My favourite cafe!

I live near Hebden and I am a regular at The Old School Tearoom. The owners are veggie and they’re super friendly. They always have amazing vegan options here and it’s a great place to go before/after a walk in the dales. I love their vegan English breakfast. Also non vegans love it here too so a great place to go with friends/family.

Delicious pancakes!

The pancakes here were amazing! The cafe is super cute and the tables in the window seat have fantastic views. Can't wait to go back to try more.

Lovely cafe stop - very nice cakes

Selection of cakes, savoury bakes and hot drinks. Lovely cafe, not too busy and lots of options. Check their website first as sometimes the menu is reduced.

Pros: Several cake options, Lovely place, easy parking

Cons: Quite pricey for portion sizes - £3.60 cake slice, Reduced menu when we visited, cake+ falafel wrap

Try the Vegan Afternoon Tea

An absolutely brilliant Vegan "Afternoon Tea". All freshly made by the Chef. Set in delightful surroundings, really good service. Pre book it. Would not hesitate to go again.

Pros: Excellent Food, Generous helpings, Beautifully presented

Cons: Can't think of any cons

Great for vegan Dales walkers.

I sat in the window overlooking the valley and enjoyed a mushroom soup and generous fresh salad. A friendly, relaxed place with a separate vegan menu. Combine it with a walk along the beautiful Dales Way.

Excellent vegan Afternoon Tea

We came for the vegan afternoon tea and were all very impressed, would highly recommend this to anyone looking for the English afternoon tea experience while visiting the dales. You do need to book in advance for this (same goes with non vegan A.T). The price was very reasonable for what you get. We were 5 and just thought they would bring out only 3 tiers but we ended up all having our own tier of plates which was more than enough food each.

They also have a full vegan menu.

Pros: Very good afternoon tea at an affordable price

Cons: None

Countryside Gem

What a wonderful find in the Dales with such friendly staff. Such a welcome joy to find somewhere catering so well for vegetarians and vegans with such choice and quality of meals, snacks and cakes. We had a vegan burger, served with sweet potato fries and beautiful mixed salad. Great portion size but sadly too full for cake! Great coffees with choice of non-dairy milk. Clearly very popular with walkers and cyclists. The decor is attractive with lovely gifts for sale. If it’s busy inside or great weather there is also plenty of seating outside. Walks nearby. Very clean toilets.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Park next door, additional seating outside, Wonderfully clean, great decor and friendly

Cons: Popular at times

Definitely recommended

Beautiful tea room and cafe with super friendly owners who are vegan and vegetarian. They have a huge separate vegan menu and the food is amazing. Very tasty and good portions. I tried the parsnip and watercress soup, falafel and avocado sandwich, and a butternut squash and chilli scone. They also do a vegan afternoon tea and cater for those who are gluten and sugar-free.

Pros: Huge vegan menu, Friendly, Beautiful building and view

Excellent vegan options - highly recommend

Excellent small tea room / cafe with an extensive range of vegan options (approx 20 items on the vegan menu and also cakes). Also good options for non vegans. Very friendly staff. The food we had was delicious and all round one of the best experiences of eating out for vegan food. Would give 5 stars but the app only seems to allow 4 stars for “mixed” restaurants. Highly recommend and will go back for sure when in the area

Pros: Many vegan choices , Very friendly staff, Fair prices

Cons: None
