A delightful tea and coffee house, on the main street, and always full of local people. Newspapers and magazines, a hot fire on a chilly day, quality coffee and they are now doing some evening "themed" meals. A nice place to go and sit and relax.

Got to say the coffee was wonderful and nice and airy surroundings but the sandwiches were pretty ordinary and quite expensive. (cheap bread?)

We had cream tea at Porters and the scones were superb. The tea was also excellent. The service could be a bit more friendly but it is still a nice place.

Stopped here for an afternoon ice cream and we were not dissapointed! The ice cream is straight from italy and looks mouth watering. Best ice cream in helmsley, coupled with friendly service and good outdoor seating made it a great visit.

We have popped in here several times in the past for their delicious cakes and tea/coffee. We decided to have lunch there this time and ordered paninis with a difference-mozzarella, sun dried tomato and pesto ( a change from cheese and tomato!) served with a side salad. They were brought to the table by a person we presumed was the... More

We had the prawn cocktail and a sharing platter to pick at with a lovely white wine.. It was super.. We returned the next day for the... More

My favourite cafe in Helmsley where I go every year. Cultured ambience, good coffee, dangerously nice cakes and toasted whatsitsnames, lovely staff. The girls are always turned out really nicely with just that suggestion of uniform that is to be applauded. I spend several days in Helmsley every year at The Farmyard Party which is a huge biker weekend bash... More

Visited Yorkshire a couple of times in the past month - first visit, picked Porters by chance on a day out in the North York Moors when I happened to be in Helmsley at coffee time. Second visit, I went to Helmsley specifically to have coffee at Porters! Really special little place - friendly, lovely atmosphere (all that Yorkshire warmth!),... More

Delightful setting. We sat in the Courtyard in a setting made beautiful by exquisite flowers in hanging baskets. Very relaxing. We decided to order a cold meats/ cheeses with salad platter to share and tea to drink. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. When we asked they told us wifi was available even outside. We shall certainly... More
