Welcome to the Vaults!

Or the Taps as we’re nicknamed locally. The Vaults has a long history; an officers’ training school in the Second World War, it has since been through numerous transformations – the Vaults is the last remaining part and original tap house of the landmark Ilkley Moor Hotel that burned down in 1968, which then became a school room, a pool hall, a gastropub…

… The Vaults is now back to being a friendly, traditional family pub at the heart of the local community. We serve homemade pub food, beers & cask ales, as well as a wide selection of ciders, gins & spirits and soft drinks.

In Summer, you can come and enjoy the sunshine in our leafy beer garden or cosy up by our roaring open fire in Winter. Upstairs is our 100-capacity function room, available for parties and weddings, which is also used by different community groups during the week.  

The Vaults caters for everyone –families & children, walkers, cyclists and even your four-legged furry friends!
