Went twice, first time ordered and they had employed a new system for the kitchen and it didn't push order through so ended up with a free coffee. Tried again several weeks later and frankly it wasn't the best or worst but a bit pricey, Still got 2 lovely hand knitted cardigans for our mums. so not all bad

My friends booked for us all to have afternoon tea at the lovely Woolknit Cafe we just wanted somewhere that did great food and had a relaxed atmosphere so we could have a wonderful catch up as I was soon celebrating my 50th birthday and we all work for different hospitals so it can be very difficult to get together...

Yesterday, I visited WoolyKnit Cafe for the first time to celebrate the 75th birthday of a good friend of mine. It was a delightful experience, pleasant ambience, friendly and efficient staff and a delicious lunch; roast beef cooked to perfection served up with an abundance and variety of vegetables. Well worth a visit.

Set in an unusual location in Diggle, this place is very popular, we called early lunchtime on a Friday and managed to get a table. Most were reserved and it is obvious why. Lovely food and friendly staff.

WollyKnit café is such a great place to relax and enjoy a meal or coffee. The staff are very attentive, wanting to ensure that the customer experience is really positive. The food is lovely with a good range of choice. There are two fires which on a cold day will make the environment even more warm and cheery. Well done... More

We have just enjoyed a lovely Americano coffee and I indulged in a most delicious piece of moist vegan /dairy free chocolate cake. They also have soya milk so great if you have food intolerances. The staff are friendly too.

To find a Craft Shop & Cafe hidden away in the Saddleworth village of Diggle offers a euphoria only matched on discovering a pearl in an oyster. It certainly is a rare find and one thereafter that is highly treasured. Woolyknit' offers a range of interesting food loving prepared, excellent in value in a setting that has the warmth and...

First visit and was I impressed by the quality of the food and the friendly staff. My wife had soup and a sandwich which was very tasty, I had the steak and potato pie which was very good. My only negative point is the price of the steak and potato pie which was over £8 and the pie was the... More

A great place! Cosy and friendly with attentive & friendly staff. The big breakfast is fantastic and for me the best in Saddleworth. If I want a full english breakfast this is the place I always make a bee line for. They also have a fabulous selection of homemade cakes. The Victoria sponge- wow! Well worth a visit because you'll... More

We arrived to select some wool on the recommendation of a relative but the shop was closing early at the Xmas break and we missed the hot food menu, so we had coffee and cake when the shop closed. Friendly laid back staff, lovely woodburning stove next to comfy seats, ideal on the cold winter's day. For those who are... More

Oolyknit shop and cafe offer the ideal place to call in for a relaxing drink, some quality home-made food and a browse around the shop, which sells wool in all its forms as well as ready-made woollens to wear.

The light and spacious cafe, complete with a cosy corner with a stove and sofas, as well as outdoor seating, offers an extensive menu, including vegetarian and gluten & dairy free options. Our breakfast menu (served until 11.30Am), lunch menu and home-made cakes offer something for everyone. There are children's meals available and an ever-changing range of hot and cold specials. We proudly make good use of such local specialities as Lancashire oven-bottom muffins and Lancashire cheese, and we use local suppliers wherever possible.

We also cater for children's craft parties and other events - please contact us if you would like to discuss booking Woolyknit Cafe
