Harden's survey result
This “bright and welcoming” branch of the legendary Yorkshire tearoom empire, which has just celebrated its centenary, has a real sense of style. Breakfast is almost as popular as afternoon tea, and “to have their full English with Swiss rosti (a nod to Swiss founder Frederick Belmont) is a very special treat”.
For “a traditional afternoon tea in a venue with style” (plus “great breakfasts” and “superb” rostis) this much-loved, often oversubscribed institution is “a must if you are in Ilkley”…“long may it stay”. “Compared to Harrogate or York, the parking is much better and queues less long”.
A “great place for a treat”; this branch of the much-celebrated tearooms continues to “set the standard for afternoon tea in Yorkshire”, and offers “consistently good food” at other times, too.
This “very elegant” outpost of the much-loved tearooms offers an experience that’s simply “first class”, be it for “fabulous cakes and pastries” or a spot of lunch; “it was exceptionally busy, but staff didn’t falter and we never felt rushed to leave”.
