A lovely little tea room. So quaint and a great time capsule as it retains its authentic cottage style with a working range. The staff are warm and friendly and the menu is that little bit more intersting than your average tea room. The various Rarebits are an absolute must! Yum! My friend had the "Chutney" one which was delicious... More

After crossing over from Outershaw, along the Dales Way in appalling weather, this was an answer to prayer. Although the Tea Shop was busy we were made very welcome with tea and cakes. Our room was very comfortable and although not en-suite, the bath was bliss to our aching legs after 4 days on the trail. Definitely on the list... More

Why go to heaven when you can visit Dent in the Yorkshire Dales and enjoy a "Tea and a bun" at the "Stone Close Tea Room" what bliss, whilst the building goes back way in time the service is bang up to date, polite, friendly and very welcoming on top of that the prices all round were reasonable considering it...

Making the journey from Sedbergh to Dent, we were in need of refreshment (as the world and his wife seemed to be coming the other way on a single carriageway road) and also £1 to have the right change for the parking meter. The owner kindly lent us the £1 so after parking we returned. This is a delightful place... More

My friend and I arrived at Dent out of the back of a farmers' trailer, soaking wet and with a damaged bike and bruised and shaken lady rider. We had started our first day of our cycle tour of the Dales in wet weather and when coming down a steep hill off "the tops", two miles short of our bed... More

We stayed for three nights in this wonderful B & B. Cosy, clean and quiet. Wonderful breakfast and great food. A lovely attention to details all round. Diana and Melvyn, the warm welcoming couple that run this place, made our stay a memory for life. The village and its surroundings are extremely picturesque and there are many lovely walks to...

We enjoyed an excellent light lunch here. We ate simple food but fresh and well cooked. We ate Welsh rarebit and Wensleydale ploughmans taking advantage of the famous local cheeses. The cakes were particularly good, a moist and flavourful carrot cake and sticky toffee pudding, served with a crunchy toffee sauce and with local Dales icecream. The cafe is attractive... More

Possibly the best bubble & squeak I've had. And what a location! Just off the cobbled street, and through an old low door, you enter a cafe that time forgot. If you're ever in Dent you can't go wrong with this place. Tasty, well presented food that is a real surprise in a country cafe, a wife variety of perfectly... More

We've visited Stone Close a number of times before with our Flatcoated Retriever and had lunch when we've previously stayed in Dent on holiday (Spring 2013 & Winter 2013). Firstly, the food is lovely, homely and filling. Portions perfect, quality great and selection ideal. The cakes are yummy and moist. This time however we stayed for 3 nights. We had... More
