Really lovely welcome for us and our 2 year old. Great tea, lovely fresh cakes and a complete gluten free menu; including gf cake. A fantastic find when finding short notice gf tea and cake can be very tricky!

My wife & I popped in for a quick cup of tea and we were very impressed. We then wandered around the town and the beach. The discussion turned to lunch and we decided to return, what a good decision! Good service, polite and friendly staff and good quality food. The menu is limited, but what they have is very,... More

We visited the Lighthouse Tea Room after it was recommended to us by friends and so popped in one dinner for a drink and a slice of cake. To say it was a little tea room the tables were nicely spaced out and you had some privacy unlike other tea rooms we have visited where you always feel squashed in... More

I visited the Lighthouse Tea Room wit!h my husband and elderly parents at the end of October. My mother is in a wheelchair and the staff and proprietor could not have been more helpful. The place was immaculate, as were the staff, the food was great. I had the scrambled egg with smoked salmon on a toasted muffin, which was... More

This tea room has lots of lighthouses inside, hence the name. The food is superb and the staff friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Now that we have moved to Filey, we will be regular visitors. Well worth a visit.

A big group of 10 of us rocked up at the lighthouse cafe one afternoon. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming and pretty much rearranged the whole cafe to fit us in! The cafe itself is very cosy, with a great selection of sandwiches, soups and amazing afternoon teas/ cakes. It caters well to gluten-free diners too. Everything was... More

Fantastic lunch. The toasted ham and cheese sandwich was excellent. But the highlight was the homemade Strawberry and Coconut cake. Very yummy indeed. Recommend a visit!

Visit Filey 5/6 times per year for weekend breaks and Sunday brunch is always at The Lighthouse. Even if we wanted to go elsewhere (and we don't) my son would never allow it! It's the one place he is happy to pay - and always does. Paul is a delightful host and always ready for a chat, the rest of... More
