Just stopped off here for a quick coffee on a walk between Apperley Bridge and Saltaire. What a lovely cafe with really nice staff. Espresso was perfect. I'll be back for a lunch soon.

If this was a rubbish cafe, it's position would probably still mean it would attract decent business, but if this cafe was in the centre of Leeds it would still be busy. Add to it that it's the best dog friendly place in West Yorkshire....More

Toby's Tea Room, located next to the canal on the edge of a farm in Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire is a beautiful, serene and exceptionally welcoming establishment that you rarely come across, and when you do, you'll definitely want to visit again.It's as well hidden as they come, but a true gem. Set in an old barn conversion with a decent sized outdoor terrace, Toby's provides a chilled out, relaxed environment with a fantastic menu selection, amazing staff and a truly unique tranquil setting.The staff are so friendly and professional, the food and drink exceptional, and the overall experience is really something you have to experience to believe - what a find !!!! thanks Toby's for providing this getaway from everyday life !!!
