“very disapointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Visited here guided by the good reviews and was very disapointed! I ordered a bakewell tart and hot chocolate, the drink was small and lukewarm the tart was a major let down, the pastry base was overly greasy and the sponge top was stodgy.
Over priced with poor selection and quality of cake.

“Old fashioned slow-food - brilliant !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This cafe is unspoilt by the insincerity of most modern purveyors of service: no glib, superfluous intimations to 'Enjoy !'. Instead, the simple, very tasty food - sourced from identifiable butchers - is delivered like a mum (but a tad slower) from the kitchen. It's a delight to relax in this nice stripped wood cafe. Character and the plaudits of the local shop-owners will ensure that this cafe will always be recommended to visitors as I was. Good luck Howgills Bakery !
