COVID 19 Please be aware:

Please do not enter if you are feeling unwell.

Please use the QR Code or fill in your Track & Trace details on arrival and read our House Rules to keep everyone safe.

Due to current Government Covid Regulations we have to keep the doors and windows open in the Cafe, so please wrap up warm on cool days.

We are only allowed to seat a maximum of 6 people or two families inside.

Due to the current situation we have reduced the number of tables inside, so we are limiting these to Diners only between 12.00 and 2.00pm.

Tables are booked in 1.5 hour slots (i.e. 12.00-1.30pm/1.30-3.00pm) unless otherwise requested.

Thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times! We are so happy to be able to welcome you back.


If you have a Gift Voucher which expired during the 2nd/3rd lockdown please do not worry, all vouchers have been extended to the end July 2021

Due to current circumstances, I am afraid we shall not be doing the Vintage Afternoon Tea for the near future. If you have a Gift Voucher you are welcome to use it as a Monetary Voucher (£15.00) in either the Farm Shop or enjoy some lunch in the Cedarbarn Cafe.
Thank you for your understanding.

Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café

Welcome to Cedarbarn, where we're passionate about growing, cooking and eating fabulous food!

Our award-winning farm shop and café is food heaven… but our produce doesn't just taste great; we're proud to say it's locally sourced as far as possible, with much of it grown on our own farm. Nearly everything we sell or serve has been produced right here in beautiful North Yorkshire, whether it's our own fresh meat, Scarborough fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables or delicious deli products.

Cedarbarn is run by husband and wife team Karl and Mandy Avison, along with General Manager Alison Riley, who has grown up in the business, her father was a well known greengrocer on Leeds Market for many years. Karl’s family has farmed in the Thornton Dale area for over a century, and Mandy has years of experience in hotels and catering, so they make the perfect team! The business is a real family affair, with Karl and Mandy’s daughter Chloe managing the shop and their niece and nephew working in the business, even Karl’s mum lends a hand in the kitchen.

Our aim at Cedarbarn is very simple; to bring you top-quality, healthy, fresh food with impeccable provenance and as few food miles as possible. We're inspired by our love of farming and also care deeply about our impact on the environment - so all our operations are as eco-friendly as possible.
