It is a pleasure to see old farm buildings utilised and brought back to life and the Kitchen Garden Cafe at Askham Hall Gardens is just such a place. After a stroll around the lovely gardens at the hall nothing could be more perfect to finish off a visit than to enjoy morning coffee, light lunch or afternoon tea, in the converted buildings.
We visited on a very cold day and were welcomed by a lovely hot roaring stove fire, found excellent service and lovely food. The atmosphere is different and not tea-shoppy, you actually feel as though you are stepping back in time. I had a lovely coffee and delicious cake. I cannot comment on the main meals because we didn't try them but we will definitely be going back later in the summer to see how the gardens are developing and perhaps to enjoy lunch.
One can only wish the project well and I feel sure the venue will grow in popularity.
