XPA has returned!

Our open log fires are especially welcome perhaps after a walk on the nearby moors. Take a seat in our popular Yorkshire bar and try hand pulled real ales. Delicious food is served throughout the day in all the lounge areas, the dining rooms and in our stunning garden room or on the patio.
Looking for the perfect place to meet friends and family, relax, unwind and debrief from work, then look no further than the stylish Black Hat located in the heart of Ilkley. We are an independent neighbourhood bar and restaurant that has drawn inspiration from the local area and its people.
Wharfedale Brewery is situated in Ilkley town centre on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. In late 2012, a group of friends and real ale enthusiasts came up with the idea of a brew Pub in Ilkley. In March 2013 they took over the lease of the former Albert Inn and incorporated a micro brewery in a barn at the back. Built as a farmhouse in 1709, Wharfedale Brewery was brought back to life once more and resulted in brewing returning to Ilkley town centre for the first time in over 100 years.
The Ilkley Brewery and Aerated Water Company was originally founded in 1873, and soon grew to become one of the region’s leading beverage producers and suppliers. With constant innovation and development, the process from grain to glass is an exciting journey, and we want our passion to be tasted in every drop.
