We cannot fault this - excellent coffee and homemade cakes served by lovely friendly people in a beautiful building. And very good value with profits going to charity. The old church building has beautiful tombs to look at. A real find.

Freshly made food by voluntary workers at a pittance, on a viewing platform entered from the Shambles, with a jumble sale outside with seating. It's so vintage and on most days, unlike Harrogates Methodist hall which is Saturday. Love it
