Other snacks were available. We had tea and this was served in a massive tea pot. The toasties arrived with a good quality side salad. A busy place... More

Not only does Porters serve good coffee, provide an excellent venue to drink it in and is dog friendly but the owner also hosts very good fundraisers for the town. Always guaranteed of a welcome here.

My friend and I stopped here for a cup off coffee when we visited this town as part of a tour. We had a fun interchange at the shop, enjoyed our coffee.

A very enjoyable and experience, scones were fabulous, but as we support home grown farming products we would have preferred English or Irish butter rather than French.

We are regular visitors to Porters when we are visiting family in the area. Warm friendly service and great food. Standards have never dropped since we started coming several years ago. All food very nice and always presented well. Staff very helpful. Free wifi available.

Wonderful place to stop by for lunch or just coffee or tea. Roaring fire in one of the dining rooms. Very nice charm and service, too!

We visited Porters Coffee Shop when we visited North Yorkshire for the week. We was lucky to find this dog friendly coffee shop. It has to be the best dog friendly coffee shop we have been in and we have been in a few. There was dog biscuits and lots of cuddles from the lovely staff for our little dog.... More
