Stunning views down the Nidd from just off the Viaduct. Friendly staff and good food, although a little pricey. I suppose you're paying for the view!

Lovely spot for a day out. The food and drinks were ok, but what you're really paying for here is the view of the bridge.

My friend and I had breakfast here when she was visiting from Carlisle before Christmas. A lovely calming experience when you have your cappuccino in front of you and you can look out over the river and watch the ducks.

Excellent, clean and well presented cafe, with well organised staff. Good food at a reasonable price. Fairly limited menu, but this is a good thing in my books, as what's on offer is well done. Right by the side of the River Nidd with excellent views of river activities, and the superb rail viaduct. Busy in early January so suspect... More

If there is a nicer place to sit and have a bite to eat in Knaresborough I'm yet to find it. Justine and her delightful attentive team are providing excellent food in a warm environment. Many thanks

Stopped in for a late breakfast, lovely view out over the river and 3x bacon butties, tea, coffee and a hot chocolate £18 all in. A bit steep to say the bacon butties were made with sliced loaf bread (£4 each) for that money you really should be serving fresh rolls. Other than that it was ok.

Thank oisyhp
