Super scones

Visited on the strength of the reviews on here-spot on everyone! The scones were soft, fluffy and large and were accompanied by a choice of home made jams. 'Proper' fresh coffee was served very hot. All in all a great little cafe.

A lovely tea room in Filey which offers a good gluten free menu The staff are friendly and helpful and the food served is fresh and well presented. The room is very clean with loads of unusual lighthouse photos on the walls .We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed.

Very clean with a good Lighthouse theme. Usual menu, excellent Lighthouse photos on the wall by the owner (allegedly 200 different lighthouses.) Good coffee from a proper espresso machine, but no large claims that this is fair trade coffee. (Alot of cafes in Filey seem to still be serving only filter coffee, but not here.) Would eat there again.

The decor of this cosy and calm little tea room is lovely - photos and memorabilia of lighthouses around the world. But what sets it apart from many other places is the attention to detail - the friendly waitresses automatically ask if you'd like extra hot water with your tea, hot or cold milk with your coffee and you're given...

Thought this tea rooms was a little overpriced for what it was. We had a pot of tea for two in the end as a sandwich was around five pounds. As a family of five we thought this was too expensive. Nice looking tea rooms but overpriced.

Love this little jewel in the crown that is Filey. A great place for that mid day meal or afternoon tea. Well worth a visit.

Called in here after reading the reviews but maybe they were having an 'off day' as on this occasion it seemed very average. My friend and I sat at the table for ages before anyone noticed - staff seemed a bit thin on the ground - and when our food came it was accompanied by a very boring salad with... More
