“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

My daughter & I had just taken a banner over to Buckden ready for the Tour De France. It was a lovely afternoon so we decided to drop into Grassington to eat... Unsure where to go we popped into this cafe....we asked if they were still serving to be told the kitchen was closed to hot meals so we turned intending to look elsewhere! The lady quickly explained she could switch things back on... I was astounded! So I ordered the vegetarian burger with chips & salad & my daughter ordered the veggie breakfast... Washed down with apple juice! The food was lovely!
Other people went in after us to be told only drinks & cakes were on offer... Otherwise the lady & chef would never have got home! I did think maybe they were missing out on custom but possibly opening times are related to selling 'licence'! It was certainly very popular! We'll be back!

“Nice food but customer relations......”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Called in late afternoon & had a cream tea & enjoyed & another couple that came in after us were told that they were not doing hot food but could order anything else.....fair enough.....
Then an elderly couple came in & sat at next table & started looking at menu & the waitress went to them & said sorry we've just closed & off they trundled ....


Sorry but they might have only wanted a drink etc. We were disgusted & left soon after.

Need we say more......

Dear LucyL,

Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts, I always listen to customer feedback both good and bad.

I'm very pleased you enjoyed your scones and that you think our food is good.

With regards to the rest of your review alI can say is sorry -we have opening and closing times just like everybody else and we operate within them. I'm not really sure why my closing time of 5pm offends you so much and has caused you to give us such a scathing score of 'terrible' especially considering your positive feedback regarding our food. Our opening and closing times (09.30-17.00, kitchen closes at 16.45) are clearly displayed on our door for all customers to see.
I feel you have scored us very unfairly for something (ie closing) that all businesses do on a daily basis, we do have to go home sometime!

Please feel free to contact me directly and discuss this further, should you wish to do so, on 01756 752303.

“Good Food in a Spot with Character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Good food in this popular cafe off the main square in this busy little town. The staff are always helpful and cheery. There's plenty of choice from a varied menu. This place gets very busy at main meal times, so go early or late for a choice of seats.

“Delightful Scones”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We have visited Cobblestones quite a few times and have always found the atmosphere to be lovely and welcoming. The scones are particularly good - warm from the oven and served with jam and cream. They were perfect with a pot of Yorkshire tea, We have also tried the breakfast teacake filled with delicious bacon, egg and sausage. Cobblestones is a perfect stopping off point either before or after a walk. Dogs are also welcome and it is also very good value for money.
