Toby's Tea Room, located next to the canal on the edge of a farm in Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire is a beautiful, serene and exceptionally welcoming establishment that you rarely come across, and when you do, you'll definitely want to visit again.It's as well hidden as they come, but a true gem. Set in an old barn conversion with a decent sized outdoor terrace, Toby's provides a chilled out, relaxed environment with a fantastic menu selection, amazing staff and a truly unique tranquil setting.The staff are so friendly and professional, the food and drink exceptional, and the overall experience is really something you have to experience to believe - what a find !!!! thanks Toby's for providing this getaway from everyday life !!!

Nice for all...including waggy tails!

Narrowboating along the Leeds Liverpool Canal in the pouring rain, we saw the sign for Toby's Tea Room and quickly moored up. We went in dripping wet and were greeted with open arms, our wet waterproofs taken to "dry out back" while we sat down to warm drinks and good food. It was so good that we came back in... More

Lovely find, good coffee, great home cooked food, friendly service, space for dogs and bikes, relaxed atmosphere, games for kids, outdoor seating for summer - including some covered tables, indoor seating for colder days, doggie menu - all in a really lovely location. Well worth the extra walk if you haven't made it that far along the Leeds to Liverpool... More

The title makes it sound like we were the first to happen upon this cafe on the canal but this is obviously not the case judging by the previous comments. However, since my wife and I have been walking the Leeds Liverpool canal we have dropped upon several other nice little refreshment stops and so to find another shouldn't really... More

Walking along the canal, there is a little gem to be found. A wonderfully situated resting hole. This cafe has indoor and outdoor seating. It allows dogs and disable facilities. It has an area for pushchairs and bikes. The food is reasonably priced and a fantastic variety. The staff are friendly and helpful. In fact so good going for my... More

We took our 2 year old granddaughter for a walk to see the ducks when the heavens opened so we dashed into Toby's Tea Room for refreshments and shelter! We have been lots of times over the three years we have lived in Apperley Bridge and always had excellent food and service. The rain got gradually worse and it was... More

Stopped there for breakfast with family, it being Father's Day, all I can say disappointed. A very basic breakfast at very expensive prices, also childrens breakfast served on plastic plates ( children in question being 10 and 8 ) not a nice touch. Staff not very helpful and unwilling to change a meal ie, piece of bacon for a sausage.... More
