Hovingham Bakery and Spa Tea Room
Ranked #1 of 1 Coffee & Tea in Hovingham
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 6, 2013

My partner & I called for a cup of coffee on the way home from Hemsley. The Latte & Capaccino were good but expensive. We looked at the menu but the sandwiches & cakes were among the most expensive I have ever seen. Some other people were having these but they did not look worth the money.

Have been twice before and enjoyed the experience but not this time. We arrived and took a seat outside and I went inside to order. I was told that someone would come outside to take our order. After 10 minutes someone did and we ordered two filter coffees and a toasted teacake. 10 minutes later another couple sat down at the next table outside and ordered tea for two. Their tea arrived within 2 minutes and we were still waiting after 20 minutes. My friend went inside to see what was happening and was told that our order would be with us shortly. After another 5 minutes a girl came outside and apologised and said that we were having to wait because they were bringing our coffee out with our hot food. But we'd only ordered 1 single toasted teacake. How long does that take? After a few more minutes the girl came back out and said they actually didn't have any toasted tea cakes. So we'd been lied to and waited almost half an hour after placing our order to be told there weren't any teacakes. Terrible. As a result of this unnecessary delay we missed the tour we'd planned on doing at Hovingham Hall. Thanks for your terrible service Hovingham bakery. Get yourselves sorted out!

We visited this lovely little bakery and tea room whilst passing through Hovingham and found the food delicious and enjoyable so much so we went back the next day. We also found the staff really friendly and very attentive especially a lady in the tea room. After eating in the tea room we came away with a bag full of lovely bread and cakes from the bakery and can recommend the fat rascals. Thank you

Thank Billybizz

We called in for a light lunch for 2 and came out with a bill for £22, for a sandwich and a tea, and a chicken pastie without chicken filling and a filter coffee. On informing the waitress about lack of filling she replied that we have had same complaints before!! the bakery assistant asked her what we were complaining about and then said we don't make them here! so that was that!
!Obviously don't quality control or care about their Customers satisfaction.
We had tea in Hovingham hall tea room later and was so much nicer and far better value

Visited part way round a cycle ride. Great coffee well made, food way lovely, I had the ham and cheese scone - set me up nicely for the ride home. Pity about the snow/sleet and rain on the way.
