There’s certain London restaurants that require no introduction, and The Wolseley is one. So imagine our delight when The Sunday Times freelance travel writer, Rob Crossan not only declared Alexander’s ‘the place to eat’ in Skipton, but likened us to The Wolseley!

“Parquet floors, chrome fittings and an immense pewter bar; Alexander’s feels like a pampered northern nephew of The Wolseley,” he wrote!

And whilst Rob tucked into a classic Omelette Arnold Bennett in one of the window seats overlooking the Castle Woods and Leeds Liverpool canal, Alexander’s owner, Susannah Daley talked to him about his experience of Skipton:

“Rob was full of enthusiasm and praise for Skipton,” said Susannah. “He was bowled over with its history, idyllic setting and incredibly wide range of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

“He loved them all from the informal elegance of Alexander’s to the traditional Yorkshire-ness of pubs like the Woolly Sheep, to the niche speciality of places like Steep and Filter and The Sound Bar.

“And as a long-time fan of The Wolseley, Rob’s cheeky compliment is a fantastic accolade for us, but what was most gratifying was to hear his passion about Skipton and how he was relishing the opportunity to once again put the town on the national map.”
