Northumberland a secret breakfast venue

We have visited here for lunch and breakfast. Fantastic choice for vegetarians as well. Large portions and really good quality food. We are going to try afternoon tea next. Small venue but this makes it extra special. Excellent service with friendly staff.

Have visited here at least five times in the last year, including a 25-mile or so detour just for the frangipani once! The cakes and pastries are all generously proportioned and the fresh pastry is delicious. Afternoon tea has stumped me twice, luckily it's no trouble to take anything leftover away with you. The home made bread is very tasty.... More

I have visited the Running Fox many times and often recommend the food to others, but have always been aware that there is very much a time limit on the time that you have the table for. Today was a particularly unfortunate case: my friends who are holidaying fromm Bedfordshire booked the table for midday and asked for a downstairs... More

Really lovely food, huge portions so be prepared to take some home. Unlimited tea or coffee, with attentive waitresses. Cafe is beautifully decorated, always busy. Booking essential at weekends. I would definitely recommend.

This is a small bakery and cafe. The food is excellent and the bakery sells the most delicious bread and cakes. Fantastic Value but you must book as it gets really busy

Only visited the bakery, but everything we bought was delicious. Sourdough bread particularly good. Nice choice of cakes. Bit expensive but a lovely treat

The Running Fox is a little bakery and cafe by the river Coquet in the village of Felton about 11 miles north of Morpeth. It's a busy place and they offer a wide range of home baked food, including a choice of five quiches, different pies and sandwiches, not to mention the cakes. The service is a perhaps a little...
