SADDLEWORTH, and Uppermill especially, are blessed with every kind of eaterie to suit all tastes and pockets.
Now, two have been included in a new book, Café Culture, featuring 38 independent, tea rooms, cafes and fish and chip shop restaurants in the North West.
Saddleworth’s entries can be found at either end of Uppermill’s High Street tourist ‘strip’ –Betty’s Fish and Chip Shop and Limekiln Café.
Each book also includes vouchers to the value of £100 that can be redeemed on food and drink at all 38 establishments, subject to price spend.
“I set out with the difficult (but very enjoyable) task of visiting as many independent cafes, tea rooms and fish and chip restaurants throughout the North West as I could find,” explained author Victoria Greenwood.
“The list was then whittled down to what I considered to be the best 38.
“We wanted to find the hidden gems. Our main focus was on great local produce, the fantastic use of them and everything being homemade.
“The cafes we selected have that little something special and Limekiln is just this.
“It has a great mix of traditional English classics and a host of delightful specials which are always changing; a must find in a café of the calibre we wanted to put in the book.”
On Betty’s inclusion, Victoria added: “Fish and chip restaurants had to be just that, no takeaways traditional English.
“Betty’s is just that great traditional fish and chip restaurant serving lovely fresh fish perfectly battered with fresh chips.
“Les and his staff are always friendly and welcoming and the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere with interesting décor.”
The book is priced at £14.99 and includes £2 vouchers to the value of £100 which can be used on a table bill over £15.
Vouchers may be used in all cafes on every visit.
