Hey guys! I’m back with another blog post and another cafe review, this time about the Granary at Rustic Riddle. It’s located near Fraisthorpe which I visited a couple of weeks ago now. I’ve been to this cafe twice and I have to say that it has impressed me both times. It’s very quirky and cute with delicious food and friendly staff; what more could you want? As many of you know, I’m a big lover of independent cafes such as this one and I don’t think you’d quite believe how exciting it was to be able to add ‘The Granary’ to my little list of awesome independent cafes in my local area! So in today’s post, I will be reviewing this cafe and describing it in full detail!
The Granary cafe is a brick building which is right next door to a farm with some animals. They have a couple of tables outside which I’m sure would be lovely to sit at in the summer months but seeing as it was quite cold when we visited, we headed indoors to find a table in there. The seating areas are split into two: the first one has medieval vibes with black wooden tables lined up along the edges of the room, a chandelier dangling from the roof, a long black table with long candles and roses laid on it in the centre and a crackling fire in a log burner. The second seating area was slightly different with lots of wooden tables with plush black seats at them. There was also some seating in the upstairs bit so they really weren’t short of room to welcome lots of different customers.
For my lunch, I ordered a fish finger sandwich on my first visit and a tuna melt panini on my second time. The child in me screamed with jubilance at the sight of the thick fish fingers crammed between two slices of bread with tartar sauce oozing out of it. It was very well received by my taste buds who’d been dying for an amazing lunch like this one. My tuna melt panini was just as good with tuna mayo sandwiched in between the bread and cheese melting out from the confines of the bread. The salad, coleslaw and crisps that accompanied both of these meals were very much appreciated too as they really added to it overall.
After that, it was time for me to choose a desert and I’m not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that it was a tricky choice. The Granary (who have their own baker) had so many enticing options and I spent ages gazing at the cakes and wondering how on earth I would decide between them all. In the end, I selected a peanut butter crumble slice the first time (because I’m a huge fan of anything with peanut butter in) and a slice of chocolate tiffin the second time. Both were so yummy and were so rich in flavour. I was literally in heaven with all this amazing food that I’d just eaten.
So overall, I would definitely recommend ‘The Granary’. It has an intriguing interior, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is to die for! I can’t wait to visit again soon.
Thank you for reading this post! I’d just like to say at the end of it that my thoughts are with the victims of and all those who’ve been affected by the coronavirus. Hopefully, we can all pull together and help each other in these difficult times. There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!
