Characterful nineteenth century canalside inn at Bradley in the Aire Valley, near Skipton.
About Slaters Arms
The Slaters Arms is a traditional inn that enjoys a beautiful canalside location in the Aire Valley near Skipton. Dating back to the nineteenth century the pub has retained many of its original features including revealed wooden beams, a large feature fireplace and traditional wooden furniture. The walls and ceilings are covered in ye olde mugs, tankers, plates and brasses. A real ale pub, it has four cask ales on including a locals' favourite, Taylors Golden Best, plus draught lagers and ciders and a wine list with options by the glass. It's a great choice before or after a walk along the canal or in the surrounding countryside. The Slaters has built up a strong reputation for its food and resident chef Tim has been cooking here for over seven years. Tim is proud of the local produce available and uses it throughout the menus. Lunchtimes see lighter bites such as sandwiches, hot baguettes, jackets and three-egg omlettes all served with proper homemade chips. The main menu focuses on traditional pub classics which are cooked fresh daily. Beer-battered haddock, home-cooked ham, egg and chips and a pie of the day are all popular choices; other dishes include a range of steaks, Tim's signature Lamb Henry; slow cooked shoulder marinated in honey and mint, and comfort dishes like homemade lasagne and weekly specials include fresh fish, meat and vegetarian options. Sundays offer two roast meats with all the Yorkshire trimmings. A sun trap beer garden with great views of the countryside is a big draw on warmer days and the pub also has a strong local community role with the local cricket club holding events here, a monthly quiz night and live music. Open for food Tuesdays- Saturday 12pm-2pm and 6pm-9pm and Sundays 12pm-7.30pm.
Your restaurant looks very nice and the menus very tempting., but it would be helpful if the menus were priced. not to sound rude but when there is no pricing it tends to me to be overpriced
Visited 8th March 2013, four of us enjoyed various main courses, Gammon, Fish and Chips and lasagne, all were enjoyed as was the bottle of wine and thwaites Wainwright, need to book a table to dine, would certainly recommend.
Have not visited your pub yet, but after reading all the lovely reviews we intend to visit you very shortly.

great food...great place, well worth a visit
We highly recommend The Slaters Arms to everyone we meet - excellent food, excellent service, excellent host and service with a smile - always the same excellent standard.
All credit to the Landlord, his wife and staff. We will be back soon.
Great food, fantastic hospitality & a very well stocked bar. We discovered this little gem last year while navigating the Leeds & Liverpool canal so went back twice in the same week this year & we were not disappointed. To say that there were 4 families that all descended at the same time we were met with a very warm & accommodating welcome. Good choice off beers & superb wine list compliment the excellent menu. This has to be one of (if not the) best pubs in the area.
What a great way to spend the last night of our holiday. The food was fantastic, good portions and very good value for money with desserts to die for. The landlord made our visit just that little bit special welcoming all thirteen rather loud, excited holiday buzzing guests. Try it, it really is well worth a visit.
My wife, family and I have eaten here more than once and never been disappointed, it is a bit of a drive for us but well worth it, better than pub food standard and always a friendly welcome from 'mine hosts'. Lovely views from the beer garden in the warm weather, roaring fire when it is cold. well recommended.
I can thoroughly recommend this establishment to anyone. We were travelling on the canal past Bradley and so I looked to see if they did my favourite brew, Theakstones Old Peculier, but the landlord said he had not had it in for five years but promised to get a barrel in for the weekend. And he was as good as his word with me able to sample the first pint of the barrel at lunch time on good Friday. I also had the beer battered haddock with chips and mushy peas and can only say the standard was excellent. If you are in the area and want excellent food, good beer and a friendly reception, the Slater's Arms is a must not miss opportunity.
