I went there today with the CTC and there’s a notice up to say that the cafe will close at the end of October. it seems the current tenants no longer wish to carry on.
Managed to visit this place today, another regular of Phil‘s Wednesday group. It’s a great setting, right in the centre of the village and easily approached by country lanes, without having to go on any main roads. We came down through Ragdale and Hoby. There’s plenty of room, with seating for probably 30 people in total. Bikes can be parked in the outside area at the back of the building. It’s not the cheapest place, but they have good quality ingredients including Hambleton Bakery bread, and it’s no more expensive than lots of other places. I’m not sure how they would cope with a big group, as they were a little slow serving us with our food, and it wasn’t busy, but overall a thumbs up from us.
