4 reviews of Squire's Cafe in English
The customers were shouting (in frustration) at the bar staff, who didn't even seem capable of making coffee between them! The manager was shouting and swearing at customers (Im not joking, it was outrageous!) because he seemed to think that the customers were to blame for "f*cking things up", when in reality the bar staff had not provided them what they had ordered/paid for!
Have been going to squires since i started biking 8 years ago and it is the best atmosphere you will ever come across as a biker in west yorkshire. Wednesday evenings seem to be the time to go with bikes crammed into the carpark and road side. From here you have the choice of the motorway ride or the excellent country roads, just watch out for the lovely policemen who are watching out for anyone who has a careles moment and goes over the speed limit
'Run by bikers for bikers’ is how Squire’s Cafe describes itself, with what is possibly the UK’s busiest biker cafe, even more so than the Ace cafe in London.
The venue for numerous bike club meetings, the Cafe - also known as the 'Sherburn Cafe’ (after nearby Sherburn-in-Elmet) or the 'Squire’s Mike Bar’ from its earlier days - hosts an incredible 10,000 bikers a week, on average. Yes - that’s 10,000. Wednesday is apparently the busiest day, although it’s pretty busy as week-ends too. It’s situated just off the A1(M) motorway, on junction north of the M62 interchange (it’s actually just off the old A1).
As well as food and drink, there’s a small (and a bit pricey) motorcycle accessory shop, and of course lots of parking (although this can get congested, especially in summer evenings and week-ends). Service also slows up when they are busy, so just be patient, sit back and admire the bikes.
The site itself is a bit of a sprawl, and there’s an outside servery at busy times, serving trad greasy-spoon fare such as burgers, pasties and fries (well, what do you expect at a biker venue?). There are veggie items available as well, in the form of cheese and tomato pizza, beans on toast etc.
There are all sorts of events going on during the year, many raising money for charity, and an annual 'Yorkshire Rock 'n’ bike’ show, held in August. There’s room available for camping as well, if you’ve brought your tent.
A real mecca.

ottogang, 1 November 2007: 10.000 is nearly unbelieveable.
There is no place for only one car.
