  • Fantastic food, delivered quickly and lovely serving staff. The food was fresh, hot and the coffee was excellent. It was a welcome oasis from the drive out to the coast.  more »

  • Lovely farm shop and cafe. Enjoyed the food we ordered, but they REFUSED to serve what we really wanted off the menu - a lighter breakfast. Sorry, this is not acceptable. After all, we are paying customers and our money pays their wages. They should treat us as valued customers and meet our requests.
  • Been here many times but today I noticed pick your own Strawberries were advertised. Fill 2 punnets and was charged £14.26!!! Come on £6.25 per kilo is 50% more than the shops. Be careful you don't fall into the trap! Won't bother going again.
  • The Balloon Tree Farmshop is chock full of beautiful, delicious products - from jams, biscuits and cakes to cheeses, meats and chutneys. All locally sourced and all wonderful. The cafe attached to the Farmshop is also fantastic with a great range of delicious, hearty meals (today's special of sausage, bacon and cheese quiche was a winner) and a fab selection of cakes and treats. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is that there is often a wait for the cafe at the weekends and I've felt a bit ignored when this has happened (no-one coming to let me know that we'll be served soon or what the waiting time is). But if you're more patient than I am, or coming at a less busy time, you'll have a fantastic experience I'm sure!
  • Very pleasent experience lovely seating area both inside and out. Food and served well. Good produce and gifts to buy.
  • Called in for lunch had roast beef, one guest had gluten free lunch no problems. Good choice of desserts​. Good food good service and good value.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
