Skipton is a great place to explore – from its fantastically preserved medieval Castle, Castle Woods sculpture trail and 4km of canal tow path walks… all of which are just a stone’s throw from the expansive interiors and heated terraces of Alexander’s.

And, since we all know that exploring can make for hungry work, we have developed a very special Little Explorers Menu, full of healthy, yummy dishes made fresh to order and all at a child-friendly price!

For just £9 your Little Explorers can enjoy a healthy main course like Mini Luxe Fish Pie or even a Mini Roast Dinner on a Sunday, followed by homemade Gelato with fresh fruit and a soft drink of their choice.

Better still, the exploring doesn’t need to stop once you come inside as junior guests can continue their discoveries via our unique and specially developed Children’s Colouring App & Game, ‘Enchanterwood’.

Just ask a member of staff for an in-house iPad and colouring sheet and your little ones can enjoy colouring in our very own woodland characters- which through the magic of augmented reality then come to life in front of their eyes! Our ‘Enchanterwood’ app also includes a fun game featuring these new found woodland friends. Cutting edge fun for them coupled with precious moments of relaxation for you.

Make sure you keep an eye out for our special spooky ‘Enchanterwood’ updates for Halloween!


Alexander’s welcome families and offer a downstairs toilet including baby change facilities.
