On track for new evening opening

Hassop Station Café is celebrating its fourth anniversary with a new children’s play area and longer hours – opening 9am-9pm, seven days a week, from May 23.

The popular café opened in 2010 on the site of the former Hassop Station and expanded to include cycle hire and a gift shop when the Monsal Trail opened.

Owner Duncan Stokes says: “It’s not so much bistro evenings, more like Hassop Station Café at night. We’re fully licensed, so it will be a lovely place to come on a summer’s evening, sitting out on the sun terrace.”

Head chef Karen Kennedy will develop her range of specials and there will also be new stone baked pizzas.
