“Delicious but a little noisy”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Partner took me here as a surprise on valentines day. The food is to die for, amazing selection of waffles, pancakes, hot dogs, burgers, coffee and of course, ice cream. The menu seemed a little confusing as there's two of them with different things on, so i ended up ordering a desert for main without really realising they did other warm food, Not a bother at all though as i LOVE pudding. It was very busy here with young children as it was half term, not a problem for me but if you're looking for a quiet time then perhaps visit on another day (Although i am unsure of the openings during term time). The only gripe i had with this diner was the seating. There's not an awful lot of it. I do not mind, at all, waiting for tables, but it was very annoying watching people with children finish their meals then continue to sit there, biding their time just because it was cold outside. Had i have to wait another 5minutes, i would have probably left. I think they would benefit from having less booths, more tables and perhaps someone just keeping an eye on seating. I would imagine this place to be pefect if you have a family, as there's an amazing playarea directly outside.

“Excellent hideaway ice cream parlour/diner”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

We went to this place in Jan 2012 after a recommendation from a local friend. In a word, it's terrific. It's an ice-cream parlour/diner/outdoor playground with great views of the dales.

The quality of the food, ice cream and even coffee was super. Our kids had a great time in the wooden built, enclosed and clean playground outside after we all enjoyed some great food inside. All kept clean and tidy.

We'll definitely be going back - in a way I didn't want to write this review because it's great keeping this a secret place to the few who have been - certainly wouldn't want it to change if it got too popular!
