About The Ilkley Cow

You can probably guess from the name alone what sort of restaurant The Ilkley Cow is. Serving all things meaty with an emphasis on beef unsurprisingly, The Ilkley Cow is an independent steakhouse and grill restaurant just off Ilkley’s main high-street.

The large stone building which houses the restaurant is emblazoned with logos of a highland cow meaning that there’s nothing discreet about what sort of food is served inside. Inside the restaurant the cow theming is immediately evident with the seats all upholstered in a brown and white, cow-like material; hanging on the walls are various pictures and drawings of cows and over in the corner sits an impressive collection of milk churns.

Food-wise, the starters vary from sharing dishes like nachos to classic dishes including calamari and a duck and chicken liver pate. For people wanting an immediate hit of meat there’s also the option of a half rack of ribs. Their ‘house special’ main courses include a citrus glazed confit duck leg as well as sizzling jerk chicken.

However, the most prolific part of the menu is, of course, the beef section. There is the option to build a burger with toppings of your choice, whilst on the grill there are all the classic cuts of steak that you would hope for. If you’re struggling to choose your steak, the 38oz Ilkley Cow sampler allows you to try their rump, sirloin, rib-eye and fillet for just under £80, although it’s probably best to share this one.

With a decent kids menu available as well as a fairly standard but crowd-pleasing dessert menu, everyone is catered for at The Ilkley Cow. A short but sweet wine list accompanies the food with Prosecco available for under £20. There is also a decent selection of soft drinks on offer too.
