1897 Coffee Shop – Wensleydale Creamery – Hawes



The only place we found for quality loose leaf tea in Hawes. And pick the right spot for beautiful views over the Yorkshire Dales. Great spot for Wallace & Gromit ‘Fancy a Cuppa?’ re-enactments.

The review of this tea room in Hawes appears in our new book on coffee and tea in North Yorkshire. It’s out now and you can get hold of a copy here…

We chose this venue for tea in Hawes because as far as we could see it’s the only place in town serving loose-leaf tea. There is a very good English Breakfast, a delicious Earl Grey and a few fruit options in the range available from Brew Tea Co. Served in a cafetiere style of pot – need to let it brew (steep) a while before pouring if you like your tea strong! There’s a great selection of cakes and scones, all baked in-house. We chose the paradise slice, but were tempted by the Eccles cakes, which you don’t see home-made that often. Or have a classic fruit cake with Wensleydale cheese.

Getting there

Hawes is right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, on the A684. No trains here anymore, though there’s talk of rebuilding the Wensleydale Railway here so watch out for that. You can catch a bus to Hawes, though in summer it’s the stopping off point for countless coach parties, too! The Creamery is at the top end of town where the road to Gayle turns off the main road.
