Description: Under new management, we have changed the focus of Overton House. As well as serving homemade soups, light lunches, snacks and an array of sweet treats, we also sell many of these items to take out. Soup, sandwiches, savouries, scones and cakes are some examples. The small shop section of the cafe sells unusual deli items, Emma Bridgewater pottery and delicious treats from the likes of Mad Hatter Tea, Corks and Cases Masham, Taylor's of Harrogate and Nakd. As we're a family-owned, family-run business, we close on Mondays and Thursdays.

“Small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Visited this Cafe over the bank holiday. True cafe now under the very pleasant owners. Very busy when we arrived with customers spilling over to seats outside. Enjoyed our coffees and homemade scones, etc, so much so we went back again after our walk.

“New owners, new approach, still great”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We went for an evening meal last summer and had a great experience, but we heard then that it was on the market and likely to change hands over the winter. So, when we visited today we weren't quite sure what to expect.
It's different, more of a true café than a restaurant and with a simpler menu, but it's still a great find. They offer a wide range of really nice cakes, terrific sandwiches, a good mixture of light lunches plus some quite unusual 'deli' items, all served in a fresh, stylish and very friendly way. Run by a really nice couple who know the area well and are trying new ideas to see what works best, it's a truly uplifting experience and certainly the nicest daytime eating place we've found in Reeth (they don't currently open in the evenings). Do try it.

“One Last Time...”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

One of my favorite rop ten restaurants anywhere in the world. Jill and Adrian run a fabulous place, akin for food to the 'Three Chimneys' on Skye.

Visitors to Reeth you will fall into two categories - day trippers who rarely leave the green, have an ice cream and a sandwich and leave. The other stay, appreciate the village, use it as a base to walk from and support the local businesses like Overton.

If you are a foodie and appreciate superb quality ingredients you will rave about this place.If you want a toastie and a cup of tea you will have a great one, but you've missed the point...

Restaurant like this are as rare as the Yorkshire Yeti - support them...

Rumour has it that this might be about to change hands - if it does, I do hope the new owners are going to try and maintain standards and I will be finding out where the duo go next...

“great party”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Went to a birthday party here and food was excellent. It was a set meal but the food was well cooked and well presented. Some unusual and creative parts to the meal. Will go again if we go to Reeth
