Dear Customers,

As many of you know, we took the plunge and renovated our old cow shed to create a new tearoom. New customers may not realise, but we used to be in the farmhouse and outside in the garden, but in order to expand we had to change. We believe we have created a rustic, traditional and welcoming tearoom with our customers in mind. The counter, sofa area, dining area and upstairs, all create the feel of an old farmhouse/barn conversion and we do our very best to keep the essence of farming at the heart of everything we do. Outside is the courtyard, which was once the cows' fold yard, where you can sit in the sun trap with the old plough and views of the chestnut trees and cricket pitch whilst being surrounded by the old stone buildings. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our customers, old and new, who have supported our changes and would like you to know how much we value your business.

With our very best wishes, 

Ruth, Anne and Vicky.

~homemade is best~

Situated in the historic village of Bolton Percy, near Tadcaster and York, here at Doylys we offer a tranquil setting for your enjoyment within our converted cow shed and farm courtyard.

We are passionate about baking and cooking good, honest food and believe homemade is best. It is our privilege and aim to serve customers our best homebaking and cooking, alongside great value for money, every time. 

Doyly's is named after our Grandmother who has D'Oyly as her middle name. We always thought it would be a great idea to have a tearoom using her name and we put those dreams into reality in 2003. In 2019, we moved from the farmhouse to the converted cow shed. Almost all the interior is used from reclaimed materials from the farm. We a very proud of our new tearoom and are delighted to share it with you, your friends and families!

Farming has been the traditional trade in our family over many generations. Today, Peter and Henry run the family farm attached to the tearoom. Before the tearoom began, Vicky used to nurse and Ruth and Anne were both primary school teachers. We all now work together running the businesses and are very proud to do so. 

By foot, bike or car, we extend a warm welcome to all our customers. Disabled access available. We are Dementia Friends. 

Dogs welcome outside only.

Assistance dogs welcome inside.





We offer gift vouchers for our tearoom and B&B. 

You could treat your family and friends to anything here at Doyly's from a Cream Tea to money towards a night away! 

Please email with your requirements or just call and arrange over the phone, 01904 744041
