The Blitz Cafe ~ Hebden Bridge.

Have you ever been to Hebden Bridge?  Its a bohemian little Yorkshire town , packed full of quirky independent shops. There’s hobbledy cobbledy streets and surrounding  craggy countryside. We drove here the other weekend and saw quite a bit of said countryside!  The satnav took us on a bit of a magical mystery tour, so we were a bit frazzled by the time we finally arrived.

It was a rainy & wet yet humid day.  Even the ducks and geese were bedraggled. 🙂

We went in search of lunch and happily found  a cafe above Feathergills Emporium in st George’s Square called The Blitz Cafe. Its a 1940’s tea room brimming with wartime
memorabilia.

The menus are written in ration book style with wartime inspired dishes such as Corned Beef Hash, Rabbit Pie and Blitz Rarebit.  Wil chose Bacon & Egg pie and I enjoyed my Homity Pie.

My Homity Pie was very tasty. Its made with spam, leeks and savoury mash. 🙂

There were some delicious homemade cakes on the menu too. And old fashioned pudding treats such as Spotted Dick and Jam Rolypoly. The waitresses dressed up in 1940s attire . I wish I had asked for a picture.

Downstairs in the Emporium there were wonderful sweet smelling aromas from the Apothocary. Lotions and potions galore.

So if your ever in Hebden Bridge , why not bob into the Blitz Cafe for a cuppa or a frefreshing glass of Rhubarb & Rosehip Cordial ( a waitresses recommendation  which was amazingly good) and a piece of pie or afternoon tea.
