We, Hannah and Marcelo, started Yakumama as a street food business back in 2014, catering for weddings and trading at street food events up and down the country.

After a series of pop ups at The Old Co-op building we were given the chance to rent the ground floor of the building which we jumped at.

Through a Kickstarter campaign, 377 brilliant backers helped us raise just over half of the funds needed to transform the space into our Cantina and bar. We worked tirelessly for every day through February and march to get the doors open, which we finally did in April 2019.


We're not trying to do anything fancy here. We simply want to deliver honest, tasty, vibrant  food, quality drinks and a nice place to be for Todmorden and the surrounding areas.

Our team of passionate bar tenders work hard to create delicious cocktails with house made syrups and sauces, and we have an ever changing range of local craft ales on tap. All of our wine is vegan friendly and organic.


"The staff are really lovely, funny and immensely polite and the place itself has a wonderful atmosphere. Then the food itself"...

“It was one of the best meals I have had! can't wait to go again!”

“Excellent food and beer, and great service.”
