We've been full of the joie de vivre since we opened in December 2010. We feel truly honoured to have become a firm favourite of the locals in Skipton and we would like to say thank you to all our customers for making life here at Le Bistro so enjoyable.
The restaurant has thrived on our ethos of 'everyone's welcome' by ensuring that customers are comfortable whether out for a special meal or just popping by for a beer or a coffee.
