Good Apple pie!

Travelling through Alnwick I almost decided on a boring visit to Costa coffee, but a little further down the path Bailey's stands on the corner of two roads. Inside there is a whole bunch of stuff on the wall, making it feel the place has some character to it. We decided on Apple pie which was... read more

If only I could select zero stars. We visited Bailey's Cafe on a Saturday morning. There was 6 of us, we all ordered the big breakfast with tea or coffee.

Had a coffee here three years ago and remembered how friendly the staff are. Nothing had changed! Arrived just before closing but not a problem and bewildered by choice of cakes.Lovely

Bailey's Cafe is in the centre of Alnwick and is a cosy, yet quirky place to have lunch or a tea break from sightseeing. We had the soup and sandwich option which was good value, we felt. The pea and ham soup was the best I had tasted. Service is fast and staff are friendly and efficient. Only reservation is... More

A visit to Alnwick wouldn't be complete without a bit of lunch at Bailey's. The food is lovely and staff friendly.

We just popped in for coffee, cakes and ice cream. We were late in the day so we didn't expect a welcome but they were friendly and welcoming despite being busy cleaning out a large display fridge. We selected schmoo's which were fancy milkshakes and very tasty, cakes, the date slice is amazing and ice cream. We also had coffee's... More

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
