With the amazing medieval Skipton Castle, the thrilling Skipton Castle Woods and its woodland trails and the fascinating Leeds Liverpool canal all just five minutes’ walk from Alexander’s, it makes us the perfect place for your Little Explorers to rest their tired little legs!

From 10am we serve our Breakfasty Brunch menu – with a special children’s version, fruit smoothies, four delicious hot chocolates plus pastries and cakes. Call in for lunch or dinner and we have our full Little Explorers menu available which for just £9 offers two healthy, yummy courses and a soft drink.

Choose from Mini Luxe Fish Pie, Falafel with Hummus, Carrot and Cucumber, Cheese Rarebit, Fresh Penne Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Cheese – or even just a simple (and homemade) Fish Finger Sandwich! On Sundays there is also a mini Roast Dinner added to the menu too!

All our dishes are made fresh to order with seasonal, locally (where possible) sourced produce by our award winning chef, Paul Cunliffe and his team. As a dad himself, Paul understands the importance of creating healthy, appealing dishes for our younger customers. He said:

“All our menus from the Evening à la carte to the Little Explorers bring together the freshest produce to create a mouth-watering range of dishes which are all made from scratch.”

Enchanterwood, Alexander's AR app

And, to keep Little Explorers entertained whilst you relax, Alexander’s also has an augmented reality (AR) colouring experience for children. The revolutionary app which is accessed via Alexander’s in-house iPads, enables children to colour in two fantasy characters and then ‘bring their drawings to life’ by activating content that converts them into fully animated, interactive 3D characters. The app also features a fun digital game incorporating the same characters.

Summer holiday fun starts here!
