We visited this morning as our son was at a Birthday party at the pottery painting place next door. We live in Stamford Bridge (not the football ground, the Yorkshire village) and so didn't really have time to go home and come back. We were...More

Delicious food very well presented - meat, fish, veggie dishes, choice of salads and desserts for 80 people. Service was friendly and helpful - the team from Delicacy made a big contribution to what was a happy occasion. Excellent value!
