The Old Barn Coffee Shop in Thirsk is a welcoming sight for visitors arriving at our York House and Abbots Green Holiday Parks in Balk, just outside the historic market town. We serve delicious homemade cakes, hearty Yorkshire breakfasts and wholesome lunches in a welcoming rustic setting. We pride ourselves on using the best locally sourced ingredients in our dishes and were delighted to be a finalist in the 2017 Taste of Herriot Awards.

Enjoy a pot of speciality tea, one of our Italian blend coffees or choose from a selection of refreshing cold drinks. On a hot summer’s day nothing beats sitting in our pretty patio gardens and enjoying an indulgent ice cream sundae.

The Old Barn Coffee Shop is open to everyone. As well as being a firm favourite with our holiday park guests we are also popular with walkers and cyclists. We have a large car park and plenty of tables indoors and outside. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Brilliant afternoon here, plenty to keep the children entertained. I especially enjoyed the delicious chocolate cake!!. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help us. I can’t wait to return 🙂

We called in on cycle club ride – excellent coffee and cake…(cakes are homemade), both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as safe parking for the bikes. Really friendly staff. The cafe is now on our club list of good cafes to return to.

Nice cappuccino and cheese toastie in the Games Room. Friendly service, and the Games Room is dog-friendly too (no dogs in main cafe).
