Driven past this restaurant at the side of the A64 between York and Leeds many, many times and never been in. Nearly didn't bother - as you drive in past the motel and McDonalds I wondered if I was heading for "motorway service station food". Could not have been more wrong. The restaurant was being decorated and should look great when finished. The staff were very friendly and efficient. However the main point of the visit, the food was exceptional. A huge pot of tea. A generous portion of Haddock & Chips, peas, tartar sauce, bread and butter. The fish was as good as you will find anywhere. Total cost including tea £11 each. Left happy and very full. Will definitely be back.

Hi Stephen,
Hidden gem you say, well we hope we are becoming less of a Hidden gem.Please spread the word.
The location is excellent, but we do suffer from poor signage and the expectation of motorway services food!!!
The only way to overcome that is to serve great quality food, at value for money prices and smiley friendly staff. Gradually people will realise we are much more than a stop off, but a destination for lunch or dinner or afternoon tea, with all our home made desserts.
Open all day everyday.
Decorating should be finished by 6th march.
Come back soon.
Regards
Tony

Hello and thanks fo the great comments,
Both the steak pie and lasagne are home made in our kitchen, by Roxanna who takes great pride in her food.
She also makes most of the fantastic deserts you see on display, so afternoon tea is a great alternative if you're not feeling that hungry.
The decorating will be completed soon, 6th March and we hope you like the slightly different look about the place.
Hope to see you back soon.
Regards
Tony

My Wife and I took my elderly Mother here for lunch last Saturday, we were served by Jake & Maisie who were both very helpful, friendly & attentive, the Fish & Chips were simply delicious, we would highly recommend this Restaurant to anyone in the area or indeed passing by.

This is such a lovely restaurant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious not just fish and chips but a whole range of delicacies all delightfully cooked and served. Not cheap but definitely worth every penny.Would highly recommend.

we visited last Sunday and really enjoyed the food which was really quickly served by a lovely little waitress called Maisie. She was most helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble to her. Many thanks for a lovely evening made better by the fayre and the extremely pleasant Maisie
