WELCOME TO The Cow and Calf IN Ilkley

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.

We may be temporarily closed but we’re still here online so you can take a look at what we have to offer, just in time for your next visit.

In 1844, the country's first hydropathic hotel, The Benrhydding was built on the site of The Cow and Calf. In 1873 the building became a private residence called Highfield House, then in 1949 it became a boarding house. When visiting The Cow and Calf, look out for great views across Wharfedale and historic features, like the old Victorian well that still sits in the grounds.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips, as well as seasonal surprises if you’re after something a little different.

We can’t wait to see you again soon and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.

We look forward to seeing you soon — in the meantime, stay safe.
