The Mill Bar and Bistro

The Mill Bar and Bistro is an independently owned restaurant set in the iconic and beautiful former textile mill along the river Wharfe in the Wharfebank Business Center.

We have been sympathetic to the original features of the building and have (we think) brought modern fixtures and fittings to coincide with the natural beauty of the building.

As an independent restaurant we have the freedom to be intrinsically selective about who we use to supply our ingredients. Only the freshest local produce will do which enables our chefs to design dishes to follow the four seasons of the year.

The Roebuck

A bit of climb to this pub, formerly the Spite, up the hill north of Otley. Food served lunch and dinner and pleasant beer garden looking down the valley

A bit of History – Fierce competition with The Traveller’s Inn a few doors up led to their nicknames- the ‘Spite’ and ‘Malice’.That name stuck, and The Spite only went back to its true name in 2012, along with a renovation and the addition of a large dining area.In the 1870’s, the owner of The Roebuck Inn (as it was then) had a good passing trade with the Washburn reservoir navvies.
