FIVE Star *** Fantastic food, service & atmosphere, best restaurant in Skipton without a doubt, we often make the 36 mile round trip from our home because it is well worth it, don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself you will have to book, even in these hard times
Le Caveau could easily be missed as it is situated on Skipton High Street down a flight of steps and under the Edinburgh Woolen Shop, However, if you walk past you will smell the delcious aromas eminating from it and maybe wonder from whence they came?!
Originally a 16th century prison for sheep rustlers and criminals this is an unsual and evocative place to eat. Very small so booking is adviseable at the weekends or for a large group.
The entrance is down a steep and narrow flight of stair and leads you into a vaulted brick built room. With Cosy tables and comfortable seating.
Special menus, a la catre and light snakcs at lucnh are available, but I think if you want an unusal and interesting meal then the evenings are well worth a try. This is not a cheap restaurant, but you pay for what you get and here you get attention to detail, fine wines and an ecclectic French/ English menu.I liked it more when they erred on the side of French but it is still fantastic.
Their beef is succulent,as is their Duck. The starters are scrummy and if you want a treat the bread and butter pudding ( not a dish I would ususlly have, is dreamy, not stodgy but light and spiced to perfection.
A fantastic choice of wines which are not cheap but to accompany a meal which is comparable you cannot go wrong. They have a Christmas Menu, a la carte and specials.
Light or substantial lunches are available and quite frankly their soup and a starter is a great lunch.
The attention to detail is sublime and the owner will endeavour to do his best to accommodate all tastes. Nothing is to much trouble here.
If you are claustropobic to do not visit as it is low ceilinged but the atmosphere is wonderful.
Reasonable prices for a wonderful lunch experience, expect to pay more in the evening.
Easy free parking in the evening on the high street. Also on Tuesday,Thursday and Sunday during the day.
Worth it for the setting.
Difficult access for wheelchairs users as this is down below street level and very narrow.
