In a 2 day stay we came to this coffee shop 3 times as we liked it so much!I had the pate and cheese platter for lunch which was very appetising.My sisters had home baked cake which they said was delicious. The furniture is quirky and eclectic; decorative details are interesting.Staff are efficient and pleasant.

I have visited Tea and Tipple twice and have been very disappointed on both occasions. The staff do not have any customer service skills and are very unwelcoming from the moment you step through the door. No welcome, poor tone when pushed to take an order and no good bye. Will not be back.

I was in Corbridge at 9.30 on Saturday and wanted a quick breakfast before an appointment. After first being somewhat abruptly rejected from the Larder (who don't do breakfast until 10am) I tried this place as a last resort as time was now tight. What lovely staff which I know is contrary to other reviews but speak as you find.... More

Oh dear! Gave this place another chance last week and popped in for lunch with my Mum as it was her birthday. What a mistake. Again! Staff still grumpy and rather slow to clear dirty tables. Ordered a chicken caesar salad and was shocked at what eventually appeared! A pile of leaves with a splash of watery dressing and a... More

Don't do decaf, don't do skimmed milk, don't do white bread!!! What about people's dietary requirements???!!! Staff didn't seem bothered and used a 'shrug of the shoulders'- I left because they didn't offer any solutions and again informed me they used brown bread only.

Went in as the place looked busy and bustling. No tables inside for just a couple of minutes and then a member of staff said that some people had just paid so a table would soon be ready. We felt that the staff were somewhat neutral - neither friendly or otherwise. The sandwiches were well filled and the salad and... More

Lunchtime and not overly busy - the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, the broccoli and Stilton soup was good. Coffee was spot on too! We has no issues with the service offered - it was friendly and attentive. Oh and yes the ginger and Guinness cake was very good.

We visited on a quite Sunday without having looked at Trip Advisor and couldn't believe how accurate the reviews to be. The food is excellent as is the environment only to be let down by the attitude of all the staff....they just don't seem to know the first thing about customer service and have a 'couldn't be bothered' attitude....what a...

Four of us took lunch at the "Tea and Tipple" and found the standard of food excellent - a good tomato and chill soup as well excellent salads. The "platter" salad consists of salad, pate, chutney local cheeses (on this occasion Northumberland Nettle and Kielder) and ham with two slices of excellent wholemeal bread and can be highly recommended.
