We popped in here for a quick drink and some fruit toast today. Service, toast and cider were good. I've dropped a star as the table was covered in fine grit and all the furniture looked like it needed a good clean. Also having an...A4 menu in a smallish font (yes I'm over 50) stuck to the back wall made it awkward for us to read it. We took a photo in the end as it was easier. Apart from that it was all OK.More

Having lived here for years and tried all the cafes and casual restaurants in the Holme Valley - this is honestly the best. Imaginative and varied food, friendly and attentive staff - including some youngsters, who I am glad to see working, who were professional,...careful, accurate and pleasant. My salad nicoise with generous seared tuna steaks was less than £9 and given the prices charged at other places in the area for pizza, pasta and sandwiches with cheap ingredients, this place is extremely good value. Delicious deserts - made on the premises, no cheating tray bakes bought in. Cider and apple juice from their press. Garden seating. Inside, partly outside. My new go to lunch out. If I only had one negative it'd be that I'd love to take my children here after school, but along with the other cafes and garden centres etc, it seems to close at 4 :0(More

Went for cider and a lunch, the food is really foos (pulled pork sandwich and ceasar salad and roasted new potatoes). Serice was really good, the staff chatty and friendly and attentive (asking if we wanted more drinks when ours were empty as we were...sat outside). Also very good coffee. Very nice place to spend a few hoursMore

Though the cafe closes at 4.00 do not expect to get a coffee after 3.45. We ordered about 3.40 to be told 10minutes later the machine had been cleaned down so no hot drinks available. Sad as we were looking forward to coffee and cake.More

We are sorry you were disappointed by not being served hot drinks after 3.30. It has been a standing practice at the café to stop serving food or hot drinks 30 minutes prior to closing time, since it opened a number of years ago;this is...More

Nice food, great location, dog friendly and the choice to sit indoors or out. I’m a regular and have recommended to others. It’s disappointing though that several times now I have visited and it has been closed. Today, Saturday 8th January 2022 I have set...off on a family walk in the rain to visit at the end. Only to see everything closed with a sign on the door saying it should be open today 10-5. You’re going to loose customers !!More

Very disappointed. Despite asking if we should pre order, and being assured not necessary there was insufficient pie of choice for our party. The food was luke warm and unappealing. If they do another pie night make sure to pre orderMore

Chanced upon this lovely cafe and enjoyed lunch with cider... so refreshing to encounter a different range of dishes and delightful ciders. This is a must on many levels and the service was perfect. Ruth

Lovely food, carefully prepared and presented. The young girls serving were so polite and it was a pleasure. I’m local and it was my first visit. I will definitely be returning. Prices are reasonable too.
