Very disappointing that it is still shut. No indication of when or if it might re-open. Let's hope this outlet for local products gets taken up by some enterprising person or persons.

Good little shop to pick up a souvenir, the men in our group also had a few visits to buy local ales. Situated on the village green area so easy to pop to. Worth a look inside.

We found the little shop at the bottom of the green. All products made in Yorkshire and prices reasonable and products vary from a few pounds to a few over £50. Always good to support the local traders.
