“Could do better.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We have been regular visitors over the years and have generally welcomed the recent revamp with improved facilities, but this morning's visit was a bit of a disaster. It was a cold day but there was little evidence of heating..just one small overhead heater in the gift shop area, and the cafe felt cold and unwelcoming. We ordered filter coffee which turned out be be luke-warm at best. Then my wife bought some items in the gift shop only to find the cash desk unmanned when she tried to pay. maybe we'l try somewhere else next time we're in the area.

“Excellent again.”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Quick late lunch today, (23 may), and as usual it didn't disappoint. I had the lamb, which was delicious. This cafe restaurant is a welcoming place, with free parking and a bookshop and gift shop alongside. It's on the Monsal Trail too, which is handy if you want to cycle or walk. We drove!
Highly recommended, with pleasant staff and clean toilets too.

“Nice stop on the Monsal trail!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely lunch here after a walk on the Monsal trail. It has a big pay&display carpark and plenty of indoor & outdoor seating. It is set in a lovely old building and we were able to sit and enjoy conversation for hours whilst we drank tea and had our meal. Great spot!

Hyssop station is a great place to go. They are a book shop, cycle hire and wonderful cafe/restaurant with delicious home made food. It,s on the monsall trail which is ideal for a lovely walk, cycle, horse riding.

“Top Notch Food.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The food is really outstanding & the prices very reasonable. Granted it was a busy Sunday but the wait seemed to go on forever to be served. It might be an idea if customers could be informed of any delays or just given an average idea of waiting time. The staff were really lovely. Everything is well set out & I would go back again.
