A good pub?

The ma-in-law gave me the Good Pub Guide 2006 for xmas. The only pub it mentions in Ilkley (in the write-in section rather than the main review) is The Cow and Calf. Three or four people give it good reviews for good, consistent food, friendly service, etc. It makes me think less of the rest of the reviews. Somehow I'd put T C nC near the bottom of the pubs available in Ilkers (certainly below Bar T'at, The Yard and The Midland anyway).
