    We would like to thank you all most sincerely for the courteous, kind and considerate way in which you dealt with my enquiry regarding bringing my disabled friend to eat in the cafe yesterday lunchtime.  We all felt the service we received in connection with this visit, together with the delicious food, was all that we could desire at the start of what proved to be a most enjoyable day for us all.

    C. and B. W. of Beverley 30.08.2013

    Mrs J. T of Redcar 26.07.2013

    On behalf of my family I would like to say, Thank You!

    We picked a little over 3kg of strawberries and a small punnett of red raspberries, all of which did not disappoint nor did they last long.  Picked on Sunday and all but gone by Tuesday.  Between the 5 of us taking them to school, work and just having them as a snack they're gone.

    We plan on returning again in the near future and look forward to the pumpkins too.

    On a side note, your staff are wonderful and very helpful.  Just like the strawberries, they do not disappoint.

    Thank you again.

    The S Family 14.07.2013

    Loved our visit today, found you by accident and what a find!  Picked strawberries and raspberries as well as purchasing some lovely produce from your shop.  Great service and friendly staff.

    Excellent in every way!  One of the best farm shops/cafes we have ever visited

    R.M. of Edinburgh 08.04.2013

    We love coming here, all year round.  The staff are lovely especially with children which is rare these days.  It's so nice to be in a farm shop cafe where there are no signs saying children must be supervised at all times, children musn't go into the shop etc.,  I recommend The Balloon Tree all the time and wish it continued success.

    R P-W 01.04.2013

    Enjoyable, visit well worth the little drive out

    L.H. 24.03.2013

    Think you've all done brilliantly this year keeping the shop/cafe up to its high standard.  Was in Balloon Tree yesterday and came away with a fantastic selection of your meat/vegs for homemade soups/casseroles.  Warm wishes.

    D.S. of York 09.11.2012

    Will definitely be back!  My kind of shop! Beautiful!  Thank you for the experience!

    R.E. of York 15.10.2012

    Leek and Onion sausage roll - excellent

    Chicken, bacon and mushroom pie - beautiful

    Weather outside to sit and eat with coffee made it all perfect.  Will call again

    Mrs M.C. of Flamborough 07.10.2012

    Can always be sure of a delicious meal.  We made a detour on our way to Whitby to stock up on delicious snacks to take with us from the farmshop and enjoyed lunch in the cafe.  Well worth making a special trip.  I love the Balloon Tree!

    C.H. 05.10.2012

    A most enjoyable visit both for the food in the cafe but an excellent farm shop.  Staff very helpful

    Mrs J.S. of Huddersfield 28.09.2012
