The Ugly Duckling


We are sure to have something to tantalise your taste buds in our extensive menu.

Idyllic tearooms based on the riverside in Knaresborough, the perfect location for cyclists, walkers and dogs.

The Ugly Duckling is set in a beautiful spot by the River Nidd in Knaresborough at the end of the Municipal Car Park. So when you arrive in Knaresborough it is ideal for you to pop in and see us and partake of a coffee and cake, or whatever takes your fancy, before heading into the town. It is an ideal starting or finishing point for walkers, and a convenient stopping off point for cyclists. Gluten free sandwiches available if required.
