Visited for lunch. Great atmosphere, friendly relaxed service and good food and coffee. Gluten free options appreciated - others charge extra or don't bother.

We did not get to go in to the Marigold Café as it was too busy but they have an 'annexe' across the road tat sells some of the best ice cream that you will ever taste. A must place to visit if in Knaresborough.
