Been there several times in autumn and winter, each time with different set of friends and apparently, we all enjoyed the food and service so much. The servers are friendly, the food arrived quickly (we ordered tea and cakes), and the cafe was really cute and clean. The bathroom was also very clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back for... More

A very quaint little tea room - in Knaresborough Market Place, upstairs in "Ye Oldest Chymmist Shoppe in England". Two small rooms with low beams (mind your head!) and rickety floors. Serves great value food and drinks, with very pleasant staff.

Great location in Knaresborough market place. Reasonably priced menu and always tasty. The premises are a little tired however. They really could do with a refresh. The toilets are particularly in need of TLC. Staff friendly and efficient service even on the busy market days.

I visited these tea rooms after reading the good reviews. We had afternoon tea which came with a selection of sandwiches, cream scone and home made cake. The lady who served us was very friendly and pleasant. The building is very old and quaint but clean. I will most defiantly be visiting again in the near future.

Visited the other day with my mum. The food was brilliant: I had a gluten free blueberry sponge-type-cake which was divine. They also did not hold back on the portion sizes (something that happens regularly with gf deserts) My mother had a beasty slice of carrot cake which she enjoyed throughly. A very lovely lady with blonde hair served us... More

Cute tea shop and cafe with windows overlooking the market square. I meet with friends for lunch or a coffee every week during market day. The scones are wonderful. I like the lemon and lavender one but are several other flavours. Soups are also excellent. I can recommend the mushroom soup. Wait staff is friendly and service is excellent.

Another visit to these lovely tea rooms. Wonderful afternoon teas and lunches. Great staff and friendly atmosphere. The Welsh rarebit Yorkshire style is a must.

This small cafe is up a steep flight of stairs in the sweet shop in the market place. The decor is a bit tatty but don't be deterred. The food is excellent, the portions a good size and everything is good value. The staff are efficient and friendly.
