In my opinion this is the very best tea room in Filey. Everything is freshly prepared and everyone who works there are really pleasant and helpful. Spotlessly clean premises, with excellent food. We visit regularly and have never been disappointed.

Quaint little coffee shop in Filey. Very pleasant staff and nice selection of drinks. Can't really fault anything at all and at 4pm on a Monday, it was about the only cafe we could see open!

We have been to the Lighthouse Tea Room many times and have never been disappointed. The staff are always attentive and keen to help, nothing is too much trouble and the food and coffee are excellent quality. We last visited on Mothers' Day - clearly a busy Sunday but this didn't affect the service or quality. Can't wait to go... More

We called into the Lighthouse tea room on a windy Saturday afternoon. Afternoon tea was exactly what was called for after a brisk and breezy down by the beach. The staff were lovely and very accommodating - and especially patient with our children. I actually found this a very relaxing place. All our food was very well presented on tiered... More

I took my son here for cake and milk while I had a coffee. The staff were very welcoming and engaging with my son. I liked the quirky decor too.

Lovely setting, kind and witty greeting. Food was lovely, freshly cooked and tasty. Daughter enjoyed looking at all the photos of lighthouses.

Nice enough tea room with efficient service and very clean. Didn't feel relaxing though and price above average

Gleaming and bright with friendly and prompt service. We only had soup and a toasty which were simple and good, and given the obvious attention to detail I'm sure the whole menu would be. A real joy to see such great pride taken in a business.

We visited the Lighthouse with my partner on a visit to Filey. I am on a gluten free diet; this is the best gluten free menu I have come across in a long time. The gluten-free coconut cake is delicious. Beautiful tea room and Lighthouse coffee surprise!
