We visited York with our 8 year old son over the Easter weekend. Looking for a place for cream tea & rest our feet we came across Molly's. Located above an antique shop & not far down the lane from Betty's tea room. As it was the holiday weekend everywhere was really busy so this was a welcome breather from... More

Hidden little gem .... service was good and the food was lovely. Don't be confused between Afternoon Tea for 2 and the Afternoon Tea Special they are very different.

For real Yorkshire hospitality you can't beat Molly's. Simple fare - toasted sandwiches/paninis, soup, jacket potatoes etc. served with side salads, crisps etc. - freshly prepared. Delicious homemade cakes and selection of drinks - all very reasonably priced. You get really well looked after and enjoy tasty food in a friendly environment and if, like me, you enjoy some 60's...

I was accosted in Stonegate, York by a nice lady offering a 10% discount for Molly's Tearooms. I'd never heard of it, but it's above a fascinating Antiques Shop. It's what I would call 'old-fashioned grub' - now that for me, is an accolade. The food was simple and of high quality, the cake fresh and tasty, the coffee was... More

Wandering through the Shambles me and my sister were looking for a cosy place for a bite to eat and we found one! Mollys Tearooms is hidden away on the 1st floor of the Antiques shop and is a quaint place to stop... More

My sister and I stumbled upon this unassuming tearoom by chance whilst wandering along Stonegate and happening to see the menu boards outside of the Antiques Centre. The tearoom has a cosy feel with very friendly and welcoming staff. Service was really speedy, with our hot drinks and cake being served within 10 minutes or so of being seated. The... More

Firstly the staff.....very rude. The food is appalLing and the atmosphere not good. Whilst we were there 2 people walked out. We should have done the same. It is clear that the place is simply run by amateurs more interested in making money from tourists than serving customers. AVOID.
