Box Tree

35-37 Church Street, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29 9DR
An excellent restaurant, with a cottagey atmosphere. It was originally a farmhouse, built in the early 18th century, but has been a restaurant since 1962. A series of tastefully-furnished small dining rooms have open fires during winter months.

Depending on the season, expect the likes of 'Roasted Langoustines in a Niçoise style' 'Terrine of Chicken, Ham and Foie Gras with Apricot and Orange Chutney'; 'Salad of Yorkshire Blue Cheese with Hazelnut Vinaigrette' or 'Asparagus with Maltaise Sauce' among the starters; 'Lamb with Shallot Purée', 'Roast Rump of Veal with Fondant Potato'; 'Tranche of Calf's Liver, Glazed Vegetables, Pommes Purée & Red Wine Sauce' or 'Monkfish with Cassoulet' among the mains.

Desserts - such as a 'Valrhona Chocolate Tart'; 'Lemon Tartlet with Citrus Fruits & Blackberry Sorbet' and 'Red Wine Jelly with Summer Fruits & Strawberry Soup' - are of a very high standard, and hard to resist for those with a sweet tooth.

The set lunch menu is particularly good value for cooking of this standard.

Professional but friendly service. No mobile phones.
