISH SURROUNDINGS
With a wide range of comfortable seating, including booths for families and groups, and bar stools for perching, it’s the perfect place to relax. Once they’ve excused themselves from the table, kids can revel in the designated soft play area complete with games and slides.

At Anchor Inn, Cookhouse and Pub, you can have it all - good food, great times, for less.
