a hidden gem for coffee

This is a pleasant coffee shop with seating inside and out but it is also a gift shop full of individual and numerous crafts, photo frames, wooden signs with canny sayings on. Lots to look at. Coffee good and it has a couple of gluten free items as well as homemade cakes.

Noticed this place as I was driving passed earlier in the day and had seen the signs nearby. Lovely little shop and tea room with a couple of tables outside I just had tea and a slice of home made cake which was lovely. The menu was fault limited but some interesting cake choices e.g Chocolate and Beetroot slice and... More

My wife and i visited here recently for a coffee stop.There are some nice gift ideas and the setting is quite nice.However there are only two tables and neither of us found the cakes anything special.Coffee was good. You cannot call this a restaurant however so just be aware cakes is what is on offer,nothing else.

This is not a restaurant! Our second visit (the first was about four years ago). I'd describe it as an "up market" giftshop, with coffee, teas and cake available. It wouldn't look out of place in a posh part of London. Lots of little and not so little things to buy, but don't expect "bargain basement" prices. Hard to judge... More

Very disappointed after reading all these good reviews. In fairness we didn't stay to have coffee as planned - but the gift shop was very small and extremely expensive. But the 2 pigs outside are delightful!

A welcome tea room on the walk back to the local camp-site. Tiny space inside the gift shop for tea and cake and relies for capacity on the weather being kind enough to enable the outdoor space to be used.

Its not a restaurant but TA does not offer the 'refreshments and quality gifts' option. We had passed this delightful stopping place several times in our week in Northumberland but always after closing. This day seeing it open, took a look and were captured by its 'slogan' Coffee, Cakes and Gorgeous Things. Hits the spot. One of several highlights of... More

Eleanor's Byre is a delightful little gift shop that also serves coffee, tea & cake. Although this is really lovely, any one expecting a restaurant will be disappointed. Worth a visit everyday of the week as many different, gorgeous home made cakes. And of course...lots of gorgeous things to buy!

Coffee is second to none, cakes have wonderful flavours, and gift shop is quirky and unique. The location is idyllic......there's a lovely terrace to enjoy in good weather, with two friendly pigs for company! Attention to detail in customer facillities and service is excellent. A lovely way to spend an hour on a sunny afternoon. Thank you!

Lovely location to sit outside in nice weather, and amazing coffee and cake. Having met the owner I understand that Eleanor's byre's main business is the gift shop, which is fabulous with lots of delightful and stylish bits ranging from cusions and candles to mugs and cutlery. I'm sure you can fine something for anyone.
