Dropped in here on our way to Bamburgh for a much-needed refreshment break. It was mid-afternoon, mid-week and the place was busy - obviously popular with locals. We ordered drinks and a toasted sandwich and they arrived very quickly. The sandwich came with lots of salad; the owners were keen to accommodate what we wanted and the tea and coffee... More

Popped in on a recent trip to Alnwick for hot chocolate on a cold day. Cafe itself appeared fine, and everything seemed in order. We were more than satisfied with our drinks, and thought they were reasonably priced. Can't comment on the food as we didn't sample any, but must say, the cakes looked really good.

Extremely filthy throughout. Lots of clutter everywhere that was also very, very dirty and dusty. Disgusting toilets. The whole place is in need of a massive deep clean. Dirty crockery on most tables when staff stood about doing nothing. Had to ask for our table to be wiped as had not previously been done. Wiped with a cold dirty cloth.... More

Ate here twice, especially because of the coffee. Had a salad once, a pastry once, both were fast, fresh, very tasty. Highly recommended.

We come to Bailey's every time we are on holiday in Northumberland and we are never disappointed. It's always very busy and sometimes difficult to get a table but it is worth the wait. Try the afternoon tea s or just the sandwich and fruit scone. They are delicious. Got to know the staff and they are friendly and most... More
