I often use this fantastic cafe on Saturday mornings. Great coffee with excellent treats flans pies and pastry you can't go wrong. Excellent service from a young staff I wouldn't go anywhere else in Ripon for tea coffee and cake.

Worth making a detour for if you in Ripon you won't be disappointed.

Thank Simon W

Stopped for alight lunch and had two excellent meals, one tart and one main salad, could not be faulted except that the excellent service was very slow ( they did apologise though )

Called in for a coffee whilst visiting the Cathedral, which is only 100 yds away. Nice ambience and lovely little courtyard at the rear to enjoy when the weather is good. Friendly and attentive staff. Whilst we only had coffee, we noted an interesting and not over-priced menu. Closes relatively early (4 pm).

Chimes is the quintessential English lunchroom! The food is perfectly delicious and the staff friendly. The place is full of locals, which makes it fun. Be sure to visit the cathedral just down the street.

This is a nice café near the Cathedral in Ripon, we had a lovely Yorkshire blue cheese and pear salad which was delicious. The service was quick and the staff were very nice.
The café is small but with a nice ambience and there is a small conservatory section which is nice and light. Very good value for money.
