We were travelling up to Cumbria, and had the A66 not been snowed out we would never have found this lovely spot. We were there on a Sunday lunchtime and though busy, service was excellent and cheerful. Great value soup and sandwich with excellent coffees.

Called in today whilst visiting Settle. With only two waitresses service was rather slow as the place was very busy. The sandwiches were good and the chips were to die for. All in all definitely worth a visit.

We had booked a nearby cottage for a four-night break, and noticed The Courtyard every time we drove past, since it sits directly off the A65 just south of Settle. Though most of our time was committed to seeing family members and meals at some...More

I suspect not - they weren't very flexible when we visited - we couldn't even sit where we wanted! There's a new place [Café + Cheese shop] at the other end of the by-pass where the falconry centre used to be, which... More
