The staff here offer a warm and friendly welcome, the food is pretty good and there is a huge selection of teas available, took me a good few minutes to decide on what to have but I certainly wasn't disappointed! Its a quirky little place and there's a little gift shop where you can buy a bag of tea to... More

My first visit to Alnwick in 6 years or so. Delighted to find Bari Tea, warm friendly and helpful service. Good advice around the tea and how to enjoy it to the full. Made my partner and our child feel very welcome. I can highly recommend the white chocolate and cranberry scone. Yes more than just your average tea shop.... More

We loved the funny, witty menus. The member of staff there was extremely helpful and her knowledge on teas is spot on. And we didn't wait long at all. I highly recommend the coffee cake with Earl Grey. The staff will certainly give you great advice on what tea's to have there.

Huge variety of teas available here and to buy the leaves to take away. We had afternoon tea for £10 for two which was good value. Tea is served in a pot with a timer so you know when to remove the leaves in their filter bag. Fruit scones served with jam and cream or cheese scones served with pickles.... More

Visited Bari today upon recommendation from a friend and was very impressed. There is such a wide range of teas which you can smell before you decide which one you will have. Free refill on your coffee and a yummy range of cakes. Service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

As a regular customer, I would recommend Bari Tea Brewery to anyone. Caroline takes her tea seriously, the scones are heaven and there's a real sense of style. Dead canny service, too.

A place to relax experience a variety of teas, with a smelling wall. (You can smell all the teas beforehand.) People eating in, soup and bread or have a take out. Décor excellent and tasteful. The staff were very knowledgeable and gave us good advice. A very enjoyable break on the journey from Ipswich to Edinburgh.
