The Redbeck Cafe is extremely famous locally for the best fry-ups in an umpteen-mile radius. It only closes on Christmas Day! (Probably as closed doors would lead to local riots). I have sampled the regular fry-up and can recommend it: a well cooked plateful, ample, with plenty of nuclear-hot tea.
I do feel the lack of a veggie fry-up option limits their target demographic unnecessarily, but I guess they're plenty busy enough without encouraging more hungry customers to come streaming through their doors!
The staff are pleasant, friendly and seem to have encyclopaedic memories for the detailed orders flung at them by queuefuls of customers. Pretty good all round.
The redbeck is probably the only place on earth where you can get a full breakfast at anytime of day. The breakfast special is a meal for even the most heartiest of eaters but dont think it is too good on the cholestrol level. The staff are friendly and food is always servered very quickly, however there is no table numbers or waitress service its just a case of the staff shouting what food is ready so make sure you listen out and be aware of what people came in after because they could take your order. The places itself is very basic with old tables and chairs but the staff do try to make it as presentable as possible.
The Redbeck Motel is best seen as a truckers favourite between Wakefield and Crofton. So you'll often see big rigs, motorbikes and lots of leather and beards there! So, if you are wanting a quick sarnie, an emergency out of town place to stay or a greasy fry up there is no where better that fits the bill.. but as a lady I wouldn't personally go there, as there is a lovely carvery (the Cock) just down the road which has a less scary atmosphere and a much nicer ambience! So, if you are a big hairy biker or a trucker in need of a shower, then put a pin in your map for the Redbeck Motel.
