we call here pretty regularly for lunch. The food is good and the staff very helpful and friendly. In summer the home made quiche is mouth watering and in winter the soup very appetising. If you have left room there is always a good display of home made cakes. Worth a visit even though it is a bit out of... More

We dropped in for breakfast and it really was superb - under £5 for massive "farmers" breakfast (the biggest one they do) - no complaints at all - friendly staff prompt service - will certainly drop in again next time I am in area

My wife and I stopped off at these tea rooms one Sunday morning. The service and food were outstanding and everything was very reasonably priced. This is one of the best tea rooms we have ever eaten at. I would strongly recommend it. There is a lovely "Shed" that you can eat in if the weather is a little breezy,... More

This is one of our favourite cafes, we frequently stay in Burton on Strather and walk the 3 miles along the river to sample the cakes here. I had the coconut and lime, my hubby had the coffee and walnut, accompanied by Lattes. Not only were they delicious but the cake portion was very generous. Friendly staff and quick service... More

Popped in here today after a walk around Julians Bower and Alkeborough Flats. Have been before and enjoyed the food. Again today we were not disappointed. Although busy, the friendly younger waitress came to take our order which was delivered very quickly. We had scones, hubby a sultana one with jam and myself a cherry one with just butter and...

Made a trip here for my mother in laws birthday after reading reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the service good. My mother in law and I shared a plate of sandwiches and they kindly split them onto 2 separate plates both with salad and crisps. We all had a slice of... More

I seem to be incredibly unfortunate that every time I visit I am told they have "run out of food". It doesn't help that one of the staff is quite rude and abrasive. The last occasion we arrived after a lovely walk at Julian's Bower. It was 3pm on a Sunday and they state they are open until 4pm. Interestingly... More
