We stopped for a drink and a bite to eat whilst cycling from Warkworth to Bamburgh. All the food looked good, and our scone was fresh. Friendly service, but while dogs and muddy boots may be welcome, there's nowhere in easy sight for bikes. Average value for money (this is Craster).

My wife and I have been here before, usually for a light lunch while we are taking a stroll along the coastline. As a coeliac, I usually resort to jacket potato, as sandwiches are off the menu. I don't know if it is a recent addition, but gluten free bread is on the menu - fresh, not long life. My... More

Super cafe, we had Craster kippers (perfectly cooked; my husband thought they were the best he had ever tasted) home made soup & cakes in a lovely setting. It's about time that Craster had a good cafe - been a gap for many years!

Had taken the dog for a walk when the rain started yet again. Was close to the Shoreline Cafe and as there was a notice on the window saying 'dogs welcome' in I went. Cheerful welcome, excellent coffee and yummy scone. The dog thought it was pretty good too. Quite a lot of eating places in Northumberland are dog friendly... More

Visited this village by the sea on our way home from a lovely weeks holiday in Northumberland. Nice Cafe, and great that they are dog friendly both inside and out which is very unusual - but great for us. Even dog water bowl available - good stuff. We Sat outside, windy morning, but great that a good height fence protected... More

Have to have kippers for breakfast if you stay at Craster, which we did at Shoreline. Friendly and efficient service and reasonably priced.

Arrived 10 am bank holiday Monday . It was already getting very full so we thought we'd have a long wait . However the service was excellent and the food(full English breakfast) was probably the best I've tasted. The sausages and bacon were fab. I just wish it was nearer home so I could go more often!

A lovely dog friendly coffee shop to end a lovely walk. The cakes were really nice. The staff were very helpful and quick service. It was nice to find a coffee shop that opened to 5pm.
