If you are looking for a traditional country pub in Ilkley that serves delicious,
locally sourced food, has a selection of some of the best Cask Ales available, and
boasts spectacular views over the countryside the The Hermit is definitely worth
a visit. We also have a small function room available – we have a number of buffet
options available & can do special menus for your event. The room is free to hire.
Aiming to create a traditional atmosphere to match the calming countryside surrounding
perfectly, we have no fruit machines and no music playing. This makes it perfect
to enjoy a nice relaxing meal by one of our fires, or sit and enjoy the sunshine
out in our beer garden. Whether you are visiting us for lunch on a day out walking,
a quiet family meal in the afternoon or a quick pint of real ale in the evening,
we guarantee you will get a friendly welcome!
