Craven Kitchen

Skipton isn’t perhaps the first place you’d expect to find authentic and delicious Indian dishes, however, Craven Kitchen is serving up contemporary delights based on traditional Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine that has made it a firm local favourite.

You won’t often see Craven Kitchen empty on a weekend and as soon as you walk through the doors and experience the mixture of fragrant and complex aromas coming from the kitchen, you’ll understand why.

They combine traditional spices, expertly blended by their chefs in the kitchen, with the finest local produce. Although their menu covers dishes from the wider South Asian canon, Craven Kitchen specialise in Bengali cuisine. These dishes are packed with heat, flavour and personality, giving the restaurant a different flavour palate to your typical curry house. The menu also caters well for vegetarians where there is plenty of choice and variety in curries and sides.

The interior design has the chic and modern finish of a city centre restaurant. From the dining area you can gaze over the ornate counter top into the partially open kitchen, where all the drama of the fiery cooking style is on display. The restaurant is well suited for a variety of occasions. Whether you’re there for an intimate dinner for two or enjoying a meal with a large party, the space is laid out so as to fit both scenarios with just the right amount of ambience and excitement.
