Seaside café - walkers and dogs welcome

This was an unplanned visit ahead of a walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle. We found the café pleasant, very ‘seaside’ with decking inside as well as out. A nice touch is the sign ‘muddy boots and dogs welcome’. There is seating outdoors on a small terrace with a lovely sea view. The menu was... read more

Called in for a light bite after an enjoyable walk to Dunstanbrugh Castle. The coffee here is brilliant, not sure what brand they use but it was very good and had heard others mention it too! Food is really good and staff are helpful. It can get a bit crowded during busy times but I think this shows it is... More

A real gem serving hot fresh food and coffee/tea with cakes with a friendly smile. Dog-friendly and with decked floors this place is fine with wet, windswept walkers too! We had kippers for breakfast one day which were delicious and stopped for coffee on other occasions. A small selection of essential groceries and postcards make this a handy store too.

Friendly. Excellent home made scones and coffee. Just right to take a break during a walk up the Northumberland coast. On the way the Dunstanburgh perhaps.

We stopped here for a scone and a coffee having just completed a long walk. When we approached the counter to order, we were told that they had stopped serving as they needed to wash up. The cafe was very busy as both indoor and outdoor seating was occupied. It was not full, however. We had no choice other than... More

There is not a lot of food options in Craster and this is one of the more accessible ones if you have children. Craster is a very small place. We visited as a family of five on a dry but cool day in August. The café has an outside seating area, with views of the sea, and if you are... More

We popped in here for coffee and to see what was on the menu. The staff were friendly and the coffee good. The menu offered a good choice of snacks and drinks. Overall feel is cosy and welcoming. We will certainly return.

Love this place. Perfect for lunch or a snack after a bracing walk to the castle. We have been here a few times and look forward to the crab sandwiches, haddock chowder and cake for afters.Very welcoming, good value, great location

Visited at lunchtime and was pleased to find dogs and muddy boots both welcome. Not an extensive menu but service was quick although not especially friendly. A bit pricy for a sandwich but the coffee was good.
