This was out first visit since the end of the long lockdown, and as always we were made very welcome and served excellent food. Usually we are afternoon tea or occasional luncheon customers, but this time we tried the breakfasts - and were not disappointed....Everything was lovely and served in very generous portions. The only minor drawback was the strongly perfumed diffusers in the room which really interfered with the taste and smell of the delicious food. Easily solved however - just ask the waitress to remove them, or discreetly do it yourself! The takeaway cakes make temptation completely worthwhile.More

We have just returned for a second time this week for takeaway - the sandwiches are made for you freshly and are really nice. The cakes are fantastic and the portion size is ridiculously large - we had coffee walnut cake and carrot cake ,...both delicious and also great value for money. Definite recommend if you are anywhere near Howden.More

Visited a couple of weeks ago with a friend. The food was excellent, all home made and at very reasonable prices. I had roasted tomato soup and tea loaf with a lovely proper pot of tea leaf tea. Great service too. Thank you, looking forward...to working my way down the cake selection! Would highly recommend.More

Pleasant and friendly staff and Covid reassuring safety standards. Very nice cakes and coffee. Will go back for more substantive fare next time we are in Howden if we have more time.

Chips lovely, but had a slice of chicken and mushroom pie which tasted strongly of cinnamon, as if the pastry was supposed to be for a pudding. Couldn't identify any chunks of chicken in the slice. Most odd. I see a picture of a massive...meat pie from this month on another review, so maybe they'd run out of the usual pie . We've had very different experiences with portion sizes each time we've visited, for instance we had a lovely big roast dinner the first time and a child's portion next time, but the cost was the same.More

First time we've visited and a pleasant experience. Very good range of home-baking that catches your eye when you enter - all home made. We enjoyed a delicious and generous sized carrot cake and a date and walnut scone, along with coffees. We visited on...Sunday and noticed they offer a Sunday roast which includes Salmon which is great for non-meat eaters. We'll be visiting again - probably to try out their Sunday roast. Good Covid-19 precautions. Richard & ElizabethMore
