The Royal Shepherd is Skipton’s only true canal-side pub. With Royal ascent also the only Royal Shepherd in the UK!
The entrance to the pub via the front takes you into the main pub area where you will find amongst the walls history of the pubs name and origins alongside pictures painting the colourful history of Skipton. The entrance to the side is via an outside seating area where you can take in the sights and sounds of the canal.
There are also 2 other rooms, firstly a snug, when the weather is right a real fire will keep you cosy whilst you enjoy the lovely pub atmosphere. Secondly, is a small but well-presented dining area that can comfortably accommodate group and party bookings.
The bar offers a selection of cask conditioned beers and with our lager and wine selection we equally cater for a cosy drink or an accompaniment to our selection of food. We also have a broad selection of Gins and Whisky to satisfy the real connoisseur, or if you like simply enjoy a freshly made cappuccino or a pot of tea.
Locally sourced ingredients sit pride of place within our menu which will always have a seasonal touch alongside some home cooked pub classics. Serving food daily and with children and dogs always welcome we know we can provide not only a food offering for all tastes but a dining experience to suite all needs.
Serving food every day and evening, pop down to the Royal Shepherd and experience a true pub experience.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
