Popped in for a cup of tea and couldn't resist a scone. Wow it was amazing, layered up with strawberries, jam and cream with an umbrella too!! It tasted even better than it looked so light and fluffy. Definitely recommend if you are in Skipton

Called in for a light bite and ordered sandwiches. They arrived quickly with a good serving of salad and vegetable crisps. Very nicely presented and of excellent quality and value for money. Very pleasant staff. Would recommend.

Stopped here for a nice family lunch. Had a slightly disorganised feel about it when we walked in as a group of 5, but actually, the food was well presented, the staff friendly, and the service timely. Not bad vfm, either.
