Quintessential English charm at its best. A delightful and tasteful place to eat homemade cakes whilst soaking in the breath taking views of Cautley Spout and the hills beyond. Well worth the effort to get to this wee out of the way spot.

We stayed for dinner (rabbit pie and a veggie lasagne). Prior to our meal we sat in the parlour where there were comfortable armchairs and a magnificent fire. We loved the rosehip cordial and the nettle cordial. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the meals. Both meals were excellent. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed and we chatted away...

In the North Yorkshire National Park between Kirby Stephen and Sedbergh this cosy cafe/restaurant nestles beside the road under the howgills. Step into the lounge and sit beside the fire range. Watch your head if over 6ft as the ceilings are low! Homemade cakes and fare, hearty and delicious. Had rabbit pie with a lovely suet crust, followed by Dulverton...

We called in for lunch and sat in the conservatory watching the birds and admiring the stunning view. The fish cakes were absolutely delicious as were chipped sweet potatoes. Can highly recommend the Lemon Delicious and the Dulverton Tart.
