Situated on Skipton's historic cobbled High Street, below the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, sits Skipton's hidden treasure - Le Caveau Restaurant.

Once a prison for Craven District's felons and sheep rustlers, there is now little evidence of its former incarnation, and the locals these days are only too pleased to dine at Le Caveau while soaking up the atmosphere of this 16th century building, complete with barrel vaulted ceilings, original beams and exposed stonework.

Since taking over the restaurant in 2014 new owners Mark and Esther Byron have strived to improve on the high standards set by Le Caveau’s previous owners over the last 60 years.

As Head Chef, Mark spends a great deal of time in the kitchen, along with Sous Chef Scott creating exiting new dishes and putting fresh twists on French classics.

First and foremost Mark has a passion for local produce and Le Caveau prides itself on using the best of what the Yorkshire dales has to offer, sourcing high quality Lamb, Beef, Pork, and fantastic seasonal game from surrounding farms and local country estates. Moreover, Le Caveau offers some of the finest seafood Britain has to offer, with fresh fish being delivered daily from the Ramus seafood emporium in Harrogate, or purchased directly on market days from George Wilson, whose van is located just yards away on Skipton’s famous market. Either way, each week you can rest assured on getting the freshest seafood around.

Le Caveau's customers are greeted by experienced front of house manager Maryse who always offers a warm welcome in the cosy bar area, where customers can relax and enjoy a drink prior to their meal.

Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two or a larger group of up to 30, Le Caveau has so much to offer including, the A-La-Carte menu, which runs alongside daily changing blackboard specials available at lunch and dinner. A fixed price menu is also available to ensure something for every budget. Both menus change regularly in order to reflect the change in seasons. In addition, the skillfully chosen wine list offers exceptional value with a wide selection of wines and many available to purchase by the glass.
