Lovely quaint tea shop, excellent value for money. Friendly helpful staff, my only gripe was the waitress who although helpful and polite, displaying her did rift and tattoos did not fit in with the ambiance of a traditional Yorkshire tea room.

Lovely atmosphere and cakes as usual...delicious scones and cucumber sandwiches but ham was 'plastic'...used to be good cooked ham...cakes dainty and gorgeous and the service is always friendly and beautifully done.Definitely one of the best in North Yorkshire and a treasure to be proud of!

We went for afternoon tea yesterday. It was absolutely brilliant. The food was beautiful, the service was second to none and it is excellent value for money. In fact I would personally say it's too cheap! Will definitely go again.

I would ring and book today if you can - we have often rung and booked on the day and managed to get a table but with it being a Saturday when you want a table then I would try and book today if you can.
