Good things to keep you on the move…

Otley is a famous pub town with more than 20 hostelries to enjoy, while it also has a fabulous variety of coffee shops and tearooms, a number of restaurants and some very good take-aways, especially when it comes to fish ‘n’ chips.

You can check out a full list of places to eat and drink here, but the below have a special affinity with the cycling community.

Bloomfield Square

Bloomfield Square Coffee Shop Located just outside the town centre opposite Sainsbury’s exit on Gay Lane, this speciality coffee shop serves cakes and sandwiches as well as offering both printing courses in letterpress and woodcut and having great rates for own hand-crafted cards, invites and posters.

For cyclists

Bloomfield Square is also cycle friendly… There are bike racks outside and a selection of locks inside if you forgot to bring one with you. The coffee and cakes provide excellent sustenance for riders, and Chevin Cycles is just around the corner.
