The Corner Cupboard is as British a restaurant as can be. Their staff should wear cricket whites, hum Elgar and be too reserved to take your order. They’re as British as tea, cake and blokes in red coats sweating in someone else’s country. From their cutesy cafe in Birdforth Hall outside Easingwold, north of York and in the broader district of Hambleton, they offer a wide range of main meals to accompany the cafe classics, so book a table now and head down for a traditional Yorkshire tea.
Visited for birthday treat lovely food lovely atmosphere would highly recommend and would visit again
We took friends for afternoon tea, and it was their first visit to the Corner cupboard. We all enjoyed our afternoon, excellent food, friendly and efficient staff and interesting surroundings.
Great find. We had the sharing platter which was lovely. Highly recommended. There is also a liitle gift chop where you can browse around and the staff were very warm and accommodating.
North Yorkshire is a place of natural beauty and cultural heritage. On the edge of the village of Easingwold, just up the road from York en route to the Hambleton market towns of Thirsk and Northallerton, there is a cafe that stands in the proudest of Yorkshire traditions, taking in the best of local produce to create dishes to warm any British heart. The Corner Cupboard – situated in the Birdforth Hall cottages – is the perfect place to stop off for a bite, so if you are passing through scenic moors and fancy a cup of tea, or just need a sit down and scone, head over to slake your thirst.
The menu at The Corner Cupboard on the outskirts of Easingwold is celebrated for their dedicated to local ingredients and British cuisine. Their fish travels to Birdforth Hall from just up the road in Whitby – we assume on the bus – and their cakes and soups are all homemade. Modern Britain is about more than just tea and cake too, and their menu includes the likes of Indian rogan josh and Italian lasagne too. Visitors to York, Hambleton, the North York Moors and the Howardian Hills can add to their experience of Yorkshire with a visit to this superb traditional cafe, but do remember to book in advance to make sure you get a seat.
