Yet again, another treasure we stumbled across on our travels! Warm welcome, free tastings and reasonably priced hot drinks served in style with a smile. Needless to say we left with some unusual preserves that will be a welcome addition to both the breakfast table...More

We were walking across from Upper Wharfedale to Hawes and stopped for a welcome pot of tea which was served outside for us at a picnic bench. Very friendly and helpful staff. A good find.

The tasting part of the business was fine, and the jams and other preserves are lovely. However, We thought a charge of £4 for a pot of tea for two (one tea bag) was excessive and the cake portions were small for £2. Our fault...More
