From the faux French exterior, which looks more like a street corner in Montmartre than a pub in the Dales, to their Franco / Yorkshire menu, Le Bistro Des Amis serves up no nonsense food from both cultures. Making the best of both produce from the surrounding area and importing particular ingredients from famous French markets, they’ve managed to create a hybrid menu that would perfectly satisfy those post walk hunger pangs.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and is equally accommodating whether you call in for a light lunch, drinks, or a three course meal. On the ground floor their bar is stocked with a selection of speciality French wines and other delicacies you may not have come across.
