Narrow Boat, Skipton

On Tuesday October 9th 2001, The Narrowboat, Skipton, North Yorkshire was presented with the Autumn 2001 Pub of the Season award by the Keighley and Craven Branch of CAMRA. Owned by Harrogate-based Market Town Taverns, the Narrowboat was converted from Vinos Wine Bar in early 1999 and only opened its doors in March of that year. It has already won the Autumn POTS award twice,in 2000 and 1999. Created as a free house, it regularly sells up to 8 cask-conditioned ales. Timothy Taylor Landlord and Caledonian 80/- are regular and the other guest beers usually come from local breweries such as Cropton, Hambleton, Roosters, West Yorkshire, Phoenix and often include a mild. (Written October 2001). There is no keg stout and the only lager-style beers available on draught are imported. Bottled German and Belgian beers and a good selection of wines are also on offer. The pub is open all day every day with food every lunchtime. It is tucked down an alley in the centre of Skipton (see map). On two levels, there is a no-smoking bar and seating downstairs and an additional seating area upstairs on the gallery. There is a pleasant atmosphere with no intrusive electronic music or gaming machines. There is occasional live music and beer festivals are held two or three times a year. (October 2001)
