Situated in the heart of historic Clitheroe, just a stone's throw from the castle, Molly's is a popular eatery where you'll find sumptuous, feel-good food "served with pride as well as a smile". Molly's offer a range of tempting tasty hot and cold dishes, accompanied by coffee by the cup or cafetiere, as well as a range of teas and cold drinks. From sandwiches and side orders, ciabattas and a children's menu to light bites and a lunch menu in comfortable surroundings look no further than Molly's.

Not bad but not great

Visited this cafe for the first time today and was told that it has been a cafe for many years but had changed hands only two weeks ago( early April 2015). I cannot agree with some of the previous negative reviews on this site. It was very clean, the prices looked more than reasonable, the staff... read more

Called in for a bit of lunch and first thing we noticed was the sticky table and dirty chair covers. Notice on the door said dogs allowed..a big turn off for me. Not sure why we stayed but decided to just have tea and cake anyway as the cakes looked ok. Cakes were nice but didnt fancy drinking the tea... More

Admittedly I'm not as big a fan of this place as my parents are, who, when visiting from Northern Ireland always seem keen to visit and constantly rave about it. That doesn't mean I dislike it, far from it in fact. Mollys is well decorated cafe with a menu offering a good variety of food, snacks and treats with excellent... More

We tried molly's for the first time today and now know the reason we've never been before. We ordered the pie chips peas and gravy and the all day breakfast. The pie couldn't be faulted but the gravy could only be described as school dinner gravy, very watery with no taste. The meal was meant to come with peas and... More

Lovely little place to call for coffee or more. Far far better than the chain coffee shops. Highly recommended - unless you have mobility difficulties - stairs to the loo very steep.

Today my husband, my son and I visited clitheroe. It was around 1 o'clock so we decided to look for a local cafe to eat lunch. We aren't familiar with the area but came across which looked like a nice cafe. We went in and found a table and was offered a menu promptly. A member of the 2 staff... More

we was in Clitheroe on Saturday and found this tea room and thought it looked like a good place to eat with good home cooked food. WRONG, I went for the Lancashire ploughman’s Served with generous helpings of sweet pickle, apple, ham, crumbly Lancashire and cheddar cheese. The generous helping of sweet pickle was 2 teaspoons, it had shop bought... More

Visited here yesterday for a full English, it was plentiful and tasty and hit the spot. The young lass serving was polite and friendly. The only negative I would have to say is I found the price a little on the steep side £18 for two full English) hence can not afford to visit too often, but on the whole... More
