This is an attractive, modern little cafe in Craster. The home made veg and lentil soup sounded just right, but it was bland and watery when it arrived. Oh well.

I would've liked to stay longer and sit down and eat, but we were on a schedule. It was a perfect spot to pop in and grab a chai latte and Kendal mint cake to sustain me on my castle adventures.

The food at shoreline cafe is average at best especially for the price. However it is a good place for a quick sandwich, panini or jacket potato for lunch. The cafe has a pleasant atmosphere and a strong selection of fresh cakes. The service was OK, probably not enough staff, however the worse thing was they ran out of baguettes... More

My wife and I went out of our way to get a crab sandwich and a cup of tea from here. For £5.95 (just for the sandwich) I expected something special. This is a lot for a takeaway sandwich in this neck of the woods (and I do live in Northumberland - I am not a tourist). Well, when I... More

Called in for a morning coffee prior to taking a walk to Dunstanburgh Castle. Shoreline is very clean and tidy with plenty of well spaced tables, good toilet facilities and an excellent choice of meals and snacks. We opted for cappuccino's and cheese scones which were freshly made and one of the best I have enjoyed. Highly recommended.

It was May Bank Hoilday when we called and it was very busy,in fact the staff couldn't cope and they were just refusing to take orders at times. The fact that people were running round like headless chickens didn't help and I have to say that at least part of the problem was that its badly organised.I have just noticed... More

Many years since we had visited Craster and we were delighted to find The Shoreline Cafe. We both chose the kippers with granary bread. It was delicious.

Lovely food. Great hardworking staff - just not enough of them. Sort it out and you will keep your staff and your customers. At one point the staff put up a well worn printed sign saying they could not take orders for 15 mins. There were enough tables. They just didn't have enough washed crockery. There was a similar situation... More

Thank you for your response. As a business we aim to please our customers 100%, however this is not possible as everyone has very different expectations. Where of course I am very sorry you were politely informed that there would be a wait for service howerver after various amounts of market research we have found this to be one of... More
