welcome


The Bank View Cafe AKA "The Spotty Cafe"    AKA "Langsett Caff” where cyclists, walkers and those passing by can always expect a warm welcome.

We've had this place since 2007 and have created a cosy place where muddy boots are welcome and you will find good home cooked food sourced from local producers.  We turned polka dot in 2014 to celebrate the Tour de France coming past our front door.

The cafe is in the heart of some fantastic countryside.  With great walking, mountain biking and road cycling on our doorstep, we’re child and dog friendly, and don’t mind a bit of mud on our floor if you call in after your walk or bike ride.

In fine weather, we have a garden for you to enjoy and when it turns cold, we light the fire inside the cafe so you can come and warm up with a hot drink.  

With free off-road parking, we’re happy for you to call in during your working day for breakfast, lunch, business meetings, or to make use of our free WI-FI.

We also have:

•    Daily newspapers and a library of books to browse
•    Toys and colouring pens/paper to keep the kids entertained
•    Local information, guide books & maps for sale
•    Photo’s and artwork for sale by local artists
•    Spare inner tubes, bike parts and a free to use tool kit

what's happening


(the Tour de Yorkshire of course)

Tour de Yorkshire Sunday 30th April

Stage 3: Bradford to Stocksbridge (195km) 

This Spring the big news is that the Tour de Yorkshire is coming to town! By which I mean the race will finish in Stocksbridge, just down the road. The competition will be fierce as the riders tackle 4 category climbs in the last 25km of the entire race! My moneys on 'Cote de Ewden Bank' as the place to be. It's the Strines' iconic climb, Its got a 1:8 gradient and it's 1.2km long. With only 10km to go, the riders will be sapped of strength and fighting for the finish.

The atmosphere will be rocking.

The Plan. Get yourselves to Langsett, get the car parked up, get the bikes out, rock on down to the cafe for a bite to eat, a beer or a coffee, then enjoy the day. There's a cracking walk round the reservoir, We'll have stuff to keep the kids happy, the big screen will be up so you can keep abreast of the race as it develops. Then mid afternoon head over to Ewden Bank, which is just 2 miles out on the quiet, flat start of the Strines road. 

(It's where I'd be)

our food


our food


OK, so we are a proper Yorkshire Caff, we don't serve the sort of rubbish you get from chains. We don't dress up what we do in fancy language. What you get from us is well cooked, locally sourced good quality dishes, everything from the Dambuster breakfast, to the widely acclaimed home cooked steak pie and chips. We serve strong rich espresso coffee and good strong brews of tea. Wherever possible we try to source locally and ethically. 

But don't take my word for it. these are pulled straight off tripadvisor.

“Heaven on a plate!”Just eaten possibly the best cream tea ever. Heavenly scones, delicious jam, fluffy cream and excellent tea. Good service and very reasonable price
“Best breakfast around” As usual, the food is great, they still do the best breakfast in the area, great bacon, mushrooms, well done black pudding , fantastic eggs and toast just right with great big mug of coffee or tea.
I took a piece of rocky road and oh my word it was to die for! best rocky road I've EVER tasted. Wow :)
This place has something you can't buy, soul. Always a great atmosphere, friendly faces and that connection to the great outdoors and the local cycling community. I've had great pies, belting fry ups and the best cream teas in the peaks, happy days
