Living in Sheffield, the excellent NT Longshaw cafe is much closer and therefore our regular haunt, so this is a comparison review. We decided to try the Penny Pot Cafe for a snack lunch of bacon butties, tea and scones. Being National Trust, the prices were much the same, but not as good value. Although the bacon was nice tasting, they did skimp a bit on the quantity. The scones were very good, but the tea would be better served in proper pots rather than little stainless steel ones. We were given only a small pot for two of us, and had to ask for a refill of water. Also, we prefer cups and saucers, whereas only mugs seemed to be available. So the drinks side did rather let them down. The atmosphere was nice, with comfortable settees to sit on if desired. We couldn't fault the staff, they were very friendly and gave service. Overall 8/10.
