“Lovely lunch at Berrys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Travelling from Aysgarth Falls back along to Leyburn we decided to stop for lunch at Berrys, having passed in once before and later looking it up online. It is certainly one of the nicer farm shop/cafes we have been it, the atmosphere was nice, the design of the cafe is great with nice little touches like the lightshades made of sacking fabric and the wool cloud decorations. Our meals from the specials board - a goats cheese and onion tart and roast ham and eggs were locally sourced and home made. Despite there appearing to be few staff the food was fairly quick to appear and service was friendly. Not over-expensive either really. The shop seemed to have the usual high quality (perhaps a little expensive) range of food and gifts. A damp winters day when we visited but I expect lovely in the summer when they open the courtyard and a novelty for children to see the donkey, llamas and chickens etc. Would go again.

“A real gem in God's own country!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Just spent a few hours today at Berry's farmshop and cafe and we enjoyed every minute. It is in a beautiful setting a few miles outside of Leyburn in Wensleydale and the farm, buildings and grounds are immaculate. There are animals to see and stroke: 2 Kune Kune pigs, some Buff Orpingtons, 2 Llamas and some cute brown sheep. There is a lovely deli, craft shop and on-site butchers too. All the staff were absolutely lovely and really helpful. And I haven't even mentioned the lunch yet! We had lasagne,chips and salad - really lovely home-made and tasty - interesting salad and nice coleslaw and my other half had a burger and chips -the burger was locally reared beef and had was topped with bacon and Wensleydale cheese - also with a nice salad and coleslaw. I had a great glass of red - which at 2.95 I thought was a good price. The cakes and tray bakes looked delicious but we never got to those - put it this way we won't be eating tonight! From the farm there is a lovely walk down to Redmire Falls which is well signed across their land and is just a mile all round - it was stunning - not as impressive as Aysgarth but as we were the only people on the walk it was something quite special. Berry's should be really proud of what they have achieved!

“Wonderful breakfast in a relaxed setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Lovely setting with plenty of parking. Had the full English breakfast served with wonderful homemade sundried tomato bread and proper butter and a huge pot of tea. Excellent - couldn't fault it. Liked the farmshop with some unusual gifts available for purchase.

“Smart Bistro type cafe with Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Our first visit after passing last weekend, and we will be going again. Lovely surroundings compliment the very nicely renovated farm buildings. The two Koole Koole pet pigs were an unexpected treat in the pen next to the spacious car park.
Excellent sandwich and coffee with tasty cake to follow. A welcome lunch stop. They also do breakfast. Great food very reasonably priced in beautiful setting. Bet this becomes a very popular stop :-)

“Special.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

So much more than it says on the tin. This "farm shop/cafe" is so much more and was the best place we found to eat in the whole area whilst travelling around.

We ate here 3 times and each time ate something different from the menu and each time even something that didn't sound particularly interesting arrived looking fantastic and tasted amazing.

The building and surrounding area is stunning and deserves to be called a restaurant and food hall. The farm has a top quality butchers and a deli counter, you must buy some meat and cheese to take home Very knowledgeable staff and there was a young man who worked in both the shop and cafe who was beyond helpful, welcomng and friendly. We both commented on how refreshing it was for someone so young to really take pride in their work.

If you want Sunday lunch you need to book, this place gets packed with locals and visitors alike which says it all really. We had breakfast of a full english, a cheeseburger and chips (sounds bog standard but was so good and tasty - excellent produce used) and the cauliflower cheese soup which they had used their very own "Fools Gold" cheese in. I never iagined soup could be so good and so delicious.

The coffee is one of the best I have ever had in the UK.

The best thing is if you enjoyed the food you can buy most of it to take home in the farm shop.
