We called in to High Nelly’s for a quick coffee today before heading off for Sunday lunch locally. We sacked off the Sunday lunch and decided to have brunch here instead. I’m so pleased we did! We all loved our food: bacon cobs, scrambled eggs...with toast, a full English, and eggs benedict. Great teas and coffees too. As a dedicated tea fanatic, I’m always pleased to get an extra pot of hot water! We all enjoyed the quirky surroundings and the socially-distanced tables. I wish I’d had space for a cream and jam scone; they looked spectacular.More

We had an excellent lunch in their clearly covid-adapted yet cosy and personable seating area. Excellent food and coffee with some traditional Swedish offerings too which was an unexpected bonus! They also had very tasty gluten free options. I woudl highly recommend it!

Good food and coffee, albeit a very limited range available. Server was very helpful in giving us tips on the local pubs. Good social distancing in place.

Had a great Take-out coffee and bacon cob - we will be back! Lovely gentleman serving - thank you! Really soft cob and tasty bacon - they’re open Thursday to Sunday at the moment so make sure you visit!

We popped in for 5 takeaway cakes. At last, a tearoom where the fantastic quality of delicious homemade cakes justifies the price! And smiling friendly service to boot.

Haven’t been to this cafe before so had no idea what to order. Every single thing about it was EXCELLENT. The Covid safety aspects were really good. Going in one entrance and collecting your order from a different place. Food served in cardboard boxes with...wooden disposable cutlery. And the food itself was exceptionally good. Cajun chicken salad and and an egg and prawn open sandwich followed by a slice of ginger cake and a chocolate truffle. Absolutely delicious. Excellent service too.More

A very cheery cafe with good food and coffee. Especially good after a long walk in cold, wet hills! I would recommend the full breakfast if you are hungry or some of the beautifully poached eggs in the various combinations offered. A restful haven in...the Peaks.More

Full English breakfast and Eggs Benedict were both equally delicious. Lovely clean and comfortable surroundings.

I would think they would do their best to accommodate you all. You would need to phone and arrange with them. There is certainly room for more then 20 at a time. Good luck.
