We arrived just after a party of cyclists, but despite this the service was friendly and the breakfast fare absolutely hit the spot. I'd particularly recommend the full breakfast including the oatcakes. We left feeling set up for the day - perfect!

Good Coffie and excellent carrotcake. When the weather is nice you can sit on the picknick tables outside. Inside is a lot bigger then it looks!!!

Out on my motorcycle this Sunday and decided to call in at the Olde Smithy at Monyash for a coffee. Lovely village location and a lovely cafe. Staff were very helpful and my coffee was lovely. Recommended for everyone.

What a great find this cosy warm cafe was today, was greeted by friendly staff, offering a good choice of food & warm drinks after a chilly walk...Was impressed with the warm Apple cake served with ice cream. Atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable.....the breakfast that was being served looked most tempting.....a must for my next visit

Well, I said we'd be back and we were. Quick stop for a bacon and egg bap. The quality and flavour of the meat, the fresh egg and size of the bag it is served on make this worth every penny. Off along the Monsal trail to walk it off before returning for a cake and tea later.

We had a great 30th birthday meal for my son with our extended family at the Old Smithy in Monyash. They opened especially for us in the evening. The food was excellent as was the service and we all had a very enjoyable evening. Many thanks.

Thank ncg2017
