My wife and I visited Barnard Castle whilst in vacation this week and parked across from Clarendons. It looked inviting so we went in. My wife had a prawn sandwich and I had garlic prawns on toast. We both had a great (very large) cup of coffee as well. Prices are very reasonable. The home made cake looked superb -... More

Clean, excellent service and lovely food. We loved the decor and stylish Lloyd Loom furniture and comfy cushions.

We went in for lunch today. We ordered a omelettes and a panini. It was very very good. Not surprisingly considering the quality of the food, the cafe was very busy. Well done Clarendon cafe!

We popped in for a couple of sandwiches because most other places in Barnard Castle seemed to stop serving food at 3 but we were glad we did. The decor is very welcoming, staff were friendly and you didn't have to wait long for food. The sandwiches were ok but our 5 crisps each were stale. I think we picked... More

We got lost and ended up heading towards Durham... We took a turn off the A66 towards Barnards Castle - never heard of it before, parked and went looking for food! We went into Clarendons and were seated immediately, warmly greeted by very child friendly and happy staff. The food was lovely and we were very pleased we got lost!... More

Came upon Clarendon's, which from the outside looked clean and fresh. once inside came the downfall, We were greeted I must say by a pleasant girl, who was clearing a table for us, which was nice of her to be...

Visited for coffee and cake. Perfectly acceptable although we did have to ask for hot water and wait around to pay the bill. Waitress was ok but not particularly pleasant. I think there are better teashops to visit in Barnard Castle.

Great wee spot to stop for lunch, and my partner loved his burger (from the specials board) - from the local butcher. All good. I had a 'baked' potato. This was really disappointing. Clearly microwaved and about a quarter of the cheese that I believe should have been served. So essentially I got to enjoy about four mouthfuls of nuked... More

Called in here early afternoon after a walk around the castle and the street market, and was delighted to find it is a traditional tea room (silver service) with very enjoyable snack meals and confectionery. Would thoroughly recommend it.
