Gluten-free cakes are handmade and there’s a range of organic coffee and fresh juices. Cyclists can take advantage of a special meal deal with coffee and a cake or a bacon bagel for £5.
Family- and dog-friendly, it has a large south-facing beer garden set back from the main road that offers good views of Skipton High Street when cycling and other events are in town. The pub has ample space for bikes.
Coffee and Clay prides itself on being one of the longest established family owned independent coffee shops in Skipton. Serving high-quality, barista style coffees prepared by local friendly staff. You can fuel up with freshly prepared and home cooked hot food including breakfast sandwiches (served all day); toasted sandwiches; panini’s, soups and jacket potatoes. Or try some of amazing home cooked daily specials. Then finish off with our scrumptious selection of quirky homemade cakes or tray-bakes.
As well as being a café, Coffee and Clay is the area’s largest “Painted by You” pottery studio, and party venue. We’ve already had cycling-groups and or their family’s call back in to paint a pot or enjoy a private celebration.
SPECIAL OFFER: Cyclists get free water bottle refills and cycles can be left just outside the cafe, within easy view.
The restaurant provides an early bird service with discounted prices, and there is space for cycle parking by the side of the restaurant.
The bar serves a range of cask ales, draught beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. With consistent 5 star reviews, the Railway is very proud of their restaurant and the food they serve. And so they should be!
From traditional pub grub to some modern specials, you’re sure to find something you like on their menu. They serve a proper Sunday Roast every Sunday!
