Had a delicious afternoon tea today at Strickland and Holt. The table was set ready for us and ample tea served in lovely china was available on arrival. The staff were very pleasant, attentive without being fussy. The afternoon tea was delicious and served very nicely. At under £10 a head, we will certainly return. Thank you.

The shop and café have been revamped over the years. The café is no longer upstairs. The café is not as good as it was in the past. However, I have had lunch/cakes here a few times and enjoyed it. The shop stocks a variety of gifts and the pocket money section is excellent.

This place is relaxed. You order your food and pay for it at the counter. Huge blackboards are informative. Staff friendly and obliging. Food - really good and tasty! It seems that care is taken in this wood floored eclectically furnished coffee/lunch/cakes to die for emporium. I had a beautifully presented contemporary shaped bowl of home made spicy parsnip soup... More

Been here a few times and always enjoyed the food. They serve good tea and coffees and large slices of cake which are delicious. I've also eaten their sandwiches which were equally good. Not cheap but good value, plus the added bonus of being able to stroll through the attached shop which is number one for old fashioned "pocket money... More

The cafe at Strickland and Holt is packed every time we have visited Yarm. The shop itself is a treasure trove of finds for gifts and at xmas is really evocative in the shop. On this trip we visited both for coffee and cake on one day and for a family lunch on another. The cakes seem to be home... More

The light, airy café within our family-run department store captures on a plate the same elements of quality, personal service and good taste as the rest of the shop.We serve the very best teas and coffees to go with delicious scones and cakes that are all baked in-house here in Yarm. Even our bread is made on the premises in our new in-store artisan bakery.Or perhaps you’re looking for something more substantial? Soups, sandwiches and light meals are served all day.The café is a great spot to meet up with friends or family, take the children for a treat, or just grab a chance for a quiet catch up with the papers.Customers from years gone by may recall the coffee shop on our first floor. Rest assured, you’ll find here the same emphasis on fresh-made food created from top quality ingredients.Old favourites that people travel far and wide to find include our gorgeous granary Yarm Bread and the unique and best-selling Yarm Salad Dressing (the recipe is top secret).Add to these some fantastic new creations, and there really is no excuse not to drop by soon and taste our wares!You’ll also find an interesting range of food & drink and culinary gifts to take away.When the weather is warm, you might choose to enjoy a drink al fresco on our pleasant terrace.Strickland & Holt.
