Perfect location by the riverside and with sunshine one of the best spots in a delightful town. OK the good I have spoken about along with prices generally good,the service also good could not complain.

We had lunch here and sat outside overlooking the river and the viaduct. It was very entertaining watching people rowing! There was an indoor eating area too. The food was tasty and hit the spot. Service was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful. We asked for one of their walk leaflets which helped us see all that Knaresborough... More

Came here after reading reviews. We originally started off near the market up in the centre but wanted somewhere to eat with a bit more atmosphere. There is plenty of outdoor seating for a lovely sunny day but if it's cold there is an area with a few tables inside. We were a family of 6 dining for the afternoon.... More

We stopped by here for a cup of tea on Easter Saturday after walking through the beautiful town of Knaresborough. The location is fantastic next to the river. Service was good. We didn't have food but it looked good

We were enjoying a day out in Knaresborough and after exploring the shops and castle, we by chance wandered down to the river and the lovely looking cafes under the viaduct. We choose Marigold because they were hiring rowing boats but we wanted drinks and cake before. We told the boatman that we wanted to hire a boat after our... More

Fabulous breakfast in the sun on the river front. We both had a full English which was probably the best full English I have ever had. You can tell that the meat was of a very high quality and the beans looked to be homemade. Will definitely return.

Stopped by after visiting Mother Shiptons cave and loved the food on offer. My wife had the ploughmans and I opted for the "Sykes Burger" which had to be done as that's my name lol. Great food served in quick time at a beautiful location and not over priced as can so often be the case.

Came here with my wife and two boys. I loved the ice cream, they make it about 20 feet away from the shop and have some very interesting flavours. It was made all the better by the sunny day and great scenic location. You can also go on row boats very close by. I would really recommend a very to... More
