Great service, comfortable tables & sofas. Good food & fully stocked bar. So much more than a Cafe as it caters for all the family & serves breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea.

We joined an organised group-visit to Tennnants Auction House at Leyburn. The place is really quite magnificent - completely changed from the former barn-like buildings of a typical auction room. The investment in new buildings has cost them millions. Our pre-booked visit included a talk...More
