The Narrow Boat

Located by the canal basin in Skipton, The Narrow Boat really is a beer lover’s paradise. As part of the Market Town Taverns group, the Narrow Boat has its roots firmly planted in providing great quality cask ales to the folks of Skipton and beyond since 1999.

With unrivalled access to hundreds of UK breweries, we’re able to offer a frequently changing selection of ales and premium beers, meaning there’s always something new to sample. We offer 8 real ales including Timothy Taylor’s Landlord, Ilkley Mary Jane and Okell’s Bitter permanently available. We also have a hand picked edit of the best lagers, wheat beers & fruit beers around which sits alongside an interesting range of ciders.

If spirits are more your thing you are definitely in the right place as we offer a wide selection of whiskies and at least six of the finest boutique gins as we strive to offer a great selection of wines, premium spirits, bottled beers, non-alcoholic and hot drinks.


Our kitchen at the Narrow Boat is small and perfectly formed! Our menu offers pub classics created using local suppliers and the freshest, seasonal produce wherever possible. All our food is freshly prepared in tavern & cooked to order by Head Chef Elliot and his talented kitchen team who take real pride in creating hearty, comfort food done well .


Looking for a venue for a special birthday party, christening or even wedding? The Narrow Boat has an impressive first floor function room which can accommodate up to 35 people.

Whatever your event requirements are, please give Dani or a member of the team a call on 01756 797922 or pop in for a chat. They’ll be able to put together a menu and event package that’s tailored to your individual needs.
