Sid’s Cafe in the pretty town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, is the very famous cafe that’s featured in the longest running and much loved British sitcom “Last of the Summer Wine”, which was written by Roy Clarke and ran from 1973 to 2010.
Open every day except for Christmas Day, Sid’s Cafe is a fully working cafe that is instantly recognisable due to its appearance on our TV screens, with its original red ‘cafe’ sign, white painted front and green gingham curtains.
When the BBC first decided to use the building in the show, it was being used by the ironmongers next door as a paint store. The owner turned it into a proper cafe when fans of the show started visiting Holmfirth, expecting it to be a real cafe.
There’s a good selection of Last of the Summer Wine souvenirs available in the cafe; key rings, fridge magnets, mugs, postcards, t-shirts and small or large gift baskets.
The menu at Sid’s Cafe has something to suit every age group, from homemade soup of the day, sandwiches, jacket potatoes with a choice of filling and spaghetti on toast. There’s also a large selection of drinks and plenty of tasty desserts to try, including homemade cakes and bakes, special ice cream milkshakes, scones or banana split. Child size portions are also available on request for most of the meals on the menu.
Sid’s Cafe can seat 26 people and in the warmer weather, there’s seating for 8 people at the front of the cafe. There’s also a tea garden round the back, where you can sit and enjoy a tasty meal or snack on a hot summer’s day.
