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.
What a superb bistro this is. Excellent food. Cooked and presented really well
Beautiful food. Excellent efficient service too. lovely friendly atmosphere. Definitely worth another visit.
Can’t rate this place highly enough! Everything was/is perfect. Skipton you are in for a treat.
(I) was bowled over by the food they served. Let me tell you one thing, when you eat food which has been prepared from scratch using fresh ingredients even the simplest of the food turns out amazing..
….Enjoyed an excellent meal this evening, the cuisine and the service as usual was second to none.
This place is amazing! The food is delicious and the ambience in the bistro is so calm and relaxed. The customer service skills were excellent! I’ll DEFINITIVELY be coming again. Thanks guys!
Hidden away off the market high streets, this place is a gem! I tried the Delicious fish chowder, fresh and bursting with flavour!! And the beetroot and feta Pattie- Quality quality quality, will definitely come again.
A passionate chef that cooks from the heart…Sunday lunch was amazing.
