Superb, well priced food and drink. Good service and conveniently located. Fantastic pit stop. Accommodating cafe with a surprising amount of room inside! Don't be fooled by the small exterior. Would recommend.

This cafe is more of a restaurant in a cafe setting. Nice and cheap with great quality food. They offer takeaway for hikers and walkers, but parking is a little difficult. Reasonable prices

Good value cafe providing lovely cakes, scones, meals, soup, sandwiches, all day breakfasts and teas and coffees. £2.30 for take away sandwiches is a bargain especially when they are made on such fresh bread and packed full of fillings. We also ate here on another day and had scones and tea - the scones were one of the nicest we... More

This week we have been staying in Malham and visited the Old Barn on a number of occasions. The staff are fantastic and extremely helpful and the food is wonderful, I recommend a breakfast (full English) and a cream tea. Not at the same time of course, that would be greedy! The lunch time sandwiches are great and they do... More

Should have been great but vile green mugs, awful toilet and dirty and worn out chairs and tables. The food and tea/ coffee were good. There is not alternative in village so you kind of have to go. Really should do better.

Friendly little cafe in the centre of the village. Reasonably priced menu and only a little more expensive for gluten free sandwich which is fair enough. Good cup of tea too.

When walking to Malham Cove (beautiful!), we stopped in this cafe for lunch. The service was fantastic. Very accommodating for a large number of (sweaty) people! Beautiful food and refreshing drinks served in local mugs.

Hot day on the limestone pavement, tired legs and sore knees after the steps, desperate for a cup of tea! We stopped here for tea for all, carrot cake for my young neice, oodles of tea for my wife, and cream teas for my American friend and myself. Was it good? Oh yes, could it have been better, hot water... More
