Wap-en-take (noun): 'Besides being divided into three Ridings, East, North and West', a 'Riding' being derived from the Norse word “thriding,” meaning a third part. Yorkshire was further sub-divided into administrative areas called Wapentakes - the Danelaw equivalent of an Anglo-Saxon Hundred in most other counties. The word derived from an assembly or meeting place, usually at a cross-roads or near a river, where literally one’s presence or a vote was taken by a show of weapons, where-in after a night of merriment would ensue.” They wanted to create ‘A Little Piece of Yorkshire’, by combining a Bakery, Café and Bar to serve and support the local community. Bread is freshly baked on site daily, including gluten free bread. Cakes are baked on site. The food menu is as local as possible, sourcing all ingredients daily from our neighbours in Kirkgate Market. Meat & eggs provided by Malcolm Michaels butchers with fruit & veg from Neil’s.
