Returned to Ampleforth after the disappointment of closure through lockdown. Alternative location in the Windmill is very safe and a lovely spot. Great menu despite not having the famous apple cake. I enjoyed the fresh ploughman's platter and all other meals were mouth watering

Response from Claire E, Marketing at Ampleforth Abbey

Thank you so much for your review. I'm so sorry the Apple Cake wasn't available when you visited. It is going to be a daily staple on our soon to be updated menu so should be available if you return. I'm so glad you all enjoyed your meals, it's always to lovely to hear good feedback.

Lovely, unusual place and a perfect stop over for our coast 2 coast bike ride. Very good food and access to our own private bar. Most of all, excellent customer service from sophie who was exceptional.

Whilst not being able to enter the Abbey, even just a walk around the surroundings are enough to inspire peace and a sense of well-being.

The monks of Ampleforth Abbey have put a great deal of effort is remodelling the access to the visitor centre, Abbey Shop and Tea room (in the best North Yorkshire tradition). This place is inspiring and charged with its 200-year history in “the valley”. The Ampleforth honey and cider are both from the monastery orchards containing no less than 40 varieties of apples. The Ampleforth craft beer is also a delight. Everybody is so welcoming. Will return!

Visited here for a couple of hours on a Monday afternoon. Extremely impressive from the outside as well as on the inside. Very helpful and chatty members of staff in both the Visitor Centre and the shop. Definitely worth a visit, but not a huge amount of history or beauty on the inside of the Abbey itself.
