Cafe Reviews

High Parks Tearoom,Newton-le-Willows, North Yorkshire

Fasted riding is good for you they said.  No it’s not, it’s horrific when doing 20 miles with 1,200 feet elevation so I was delighted 16 miles in to stumble across this little gem of a cafe hidden away in Newton-le-Willows.

Cafe Front

From the front it’s hard to spot how to get in but once you do you won’t be disappointed with the food and drink.


I ordered a bacon sandwich and a flat white.  It came in at £7.75 which is quite steep but the food is of great quality.  The bacon was well cooked and lean, the bread roll fresh with a nice crust and a little bit of side salad.  Now salad with a bacon sandwich isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I rammed it all in there and it was beautiful.

The coffee tasted great and was just what I needed to get me going the last few miles back home.  One thing that was a shame was that it was a little misty as I’m sure the view from the seats outside would be spectacular on a clear day.


A great little cafe and I will be back for another one of those bacon sandwiches!

Trip Advisor


Yorks of Thirsk – Thirsk, North Yorkshire

Visited this lovely little cycle cafe in Thirsk on Sunday. Only had time to nip in for an espresso but the service was quick, prices reasonable and the coffee delicious.

The walls are adorned with various cycling memrobelia and they offer locks for your bikes if you wish to sit indoors.

Great cafe and we’ll be back!
