We were recommended this cafe by friends and weren't disappointed. The food was great and the menu was varied. We hit the cafe at a lunchtime rush and this meant service was a little slow but this didn't detract from the overall experience. The setting is what makes the cafe - both inside and out both offer great views.

Living locally we had heard of the Mill Yard Cafe from numerous friends but never visited. We put that to rights last week when we called in for lunch. It was clear to us why everyone else was so happy as we were too. Call in and give it a try if you're in the area, you won't be disappointed.

Drove up to Shap on a monday, during our week in the area to visit the pub that we went to in 2015 to find it closed down, travelled a bit further to find the Cafe we've also visited before was closed on Mondays!!! Turned off the road to head towards Appleby and came across this little gem, where the... More

Setting was very quaint and peaceful, but clearly a popular choice given the number of people there. Excellent service and highly recommend a visit. Next door is the Appleby Brewery and I would suggest popping in there aswel.

Called for lunch. Delightful setting, eat in or out. Good and varied menu offering freshly prepared food with friendly and good service. Must also have a look round this pretty village. Would recommend to anyone wanting the delights of a typical country village and experiencing quality food.

The food was authentic with some interesting twists, the atmosphere was lively with good music playing, however, you could hear yourself and the people at the table talk! Service was friendly and professional. A brilliant night out, highly recommend it.

The Mill Yard Cafe was recently recommended by friends so we decided to have lunch there a couple of weeks ago. It was a very hot day and as we had the dog with us had to eat outside. It was busy as expected and the only spare table didn't have shade but we were comfortable there anyway. We were... More

Sunday visit as we knew we could get good food here and then stroll around the gardens of Mill House and walk around the village which also has a ford. A varied menu with a good choice of dishes. From the "Specials" board I chose prawn and salmon quiche which came with a small side salad and crisps, my husband... More
