Visited here having walked to Dunstanburgh Castle and in need of a sugar hit. Lovely little place, can recommend the Mars crispies and lemon panacotta tart. Family friendly, good view and attentive and chatty staff.

My daughter, my grand-daughters and I visited last Saturday after a wonderful walk along the coast towards Dunstanburgh Castle. We usually go to the pub but this was a very welcome change. The children were catered for with paper and crayons and we had tea, juice, tea cake and caramel shortbread - all lovely and home made shortbread. A very... More

Grumpy staff at the till .Missed off coffees from the order .Watery coffee.Dirty tables .Wanted to charge a "surcharge" for using a debit card for the "missed coffee from the order " - their mistake!

I ordered a cheese and roast vegetable panini my husband the kippers, my daughter the crab sandwiches and my son in law the vegetable chilli. We all enjoyed our meals and followed them up with a sweet. Two of had... More

Visited this little cafe after a walk to the castle nearby. I had the crab sandwich (see photos) and my husband had the special of smoked five bean chilli. Both delicious. Lovely coffees. Nice cake for dessert. Friendly staff. Great dog friendly area right in the front which made a great people watching spot. Great little place to eat as... More

We only stopped for a coffee which was a bit of a shame as the menu looked great and the food being delivered to neighbouring tables looked very appetising! Staff were very friendly. It's certainly bigger inside than it looks from the outside and don't forget the small sun deck tucked around the back if the weather's good.

Awful experience. Tables were dirty & staff made no attempt to clear. Half the food listed was unavailable. When it arrived my daughter's panini. Such a shame as we liked this cafe when we visited 18months ago.

Very busy day in late October so the service was somewhat shambolic. Just tried a machiatto and an ice cream, waited for quite a while but got served eventually. Not really worth waiting for, perhaps would be better on a quiet day.

my husband and I visited this cafe after visiting it several years ago as it is the only one in the village. We knew the service was poor after our last visit, but after a long walk were ready for a quick bite to eat. We walked in to be totally ignored by two young girls behind the counter and... More

Tried to visit today at around 2pm, there were no seats inside available so we went outside as the waitress said there may be seats outside...Seemed to be only 2 young girls serving. Sat outside nobody came, went inside to order food to be told we arent serving any more food at the moment, just scones or drinks. Yes thanks... More
