Great breakfast

Peak sausage sandwiches are THE best here but they soon go so get in early! Fabulous tea and quality coffee, although do ask if you prefer it a little stronger. Cakes are scrummy and fresh and plenty of choice All in all, this is a super little cafe to call in whilst out and about in Barnard... read more

Went in for a mid morning snack. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Spotted the afternoon tea on the menu so went back for that - really enjoyed it. Couldn't finish the last piece of cake so they packed it up for us to take away.. Ten out of ten for service

The soup was lovely . Although nothing obviously vegan was on the menu, staff were very helpful in trying to offer something suitable. As a result I had a wholesome and hearty soup. By way of improvement, I would suggest the cafe offers at least one vegan dish (even the most avid carnivores eat vegan sometimes). This place is so... More

I have just been in Clarendon's Cafe - it is so not like your normal cafe - for a bite to eat with my Mam today. The building itself is lovely and atmospheric with a working fire, stone walls and wood panelling that is painted in a flat gloss. There is a little shop with lovely things in on the... More

Popped in for a pot of tea with family one afternoon. I havent visited since it changed from Market Place Teashop, it has been redecorated with new furniture and it looks really good. Still have the traditional tea pots. Menu has a good choice.

Visited here this morning & had the full English breakfast. It's cooked to order & some of the ingredients are locally sourced from a butcher further along the street. e.g. the sausages taste like old fashioned sausage not processed rubbish Great service. Nothing is a trouble to the staff. Silver tea & coffee pots with plenty hot water & milk... More

Cracking place! Beautifully old style, real fire roaring at the back of shop. The loveliest, efficient, smart waitresses made the experience even better. Lots of activity And good view of high street......oh... And the food was lovely too! China cups and silver tea pots.
