Skipton Restaurant Greenwood
A Bit About Us

Greenwood Café Bistro offers a fresh vibrant cuisine, during the day we open our doors at 10:00 for breakfast continuing on to lunch, we are a stylish but traditional café bistro, serving everything from soup and sandwiches to more gourmet foodie inspired dishes.

However, we feel what makes it that little bit special is that during the evenings of Friday and Saturday we transform into an intimate bistro with damask table cloths and a full artisan Anglo-Mediterranean menu, changing monthly.

We want to bring back the Sunday lunch, so we are doing just that, our local butcher provides us with Beef and Lamb just for the occasion, we offer delicious sirloin of beef and leg of lamb, in addition to fresh fish, vegetarian and vegan options.
