We were invited to the launch of Banyan Bar & Kitchen in Ilkley earlier this month, alongside several other local businesses. Since then, we’ve attended business meetings, networking events and social gatherings at the central location, and have been impressed every time!

We first visited for a complimentary 2 course meal and cocktail. The food was delicious and all of the staff were very attentive!

Next up was a cocktail masterclass hosted by Mark Austin, Bar Development Manager for Banyan. The evening included an introduction to Empress Gin which is a UK exclusive to the Ilkley bar.

On Monday night we met Kate from A Tidy Mind to discuss her ongoing business development and website strategy, before joining a networking meet-up upstairs.

The wifi is strong, the coffee is strong and the gin is strong, which makes this an ideal social and business venue in the heart of Ilkley!
