DECENT CUPPA: Simon Duffin's guide to a good cup of tea and coffee in North Yorkshire

First published in

A TOURIST guide that takes the reader to the best places in North Yorkshire to find a good cup of tea is published next month.

Fancy a Cuppa, North Yorkshire author Simon Duffin has drank countless cups of tea and coffee in an effort to find the best places to visit for a refreshing hot drink and slice of cake in 50 towns and villages across the county.

“With the Tour de France coming to North Yorkshire in 2014, and long-distance trails like the Cleveland Way and the Pennine Way cutting through the county, this guidebook provides ideas galore of where to stop for a cuppa - it’s the perfect accompaniment for any visit to North Yorkshire," he said.

“The guidebook also gives the reader a brief introduction to each of the towns and villages visited, picking out quirky facts about the place and digging up a tea or coffee connection if one can be found. The best places combine a quality beverage with a good story or a stunning setting.

“There’s a York coffee shop in a mediaeval toll tower, looking down over the Ouse; the tea room in Helmsley, where they now blend their own tea; and a cafe in Malton, where a former UK barista champion now wows the locals with quality cappuccinos.”

Born in Hull, Mr Duffin has returned to his native Yorkshire and currently lives in Richmond

Fancy a Cuppa North Yorkshire is published on July 28, costing £7.99. For more information visit
