For what it is this is a good pub. Good as a restbite at the end of a walk from Ilkley or wherever over to this pub. It's a gastropub but it does feel like it has a bit of character to it. It's quite big as well with a few separate areas around the pub. Dogs are allowed in the area which faces the bar. They have a decent selection of keg beers and ales that were on when i was in were quite 'safe', Taylors Golden Best, Taylors Landlord, St Austell Tribute, Black Sheep Best Bitter. I went for a pint of Estrella and also Landlord (at 4.40), Landlord was in good condition. The food is a bit if a let down, 11.95 for the steak and mushroom pie and it looks like it's going to be good value with a big bowl and a big head created by the pastry on top. However, the pastry is able to give the impression that there's a lot of filling inside when there isn't. It wasn't a poor amount of filling but it was disappointing. The impression I've got is this pub is aimed at trying to be a '3 course meal' type place, which destroys the charm to some extent. Would I recommend coming? If you're in the area it's worth a drink and may be a cheaper bite (like one of the sandwiches). But it's not one to seek out in and of itself. I would be tempted to come back if I was doing the ilkley to dick hudsons walk in the summer as it has a large beer garden, but i wouldn't drive over there just to go to this pub.

I last visited Dick Hudsons about 30 years ago. As you'd expect its changed a bit! Gone, the plain pub and the Tetleys handpulled beer. Now a busy all day eating palace with tables that really should be booked before turning up. The attraction was all day food as we finished walking about 15:30. Arriving at about 16;30 on a Sunday afternoon just before Xmas, every table was occupied. We enjoyed a pint of the Barnsley sessions beer and were shown to a table after about 20 minutes. Service was friendly and our order taken within 5 minutes. I chose a Cheese / ham / leek pie which arrived after 20 minutes. Not bad, but I always think pub pies are let down by puff pastry which doesn't seem to be able to stand the oven abuse of mass catering - it was burnt.
Reasonable value and not yet broken the �10 barrier for a typical main course - a far cry from the over-rated and over-priced Busfield Arms nearby (Dec 2011).
So, call in and give it a try!

Average fare available at this gastropub, more of a restaurant really. Starting to serve more real ale but not a place to stop for just a drink unless it's a fine day and you can sit outside and admire the views.
