As the last reviewer ,we were also there yesterday at a very busy period & yes they were a little behind clearing tables but as soon as we sat down the table was cleared. A lovely cafe with nice decor & cosy looking. One waitress was a little reserved but the other was very friendly & welcoming & couldn't do... More

We had enjoyed a previous visit but, on a crowded Sunday (21/9), this was not a good experience. Although there were at least three staff serving everything took ages - 45 minutes to produce sandwiches. Tables remained stacked with dirty plates for far too long. More than half the menu was unavailable. Food, when it eventually arrived, was ordinary and... More

This is a lovely place for a bite to eat if you don't fancy a pub meal. Good portions..lovely smoked haddock chowder. Bit of a squeeze at busy times. Staff were pleasant and friendly, didnt feel rushed.. enjoyed reading the paper!

A pleasant enough place but nothing special. We stopped for afternoon tea and the noise and clatter of plates and cups being stacked by the staff spoilt the experience......it is a task that can be carried out with a bit more consideration! Also as with many cafés the process of coffee making with the fancy machine dominates the whole cafe.... More

Reasonably priced and fast service - pot of tea for two, with extra hot water plus a toasted tea cake for £5.30. Good choice of seating inside or outside. Would go here again. This was our third visit from the three times we have visited the area.

We stopped here for a scone and coffee after a walk to Dunstanburgh Castle. The lady who served us was very friendly and the coffee and scones of a good standard. We ordered at the counter but the food and drinks were brought to our table. Very tasty. We sat inside but there was a good sized outside seating area... More

There is little choice in this pretty harbour village and therefore it was not surprising that it was busy. I ordered toast which was described as being thickly cut. I was served 2 slices of ordinary granary sliced bread which was very dry. My husband had a cooked breakfast and the bacon was very overlooked. I overheard another customer being... More

Looking for a non pub based refreshment when exploring the Craster area, we found the shoreline up the hill from the harbour. Whilst the name shoreline is a bit misleading as it is set back a little and no discernible view of the shore, it was still a lovely little eatery with both inside and outside space. Not waitress service,... More
