Sit down and cuppa

Finished the 4 and a bit walk around Malham Cove so needed a sit down and a place to dry out! Picked this place out as it welcomed muddy boots. Lovely friendly staff, good choice of food and drinks. Had the cream tea, well you have to don't you! Very good value. Free wifi as well.

This is a friendly little cafe with good food and service. The menu isn't fancy but the meals and snacks are made using tasty local produce as well as home made cakes and lovely ice cream. Take away options also available. Highly recommended.

Came upon this cozy Café while touring through the Yorkshire Dales. Instantly feel in love with the place and their 'Muddy Boots Welcome' policy. The staff were very welcoming and had loads of local knowledge of local trails and sights. They have a good selection of hot drinks and cakes (The Yorkshire Tea and Fruit Scones with cream and Jam...

Having just done an exhausting walk with a young child and no cash it was great to find this lovely tea room that accepted cards. Two cream teas with real tea for the adults and a filling snack for junior was brilliant and delicious - It would have been the icing on the cake to have been given a pot... More
