Great cherry scones !

A traditional tea shop trying very hard to please. The elegant tea service and tea in a pot with hot water, was in contract to the cherry scone that was far from dainty however it was light and full of fruit so had no problem finishing it at all.

Having spent the day walking in Wensleydale we returned to Masham just as the rain begun. We came across this cafe off the square where we had a lovely selection of cake and tea to choose from. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was very good. When we return to the area walking we now have a... More

Visited on the 24th April 2015 for lunch. After looking at the menu, it seemed a little overpriced but as we didn't know the area we thought we'd give it a try. I ordered the Brie and grape sandwich (£6.50). I appreciate that it is titled 'Brie and grape sandwich' however, I would have expected something more than one slice... More

Popped in this place whilst looking at the markets with my wife. It is very traditional and simple, but I felt this was part of its charm, as it presented as a tea room and wasn't trying to be a restaurant. Afternoon tea was lovely, and very reasonable at only £12 for two. Sandwich's were good, but made in "batches".... More

Lovely tearoom, cakes looked fantastic but we visited for breakfast most mornings as it was just around the corner from our cottage and had a fabulous view of the square in Masham where all life happens! Sausage sandwiches were fabulous and am only sorry this isn't closer to our home

This is most definitely the best tearoom in the area. All food is homemade and you can tell straight away by the quality and excellent taste. Staff are all friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I tried the afternoon tea with scone, cake, and sandwich of your choice. Everything was lovely and on par with Betty's for quality. Having... More

Freshly prepared coffee and cake on a cold November morning overlooking the town square/market place (car park at the time - honesty box of 50p!) Warm, welcoming staff and delicious smells of cooking breakfast but the décor and furniture is a little tired. Wouldn't stop me from going again though.
