We were so impressed that a week later after a 7 mile walk from Cloughton we returned, this time for lunch. What a great find, warm goats cheese tart with salad and a smoked salmon ciabatta... More

Visit the Yew Tree Cafe quite regularly. I love their pate and toast with side salad. The Cafe is always busy and the food is consistently good.

Waitress service in this popular village tea room and cafe. It offers an extensive menu and appears to have a healthy regular trade. The service was good and the food and drink of a high standard. Highly recommended.

Delightful cafe, ideal place for a homemade cake & a cuppa, or a delicious lunch with traditional favourites or something original. I have always found the staff extremely friendly and polite 😊 I have eaten here once in the evening too and that was a real treat.

Not a very friendly place. The potion of the cake was rather small for the price even against others in the area. Staff were not friendly.Does not make me want to visit them again
