Established in 2011, Bojangles Bistro has been recently refurbished following the dreadful Storm Desmond of December 2015. Yvonne, Jim and the team re-opened in April 2016 after much hard work: cleaning, drying out and refurbishing. We are very proud of our brand new contemporary interior with its attractive and comfortable furniture; we think the blend of soft vibrant colours and ceramic floor tiling really stands out with its airy and modern look.

We are proud of our helpful and friendly staff, and in our small team everyone has a key role to play. Erica Ruby, who has been with Yvonne and Jim since the beginning, is the mainstay in the kitchen producing delicious freshly cooked foods and home baked pies, cakes and scones. Diane is our front of house specialist, ensuring folk enjoy their visit and want to come back!

Many businesses in Appleby and beyond were affected by Storm Desmond and it hit the town hard. It’s a tribute to the resilience of the local people that, now, Appleby in Westmorland has recovered its former grace and can smile again.

Many visitors to Appleby, not least during the world famous Horse Fair held every year in the first week of June, will be familiar with the wide and beautiful tree-lined Boroughgate which leads up to the medieval castle from the cloisters of Saint Lawrence’s church. A short distance away the river Eden, already a significant water course, threads its way in a big loop around the town, which encompasses a delightful riverside walk and the wide expanse of the green cricket field.

There are pretty caravan and camping parks in the area, together with a host of B&Bs and hotels to choose from.

Appleby is ideally situated for days out in both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, which are both half an hour or so away by car.

The town has good rail links too. Appleby is a station stop on the wild and panoramic Settle to Carlisle railway with frequent services every day.

Yvonne and Jim have increased the scope of the business to offer private functions and catering for outside events, which are proving increasingly popular.

If you’d like to contact us regarding a private party here at the Bistro or delivering a bespoke catering service to your home or outside event, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
