Cafes in pretty villages like Helmsley tend to attract a lot of overpriced tearooms. Fortunately the Castlegate Cafe isn't like that. There is a wide choice of food, The portions are generous,the prices reasonable, and the service is good.

My favourite cafe in Helmsley, never miss a visit when near here. Food is always delicious no matter what you have and even a cake after if you have any room left. Will forever be on my list.
