The Railway Information


The Railway is a family run pub just off the High Street in Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales.The yellow sign and hanging baskets will show you where we are! We have 6 newly refurbished light and airy en-suite bedrooms with smart TV, WiFi, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer and bathroom products. Breakfast served from 7am, earlier by agreement. A traditional bar stocking cask ales and good wines is open every day. There is level access from the street. Our bistro serves a good range of homemade food in both traditional and contemporary styles from steak and ale pie to sea bass on thai noodles so something for everyone (including vegetarian and vegan options). Closed for food on Mondays. There is off road parking and a free over night car park 80m from the pub. Dog friendly in the pub and certain letting rooms.

Hello there and Welcome to The Railway. My name is Carol and along with my daughter Sarah we run the pub and bed and breakfast rooms. We have had various B & Bs before and now we get to work from our hometown of Skipton. We split our time between the pub, family, tennis and the garden. We can help you find great walks, trips, places of interest, to eat and culture so please ask. Looking forward to meeting you, Carol
