Spotted this place on way back from Scotland. Later, on made a point of visiting and very glad we did. An amazing stock of appealing items, including their own charcuterie and home-reared meat. The place has recently featured on a BBC series, with Tom Kerridge....More

We were travelling up to Cumbria, and had the A66 not been snowed out we would never have found this lovely spot. We were there on a Sunday lunchtime and though busy, service was excellent and cheerful. Great value soup and sandwich with excellent coffees.

Called in today whilst visiting Settle. With only two waitresses service was rather slow as the place was very busy. The sandwiches were good and the chips were to die for. All in all definitely worth a visit.
