General

  • Biker site on a café bar, open since the 1970s
  • Café open daily with weekly and weekend biker meets
  • Sunday roast, weekly carvery and licensed bar

‘Run by bikers for bikers’ goes the tagline of the roaringly popular Squires Café Bar in Selby, North Yorkshire, which has been rallying – and fortifying – biker troops since the 1970s.

Bike and club meets, regular events and live music, an on-site bike shop and a once-monthly Autojumble to pick up secondhand bike gear have all been lined up over the years by owners Harry and Sue, who ran the biker-friendly Squires Milk Bar at Sherburn-in-Elmet before moving here. There’s even an indoor ‘ice rink’ – it's not quite clear how ‘traditionally biker’ this is, but the thought of café patrons slipping around in their leathers is a hoot…

Café prices at Squires are cheap as chips (which you can have with gravy and stuffed inside a giant Yorkshire pud); for something a bit posher, a carvery of the café’s own farm-reared Aberdeen Angus is available for Sunday roast and on Thursday evenings; and for pints/events, a licensed bar and an events room for hire are available too.

Squires Café Bar is open seven days a week in summer, but it’s on Wednesdays and weekends that regulars roar up: Wednesdays following the local biker meet tradition started by Harry and Sue in the 1960s, and weekends for meets, charity events, live gigs and general lounging about in leathers.

To preserve the grass areas of the site, the owners allow the use of off-ground barbecues, but not one that will damage the grass. Campfires are not allowed.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Please note the electric hook-ups for touring pitches are 16-amp and token-operated. Tokens can be bought from the café for £5 each.

Showers are also token operated and each £1 token lasts for approximately 3 minutes.

The indoor skate ring is open Tuesday to Sunday, 3pm-7pm, priced at £3 per person for half an hour.

    Biker friendly and atmosphere was good. Clean facilities. Good location and nearby roads for bikers.

    Disliked: 

    Every time I've stayed here, there's ridiculous noise from other campers in the caravan pitches at 3am in the morning (they were blasting loud music and doing karaoke). Seems to be symptomatic of the site. Food is also usually good, but wasn't up to scratch this time. Overcooked.

    The facilities were clean and amazing. The pub was also really friendly. They weren’t expecting anyone the next day so let us sign out later. The pitch was large enough that you weren’t squished together and there were multiple places that were really level.

    Stopped for two nights. As a motorcycle pitch, you stay on parcel of land near the shop at the rear of Squires Cafe Bar. Access to shower block (£1 for shower token) and toilets near.
    Cafe open early for coffee etc. The bar wasn’t open but just ask for a beer at the food counter.
    The pitch price per night is good value for money.

    Disliked: 

    We moved pitch after first night as a broken manhole cover near shower block had an awful smell coming from it. After speaking to a groundsman who tried his best to cover it we decided to move pitch..lol.

Local attractions

Squires Café Bar is well placed for the Yorkshire coast and both the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors national parks, about 10 miles from Leeds city centre and with York within biking distance for a day trip.

On fine and sunny days, ramble/bike along, fish from or take a boat out on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, the longest in Northern England, or take a picnic to the 1500 acres of parkland at Temple Newsam House and Farm, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots’s caddish hubby Lord Darnley and listed as one of the top three museum sites in the country by an author in the know.

Xscape Yorkshire is a nifty nearby option for rainy days or indoor evenings, as it’s crammed with activities such as Laserzone and adventure golf, restaurants, bars, clubs, a cinema and shops (the outlet shopping village Junction 32 is just opposite).

Further afield, the Doncaster Dome has a seven-pool waterworld and the UK's only split level ice rink – you’ll have had loads of practice by then at the Squires Café Bar rink…

Must see

  • Lotherton Hall & Gardens (2.8 miles)
  • Xscape Castleford (5.4 miles)
  • Royal Armouries Museum (10.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Nostell Priory and Parkland (10.0 miles)
