Yorkshire and The Humber

Cobbles and Clay, Haworth

8 July 2006

For Haworth, read Bronté sisters. Main Street is a central sloping cobbled path, with four or five cafés for tourists on a “Wuthering Heights” pilgrimage. Cobbles and Clay is the closest thing to a coffee house.

It also happened to be the least busy place on this bustling street, so the most likely contender for a leisurely mug.

In keeping with its name, the walls of Cobbles and Clay are spartan and pale and pottery sits on the window sill. The rest of the room has well-placed splashes of colour, some in the form of sprigs of local heather (what moors café would be complete without it?).

This place is an antidote to the quaint adjacent tea rooms. Perhaps they more typically “Yorkshire”, but Cobbles and Clay is the best bet for coffee seekers.

The coffee is FairTrade and excellent, the mugs are endearingly mis-matching, and the service is friendly. And there are cakes and even a wine list. It’s a nice spot to sit and watch the ambling visitors amble by.

There is a patio area at the rear (go down the stairs to find it), a good place for a warm summer day.

    I can thoroughly recommend this lovely coffee shop, which we tried when spending a couple of days in Haworth for the “Scroggling of the Holly” ceremony last weekend (Google it!). I had the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted there – it was just as I like it; hot, not too sweet and it had a nice head of choccy froth (instead of horrible cold lumpy whipped cream – yuk!). I drank it with a very yummy couple of pieces of spiced fruit loaf. It made me feel very Christmassy!!

    We chanced upon this cafe on a recent visit to Haworth and were very pleasantly surprised. Very, very nice – the coffee was one of the best I’ve had in ages. Friendly inside, and the food was excellent too. Very highly recommended to the point we will be making special trips over to Haworth to go!
