Having visited Doncaster we decided to make our return home via Bawtry and we were so pleased we did. It was only by luck we found The Classic and Contemporary Coffee Shop but what a little gem so much so that we will make it a regular haunt. The food and drinks were excellent as was the service our only... More

Apart from having a coffee, I hadn't eaten in this little gem in Bawtry for a few months, so decided to have lunch and was not disappointed. The staff are lovely, I had a sandwich with all the trimmings which is a meal in itself. Beautifully presented and lovely surroundings. Definitely the best place to have a nice lunch in... More

I really enjoy going here for just a coffee or a meal. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The homemade cakes are amazing. At the weekend I will sometimes call in first thing in the morning, I enjoy sitting outside in the lovely court yard and relaxing with a coffee. I have tried a few places in Bawtry but... More

Thanks for the great review. Much appreciated. If only we could get your dog to do us a review I am sure he would comment on the quality of the biscuits. Always nice to see you in the morning come rain or shine. Many many thanks. Simon More

If you are lucky with weather you can sit in the sun and people watch. Staff are very efficient and friendly. Escape for my lunch break and sometimes can be very busy but concerns over delay well handled professionally. Food is very good and portions are ample! Good range of hot and cold choices. Coffee good and no problem with... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a very nice review. It is very much appreciated as is your understanding over the lunchtime rush. We do try to get the staffing right but it is the one thing that I am always concerned about - two many on or too few on - you never know... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a traditional Sunday lunch at the "new" C&C coffee stop at Yorkshire Caravans - first class service and a delicious meal ... followed by Sonya's very own treacle sponge and, for me, ice cream, rather than custard. WOW ... transported to eighth heaven with it ... scrumptiously sublime!

A good location in Bawtry walking distance to all of the shops and bars and a nice outside space if it's a sunny day. Really friendly staff (they even opened for breakfast 15 mins early for us!) and a wide choice of food & drinks. Would like to go back for lunch as the menu looked great. Good to see... More

Thanks for the kind words. I think the review relates to our new shop at Yorkshire Caravans. I am hoping Tripadvisor will change its name on the list of Bawtry food outlets so people can be sure they are reviewing the correct premises. Thanks very much. We are pleased you enjoyed your experience there. Simon More

Lovely setting with many interesting shops nearby to pass the time after your visit. The coffee is great; I had an Americano and a banana muffin which went down a treat. Friendly staff and nicely decorated interior.

A fab place to meet friends and enjoy lunch. The sandwiches were fab, great bread, great fillings and fantastic coffee. The staff were lovely too. Although they were very busy I never felt like we were being hurried out. I will definitely be going back!
