We went to this café recently when visiting the Picasso Exhibition at the Cooper Gallery and were very impressed. The staff were very welcoming and although we only had tea and cakes there were many more tempting delights on offer. Everything was very well run and although they were busy the tables were being cleaned immediately. We can recommend the... More

We have not been here for a while but we will return as our breakfast was excellent. Great price too to include tea and toast. It was very well presented and fast service. Friendly staff really makes you want to return. A nice selection of home baked cakes were on display really wanted to come back for tea later. They... More

We were lucky enough to stop here for lunch while visiting the excellent Picasso exhibition. Absolutely lovely home made food. My husband had pie and peas, delicious and incredibly well priced. I had a deliciously thick and tasty vegetable soup. Also very very yummy. If you are in Barnsley, well worth a stop.

Visited at 1pm and it was very busy (the first day of the new Picasso exhibition) but managed to squeeze in without a wait. There was a good choice of hot and cold meals and snacks to choose from and I was even... More

Worst food in the world. Whatever they put on my plate was an impression of an English breakfast. It probably would have tasted better if someone had actually drawn a sausage and I'd had eaten that. Horrific prices too. And I swear I heard one of the waitresses say something anti Semitic
