It is usually my habit to only write reviews of my positive experiences on tripadvisor but on this occasion I feel compelled to break my rule. I visited the Lavender Rooms today with my family for a lunchtime meal and initially all was well. We...More

Called in this late November day for lunch. Had enjoyed a good walk around riverside area and then back in to town. Some of eateries were not serving food and we fancied something warming and nice yo eat. The outside consists of a several hundred...More

Charming cafe with traditional ambience. Lovely service. Tea for Two looked great value, however serving 'speciality' teas via a tea bag doesn't quite do it. The cappuccino sadly arrived very tepid and the gluten free ground rice cake with honey & lemon could have a...More

We go here for lunch every time we visit Knaresborough. It's a really old building in the centre of town. It looks a bit 'touristy and twee' from the outside, but don't be deceived. All their food is homemade and is good value. I had...More

I stupidly thought that the whole place had undergone a refurbishment, it hasn't only the outside painted. We went in on a wet Sunday too late to find anywhere else and realised on the stairs that the tearoom had not been decorated since our last...More

I love this cafe. It's charming and original, totally unspoilt by time. The little sweet shop beneath is also as charming. So quaint.

On our first visit to knaresbrough we came across this business which we both found intriguing. The building had such a wonderful story behind its history. We only required refreshments and are great tea drinkers. I asked a pleasant member of staff whether I could...More
