Lunch at The Copper Dragon Bistro

Copper Dragon Brewery Bistro

Having visited Skipton’s newest visitor attraction a couple of times, I decided it was time to try out the new Copper Dragon Bistro for Lunch.

An extensive menu including locally sourced produce and a specials board that featured Special Seafood Salad, BLT club sandwich, Thai fishcakes along with the regular menu items such as Jumbo Haddock & Chips (The chips are nice thick brown home made ones!), Yorkshire Gammon, Steak & Ale Pie, Local Pork Sausages incorporating 1816 beer somehow (will have to find out more!) and a selection of hot & cold Sandwiches,  steak & sticky onions, Pippin Yorkshire Rarebit, Wensleydale, Beef or Prawn.

I tried the Thai fishcakes served on a bed of salad with a Mayo dressing and added a portion of the homemade chips.  Excellent homemade fishcakes with a lovely delicate Thai flavour.

To drink: nice cup of Tea! but would recommend the Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, refreshing blond ale with a citrus note, perfect with fish, 3.9%abv will return without the car for a more comprehensive beer review !

    Arguably now one of the stand-out restaurants in Skipton, it’s a shame they don’t serve in the evenings.

    Great clean beer. But the kitchen is totally under staffed.
    My “Great” Prawn cocktail was “poor” ,Eleven prawns(yes I counted them in the vain hope of finding some more) coated with Marie rose sauce which tasted like it was out of a cheap jar.
    The dish has been around for 40 years how can they get it so wrong?
