Yorkshire Afternoon Tea
Come and join us for a Yorkshire Afternoon Tea at the Pot Still Coffee Shop and enjoy a selection of finely cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones and cakes served with a hot drink of your choice with the unique backdrop of Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky distillery.
Provenance is really important to our Afternoon Tea – we want it to be a true ‘Yorkshire’ experience and so we use our favourite local producers wherever possible. Eggs come from a farm in Burton Fleming, our neighbouring village; our milk is from St. Quintin’s Creamery in nearby Harpham; and ham comes from Trotters Farm Shop in Sherburn. We look a little further afield for a coffee, using Dark Woods in Huddersfield because we really like their philosophy, and of course, we use Yorkshire Tea because we love it ourselves. Last but never least, our cheese comes from the home of cheese: Wensleydale, in the Yorkshire Dales.
From £15 per person, our Afternoon Teas are available 7 days a week: between 1pm and 3pm Monday – Saturday, and between 12pm and 2pm on Sundays. Because they’re made by the team here at the distillery, they must be booked 24 hours in advance.
A little more special
Make it extra special with a pint of Wold Top Beer or a glass of prosecco.
Our Afternoon Teas can be vegan, vegetarian or gluten free. Please contact our team prior to your reservation if you have any dietary requirements either by: calling 01723891758 in opening hours, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or add as a note alongside your booking.
So we set off on a “mystery trip”, now I’m not one for mystery trips so we set off and I was in a grumpy mood and was in pain. We turned on to the road to Hunmanby and I was definitely none the wiser. Just before we got there my darling wife asked me to close my eyes.
We arrived on a small but tidy industrial estate and entered the distillery. I was still quite grumpy but my interest was starting to peak as I had never been on a distillery tour before. It was beautifully clean and well presented with a wonderful array of whisky’s for sale. We were signposted upstairs to the start of the tour.
The tour was eye opening and informative, the smells were heavenly, and then the pièce de résistance the tasting of the whisky’s. I had entered single malt heaven. We were given three to sample and were allowed to sample any others from the range on the “try before you buy” basis. So we did and then we did (buy that is).
We then sauntered upstairs again to sample the delights of the café and we weren’t disappointed. We went for the sharing platter which was amply stocked with local cheeses and charcuterie. Oh and the pork pie on the side was to die for, also sourced from a local provider.
We will be going back again for more lovely food and to purchase more of their mighty fine whisky. I’ve also recommended this place to all my friends who the cycling fraternity as a blooming good cafe stop.
Please do to go as you won’t be disappointed.
Everyone over the age of 6 is welcome to join a tour. We cannot allow anyone under the age of 6 into the still house. Therefore they cannot join the tour. This includes babes-in-arms.
The stills are in action on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. However very occasionally, for technical reasons, there will be times when we are not distilling on those days.
We love our furry four legged friends however as we are a working distillery, we can only allow Assistance Dogs into the distillery building. This includes the distillery shop and the Pot Still Coffee Shop.
Our Daily Distillery Tours last 60 minutes (at 11, 1 and 3 everyday). The Distillery Deep Dive is 90 minutes. And our Brewery and Distillery Tours take around 3 hours.
