Previously a luxurious Victorian spa hotel, The Cow & Calf – Ilkley serves traditional British pub cuisine and looks out on to the dramatic Ilkley Moor and iconic Cow and Calf rock formation, which can be viewed from the al fresco beer garden. There is a strong sense of cosiness at The Cow and Calf due to the trusty Innkeeper’s Lodge, the welcoming open fire and the oaken furnishings.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Cow & Calf menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Cow & Calf ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Cow and Calf is just 4 minutes’ drive from Ilkley Train Station, in West Yorkshire.

    great meals and lovely service.
    we love that there is a dog friendly area inside and with the full menu.
    I tried the salad and salmon for the first time - loved it. The dessert platter was great - in terms of volume (we couldnt finish it) and variety

    OK - Overall we are familiar with carveries , and the best results are obtained by getting there early - At around 3.,00, the food is on the reheat , which was hot it tastes , especially the roast potatoes

    friendly staff...smooth service... a bit too much food...ordered only roast. the only odd thing was that the whole restaurant and pub smelled like human urine.

    Fabulous meal in very pleasant surroundings. Table by window with amazing view of valley below. Particularly impressed with prawns and scallops starter. Decent portion sizes and very well put together dishes. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our visit wasn't the first and certainly won't be the last.
