Each time I walk past the New St shop the manager and her blonde side kick are usually fagging it and screeching loudly with laughter outside the shop. I was sat waiting for toast I'd ordered, the ladies inside we're run ragged as customers were waiting, then when the manager had finished her drink and food and cigarettes, she just left her plates and cups and sauntered back inside. My toast got burnt, it's the second time now. Walking past all the smoke is enough in itself but I won't be going back to buy anything.

Been many times to Merrie England shops and can always be sure of good coffee and sandwiches. Can get rather busy at peak lunch times etc., so would aim for morning coffee to get a
seat.

Called at the Merrie England on the main road going into Huddersfield. They make the best coffee going and their home made apple pie is delicious.

Anybody who has been born and bred in 'Uddersfield has got to have a special place in their heart for the Merrie England! Great little mock medieval cafés with cheery staff always up for a bit of friendly banter! Best hot beef sandwiches ever and the lemon meringue is delicious with a large coffee.... Spot on every time! Oh and the egg mayo sandwiches, toasted current teacakes and egg custards are jolly good too....!

There are 6 of these vaguely Henry VIII-themed oddities scattered around town. They are/were Huddersfield’s contribution to the 1960s coffee-bar/café ‘scene’. They serve the kind of desserts you won’t have experienced since your childhood and are locally famous for their hot roast beef sandwiches.
