Flying Duck

The Flying Duck Pub

Ilkley's only brew pub and home to the Wharfedale Beers


The front of the Flying Duck Pub

Main Street Ilkley

Refurbished in 2013, the Flying Duck Pub occupies one of the oldest buildings in the town of Ilkley; the barn housing the brewery to the rear is perhaps even older.

The pub is open for real ales, ciders, wines and spirits every day, with late closing Thursday - Saturday. Hot and cold food is served at lunchtimes (see Food page) and includes home-made specials as well as pies from the World famous Lishman's butchers in Ilkley. Teas and coffees are available. 

Wine is sourced from Martinez in Ilkley and of the nine real ales, three pumps are reserved for our own Wharfedale Beers. The other pumps offer a selection of beers to cater for every taste - from the crisp light blondes and hoppy IPAs to the rich dark beers and traditional bitters. Cocktails are available upstairs (see drinks page)

At the rear is a first-floor sun-terrace which over looks the brewery and on chilly evenings there are heaters.  From here, it is possible to see the brewing equipment though the large display window.

Upstairs, the two rooms can be used for private functions and parties free of charge and if needed, the upstairs bar can be staffed and hot or cold food provided. Special events can be arranged for private parties, including tour of the brewery, wine tasting, gin tasting, cocktails etc. It is also a venue for live music and details can be found on our Facebook page.
