All about Monkmans

Situated in the heart of Ilkley, Monkmans Restaurant was established some five years ago by Mike & Joelle. Mike having returned to his native Yorkshire along with French Partner Joelle who hales from the Languedoc region.

Monkmans is a small intimate restaurant of just 12 tables (so booking advisable), offering classic European cuisine prepared by Head Chef Neale and the kitchen brigade. Emphasis is strongly on fish which is delivered daily and is available from our blackboard menu. A fine selection of meats, game, poultry and vegetarian dishes support the blackboard. We pride ourselves on our small, but well balanced wine list which changes regularly and offers a great little selection of French regional wines, chosen by Mike who spent over 15 years in the wine trade.

Our ever popular light lunch menu continues to please customers old and new and offers a welcome break from a tour of the delightful town of Ilkley.

We look forward to seeing you soon and on behalf of us all offer you a warm welcome and an informal, enjoyable dining experience at Monkmans.

Bon Apetit!

Mike & Joelle
