Thank you for visiting the Farsyde Restaurant website.
The Farsyde has been established in Ilkley for over 16 years. The restaurant opened in small, intimate premises behind The Grove in Ilkley and then moved to its present larger, more comfortable premises on New Brook Street around 8 years ago.
Even after 16 years there is no complacency at the Farsyde. The consistent quality of its food, value for money prices and innovative menus have maintained the Farsyde’s reputation amongst both locals and visitors alike. For the size of the town Ilkley has a very large choice of restaurants. The Farsyde is consistently voted into the top three restaurants in the area on Trip Advisor and has previously won a local “Restaurant of the Year” award.
This independently owned, 82 seat restaurant, is run by husband and wife team Gavin and Zoe Beedham. Thanks to Zoe and her team’s hosting skills, you will find a warm welcome, friendly professional service with a smile and comfortable, stylish surroundings providing a relaxed ambiance for your meal.
However, at the end of the day, the Farsyde team is very aware that it is “all about the food”. Chef/owner Gavin is the driving force behind the food at the Farsyde. Gavin brings many years of fine dining experience to the restaurant. This experience included several years at the prestigious Devonshire Arms Hotel culminating in his role as Head Chef running the large kitchen team and winning many awards and accolades for his work.
Gavin’s experience and enthusiasm shows in every dish on the menu. He has a passion for fresh, quality ingredients, mainly locally sourced, that complement the changing seasons. His menu, which changes on a regular basis, is always an accomplished blend of classic dishes and old favourites interspersed with exciting new dishes and flavour combinations.

For those times when you want to dine at home but still want top, restaurant standard food, without the hassle of making it yourself, Gavin’s team can help. Simply phone in your order from the Home Dining menu up to 9 pm, when the restaurant is open and your meals will be freshly prepared for you to collect on the day you need them.
However, when you are looking for the pleasure of an evening or lunchtime out with beautiful food served to you with style then Gavin and Zoe look forward to welcoming you to the Farsyde.
