My Favourite Café – RiversMEET

This article is from Signpost 54, Summer 2017

I came across a nice little café at a place called Wood Row, Mickletown. It is in the Aire valley between Leeds & Castleford. Great bird spotting country, with well-known sites such as Fairburn Ings, Methley Mires, Lowther Lakes, St. Aidan's Country Park, Mickletown Ings & Skelton Lakes. Good walking & mountain biking country too.

The café is: riversMEET, 102 Leeds Road, Methley, Leeds LS26 9EP.

The website is: .

The phone no. is 01977 279729.


It is clearly a former public house converted to a café/craft centre, where people can do various things craft-wise. It also has links to local bird-spotting courses & bird photography courses. I can recommend the café. It was busy, a good sign on a midweek lunch time. The service was excellent, as was the scone & jam I had.
