Family Party! We booked a table and chose a party package, when we arrived we were shown to our table that had been decorated with balloons and serviettes, our food was delicious and we were looked after throughout! We had ordered a celebration cake with...sparkling candles which was delicious, we had a fabulous day and will recommend to our friendsMore

On the Day of our Departure from Malton ,we were pointed in the direction of Chapter One Bistro,after looking for somewhere to take Breakfast. We entered the Premises and Ordered Tea for Two,along with Scrambled Eggs on Toast, and a Bacon and Egg Buttie. The...Bistro is run by Two Young Ladies and on the Morning it was quite relaxed and not too Busy. Food was decent enough,and I believe reasonable in Price too, although my Other Half footed the Bill.Looks a Popular little Eatery and Worth a Visit.!!More

We booked a meal for Saturday evening at 6pm, they have a 2 for £20 menus. We didn’t want to order from that and asked for Steak and Ale pie but they didn’t have any which was disappointing. We had beef burgers instead off the...offer which I felt were a little pink but they tasted ok. Overall an ok restaurant to visit if you want a quiet place with a fairly limited menu.More

We stopped in Malton with our dog on the way home from a trip to the East coast. Delighted to come across this gem and sit outside in the sunshine. We ordered breakfast and coffees, the latter being brought to us first with a bowl...of water and little plate of biscuits for our dog. Wish I had known beforehand that they also have a doggie menu, what a treat that would have been. Our breakfasts were really delicious and they have G/F bread. All that, great value for money, AND being served by the lovely Alice! You are managing to achieve what many don't even strive for. Thank you for a great experience.More

Nice, pleasant place. Coffee was good - though being asked if I wanted milk with my black coffee was a bit tedious. As I explained, it wouldn't be black if I had milk in it, would it?

Arrived at about 230 on a Saturday. Did not realise it was half an hour from closing. Ordered americano but served poor quality instant coffee. Probably because they had switched the machine off so staff could go home. I wouldn't have minded had they been...honest. I'd have happily gone across the road to one of the other cafes instead. A lot of very young staff which seems to reflect the quality of the place.More

Actually you asked for a de caff and was told we only have full roasted beans in the coffee machine, but we could make you an instant de caff, which you okayed!! So why then give us a negative review?? After all the lockdowns I...More

Decided to lunch here . Only one young girl serving and it was busy. The waitress was very pleasant and apologized for long wait to order. We ordered Yorkshire ham and cheese toastie. The sandwich arrived quickly but with wafer thin ham certainly not what...I would call Yorkshire ham. The bread was not what we expected. Looked like value white bread. Not good value at all. Will certainly won't be visiting again.More

Hi, I think you have posted this review on the wrong page as chapter one don’t for one do toasties, don’t have Yorkshire ham on our menu, and always have more than one member of our team working! Please remove your damaging review, many thanks
