Escape for Coffee…..and cocktails……..and cake!

Today I had a rare week day off. The other half was away biking and Hugo was snoozing after a walk down the river. It was time for some Me time!  I met up with a friend who had the afternoon off too and we escaped for an hour to a new ‘Coffee and Cocktail ‘ bar in Clitheroe.

Escape Coffee & Cocktails is situated at number ten Market Place in the centre of town. As you can see from the pictures it is done out in quite a rustic style, bricked walls and original beams. It has a different look from other bars in Clitheroe. We sat in the back room and ordered tea, coffee, cocktails and cake. 🙂

For now the only food available is cake….which was fine by us. We sampled generous portions of Victoria Sponge and Red Velvet cake. Jo had a fruit tea and a glass of wine. I had an americano coffee and a cloudy apple gin cocktail. This came served in a teapot which was a quirky touch. Deliciously refreshing :).And seemingly never ending….so good value for money!

There is a very varied cocktail menu ( so i need to return soon! ) with cocktails costing from £7 each.  A two for One Happy Hour Mon-Wed , 5-7pm  sounds the ideal time. Coffees roasted by a company on the Yorkshire moors, tea from China, soft drinks, bottled beers and ciders and a good wine menu completes the selection of drinks on offer.

Did I mention ‘Escape’ is a dog friendly bar. We met this very cute Border Terrier called Stan who was a very well behaved old gentleman. 🙂

For a relaxing coffee or drink in the afternoon , we found it to be the perfect venue to while away a couple of hours. I can imagine it gets very busy at weekends ,so should have a pretty buzzing vibe in the evenings. And ladies there are the all important hair dryer and ghds in the powder room. Just in case!

A great addition to Clitheroe. 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for such a lovely review! It is a completely different atmosphere in the evenings, so you will have to come back and sample a few more cocktails! x
