. On the positive side, our sandwiches were very good; fresh and tasty. Like a previous reviewer, we sat outside and found the service slow. We would certainly visit the Bay Tree again and would recommend it, but maybe not if people are in a rush!

Hawes is a lovely little with village in Wensleydale with lots of cafes, pubs & restaurants.

The Bay Tree Cafe is fairly small, but offers some really nice home cooked food and at quite reasonable prices.

The selection of soups on offer is simply amazing.

When or where can you EVER choose between six or seven different soups?

It just doesn't happen!! And they ALL looked delicious.

There was also an amazing display of home made cakes. Again - very very tempting.

If you 're in Hawes, Give it a try.....

You almost certainly won't be disappointed.

What a find this was! A lovely small cafe with a choice of 7 home-made soups and a great selection of home-made cakes - as well as many other things on their good value for money menu. The cakes were all excellent and are baked locally by the mother of one the person who served us. We enjoyed the coffee cake and victoria sandwich cake and we also had the lemon scone with lemon curd and cream - all deliciou!!. The coffee that came with these was excellent too. Great to find such a lovely cafe in Hawes.

Been here several times and really enjoyed the home made food esp the pea and ham soup and side salads with fruit only, quibble is the standard of service which can be chaotic and slow, seems understaffed and poorly trained in customer service. Moved from outside to inside after order and they thought I had gone, not surprising as 2 people left without making orders due to lack of service while I was there.
Go for the food not the service

We popped in here after a walk and had one of their large choice of soups and they are very good in deed and good value. The cakes on the side board were calling to us swell and we had the tea bread and scones, both excellent the only thing that let the place down was the unwelcoming attitude of the waitress, although we did get a smile out ofbher before we left, nothing wrong with the service it's just better done with a smile
