The cafe looked nice and staff were friendly. I was in the cafe for a few hours and the only criticisms I could find were the minimum spend of £10 to use your card and that the WiFi wasn't working while I was there, but these this happen. Overall, very nice place.

I live close to Rothbury and enjoy a visit here. I have to say that I find the coffee quite bitter but the scones are great. I belong to a local walking group and we're always made welcome. I had a Christmas meal here a couple of years ago, it was tasty and good value. My only criticism of that... More

Last week after a long hot afternoon at Cragside (Nat Trust), we found this pretty cafe and entered about 1 minute before closing time, seeking a pot of tea, as everywhere else was closed. We were greeted kindly and served with tea and a lovely attitude by the Manageress and her lovely smiley team. How refreshing that places like Tomlinson's... More

We discovered this place last year, and often visit when we are in Northumberland. On every occasion the food has been excellent, and the atmosphere cosy and friendly. I was particularly impressed with their catering for my GF/veggie dietary requirements. Really tasty good food, and served very attractively.

My husband and I called in for coffee, having first sussed out that they had a "proper" coffee machine! I like my coffee strong and had two shots in my cappuccino at no extra cost - in fact the coffee was so good I had to have another! More temptation then ensued and we succumbed to having an apple crumble... More

Called in for lunch prior to a visit to Cragside which is nearby. The best children's menu I have ever seen anywhere! The food did not disappoint, lovely surroundings and very relaxed and friendly feel to the place. My only criticism would be that he service was not as good as it could have, seemed a little inexperienced but otherwise... More

Enjoyed our visit on a rainy day even though the young man that served our pot of tea didn't mop up after he'd spilt it when serving.However the French Onion Soup was brilliant and the lady boss very informative about the area and warm and friendly.Well done.Will be back for that Soup.

On a regular visit to Rothbury we decided to try Tomlinson's cafe as our usual little tea room was closed. We ordered and paid for our tea/coffee and cakes and sat in the rather nice surroundings to await service. At that point we were horrified to see a lady with two large and rather smelly dogs take the dogs out... More

Excellent cafe - worth a visit. Coffee was excellent & scones were home made with decent quality jam. Staff were attentive and charming - would deffinitely recommend. Will be going back with the family to check out the home made burgers as they looked really good.
