Ye Olde Naked Man Café

Market Place Settle North Yorkshire BD24 9ED 01729 823 230

We say

Generations of families have driven through Settle and been forced to stop by children shouting "Mum, mum! there's a café called the Naked Man!" Well yes, indeed there is, and – if only to stop the commotion in the back seat – you're almost duty bound to stop and investigate. The nude-related excitement, sadly, pretty much stops at the door – one school of thought is that the seventeenth-century building was once an undertakers, giving rise to the idea that you come into the world naked and leave it the same way. Beyond that, what you have is a perfectly decent town-centre café, serving up a no-nonsense menu of soup, sandwiches, baguettes, toasties, filled baked potatoes and Yorkshire puds. No surprises, in the end, save the name, but always worth a stop if you've time to spare in Settle.
