Been to Hebden many times but on this occasion managed to get a table in Mooch. We ordered two hot ciabatta sandwiches and a kids meal for my daughter. Wow....the food was amazing and the side salad was equally a nice. My daughter loved her kids meal too. All the food was divine and we will definitely be returning for some more yummy nosh on our next visit to Hebden.

Thank Castlequeen23

Dear Castlequeen, thanks for your great feedback! In the summer time have more space in the back yard, with new roof and lighting soon, so hopefully no need to book in advance.
See you soon the next time you are in town. Jana and Mark

Left a Hunter brolly in this cafe... So .. Phoned up the next day to be told " yes" it's here ... We will put it in the back ready for you to pick up ... My husband called over two days later and the manageress sheepishly exclaimed that a member of staff had "borrowed" it and she would find out who was responsible and contact us...
A week later and many phone calls ( us to them as they couldn't be bothered returning our calls) we found out the brolly had been taken to the employees sister and was currently on holiday in Nantwich !!......
More phone calls and a promise of the brolly being posted to us on the 16 th November led to more waiting until I suggested a monetary refund on the 24 th.....
"no no " they said at Mooch cafe " we have the parcel tracking number ..it must be the post offices fault .."
More calls.... More waiting ... "We will now order you a brolly from Amazon..."

The original brolly arrived ... Six weeks later on the 5 th December ... It had only been posted on the 3rd December !!!!!!!!!!!!.....
No Amazon brolly arrived .. Obviously..

When I tried to contact Mooch for an apology and some explanation of the constant lies that I had been fed ... Conveniently everyone was too busy to speak to me ....
This cafe has treated me appallingly and does not care about it's customers.

The food maybe ok ... But be careful of your belongings ... If you mistakenly leave them ... they maybe "borrowed" and your expected to think there doing you a favour by giving them back !!!!!

Service speedy and friendly. Food simple but tasty. Great for a quick lunch or relaxed cuppa.
Only a small venue but the owners make the most of it and its a great little place .

We love this local cafe. Yes it does get busy but if you ring ahead they will happily reserve a table. There is now a new menu which is even better - more homemade choice than before, soup of the day, special of the day, great salads and homemade cakes. There's also heaps of choice for veggies and vegans (soya milk available). The staff are brilliant and they are very child friendly. Recent floods have forced a re-decorate but in wonderful style. Altogether reminiscent of the best dutch cafes. Definitely worth a visit if in Hebden.
