  • Once Again, Outstanding! This place has a lovely atmosphere – light and airy. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. All of the food that I saw looked delicious. I had the sourdough with garlic/vine toms/salmon for lunch; it was so tasty and definitely plentiful (my friend had the same minus the salmon). The cake selection was great, homemade and tempting – I had the (warm) apple cake with some icecream which was truly scrummy. I will be returning very soon – a great restaurant for Skipton.

  • Brunch with family. We went today for brunch. We all enjoyed what we had. The poached eggs and salmon was yum. My husband is in a wheelchair and it was very easy to get in and be able to sit without him knocking his knees under the table. We also enjoyed Buck’s Fizz and a great cappuccino. The staff were great with service. Definitely be going back.

  • Fantastic visit! I recently came to Ellsworth Kitchen for a late lunch. Firstly I thought the decor was fantastic. An eclectic mix of furniture and trinkets combined with a peaceful atmosphere make for a welcoming first impression. The staff are very friendly and the manger is extremely helpful. The food is delicious, I especially enjoyed the olives, they are to die for. We had several small plates and I couldn’t fault any of the dishes. The service was good and our food came out very quickly. All in all a very enjoyable visit. I shall definitely be coming again.

  • I had the vegetarian breakfast and my wife had the full English. Without doubt the best breakfast i can remember. Poached eggs were perfect, the bubble and squeak things were lovely and the mushrooms and tomatoes were cooked just right. Staff polite and attentive. All round good experience.

  • A Great Addition to Skipton & Lovely Vegan Options.  Elsworth Kitchen recently opened and with vegan options on the menu, we decided to visit for lunch. The menu suits most dietary requirements and I got the impression that customer requests would be accommodated. My husband chose miso aubergine with coriander yogurt and a side of rosemary fries and I went for avocado on toast with a beetroot salad and orange dressing. The food is made to order and you can tell, it is fresh and delicious we could have eaten another portion!
