Stopped for a bite to eat and drink whilst out on the bikes. A huge menu plus gluten free options as well. Excellent food served by friendly staff. Highly recommended.

We did spot another tea shop further on up a slope but it didn't look too inviting when we looked in so went back to the Old Barn. It's a small spot so not too many tables if it's busy in Malham. Typical tea shop snack lunch menu and, as with everywhere else in the area, prices lean toward being... More

I have visited this cosy little café a few times over the years, the latest being this weekend. It is set in the very busy village of Malham, and caters for the walkers visiting the area as well as the locals. Muddy boots are welcome. They have an area outside (some under cover) as well as the inside space. They... More

This café is straightforward and relaxed, they welcome boots and coats and so its perfect to round off a long walk. We enjoyed a lovely cream tea with plenty of tea and soft, fresh home made scones.

Popped in for a cup of tea after comlpleting 2 of Britain's hardest cycling climbs. I was a bit shaky from a lack of sugar and the lovely staff saw this. The lady gave me her last carbohydrate gel off of the shelf. I regularly pop in for beans on toast if I'm in the area and its always quick... More

Stopped for a tea & cake (flapjack) nice friendly place that welcomes walkers, dogs etc. Nothing to posh in terms of decor but what we had went down well.

Stopped by on a cold February Tuesday for a snack and to warm up. We enjoyed home made mushroom soup and a toastie, both of which were hot, tasty and nicely presented. For a small countryside cafe there was a good range of veggie options and even gluten free foods. I did plan to squeeze in a cream tea as... More

Visited one Sunday with a hangover, after a short walk and what a find! Excellent homemade spicy carrot and lentil soup with a toastie and salad on the side for less than a fiver and delicious. We will be back (hangover optional). 😋
