“Fluffy Steak Pud”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

I found this cafe to be of mixed standards. On the plus side was a large home made steak pudding, a light and fluffy suet pastry filled with plenty of lean steak braised in a rich gravy. This was served with home made chips and mushy peas but I needed a second set of teeth to eat the chips as they were very chewy and the peas were all slop and very watery.
I also had a very good cup of fresh coffee.
Overall the food was good let down poor quality control.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We were travelling along the A59 to Harrogate and called for breakfast, which was superb and great value. More than lived up to the recommendations we had received. It was so good that we called again for a drink on the way back home.

Lovely staff who actually engage with the customers and make all the difference. The girl who served us would be a credit to any business.

Thank you very much for your review, visiting twice in some day is very gratifying. It is also really nice to hear that you were impressed with our customer service. We have a lot of regular and local customers but also aim that 1st time customers are made to feel just as welcome. It is nice to know that we succeeded in that.

“Lovely, huge Eccles cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

I often call here for a cup of tea and a very big eccles cake! It is a very good deli and café, serving good food. It is quite small and is usually very busy.
Orders are taken at the counter. Then the waitress brings your order to the table. The cakes are displayed near the tables so you can see what is available.

We have eaten here any times and the food is excellent. Staff are very Professional and friendly and there is a great selection of good wines and unusual local produce to buy. The chicken liver pate is to die for

Thank you very much for you review, which is appreciated. We're really glad you like the chicken liver pate. Have you tried one of our black pudding scotch eggs? We think they're just as good.
