About Sid’s Cafe...
Sid’s Cafe is the cafe made famous by ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ - the world’s longest running sitcom which began in 1973. With its distinctive white frontage, red ‘cafe’ sign and green gingham curtains it is instantly recognisable as the cafe frequented by Compo, Clegg and Foggy.
Sid’s Cafe is a real cafe and is open every day (apart from Christmas Day and when filming takes place). The cafe used to be a fish & chip shop and was being used as a paint store for the ironmongers next door when the BBC spotted it in 1973. When fans of the series began coming to Holmfirth expecting to find a genuine cafe the owner decided to turn it in to one!
