Went to the Bistro to celebrate my birthday with the family. The food was absolutely fantastic - the staff were brilliant. Try the burger - it's the best I've ever had. Will definitely be returning 👍

Visited Easter Sunday in the drizzly rain. So welcoming and friendly to all of us. The choice on the menu is extensive and even accommodated for a fussy 6yr old - stack of finger jam sandwiches!! We will definitely be back x

Back in home territory for Easter, my mum and I decided on this cafe as she hadn't been before, even though she's frequently in Grassington. The window design and decor caught our eye and inside was lovely too. Clearly a lot of thought has gone...More

This is the 2nd Bistro evening we have gone to and loved it as much as the first time. The food was well presented and equally as tasty. Lovely chilled atmosphere for a date night. Services is impeccable and always with a smile.
