River Garden Cafe, Sleights
The River Garden Cafe is nothing more than a simple timber built tea room situated on the banks of the river Esk amid a colourful garden centre. The décor and the food is basic. Tea and cakes are served from a self-service hatch in the corner. It’s all pretty functional. So why would we send you there? Because the setting is delightful. Come on a sunny day, sit on the river bank, watch the ducks and feed the sparrows. Better still, hire a rowing boat for a couple of hours from Ruswarp Pleasure Boats, a mile up river and moor here for lunch or tea. Nothing quite like messing about in….
