Improved food and service

We visited this restaurant a year ago, and were somewhat disappointed, especially by the service. This time the service was much better, and the salads were good as well. This was at a time when the inside and outside tables were full most of the time. It may be down to the day you go on, but we... read more

Cannot fault anything about this place. Brilliant food, accommodating staff and fantastic views - what more can anyone ask for.

Situated on the approach to the causeway to Lindisfarne, we were tempted to make a visit ahead of a trip to Bamburgh Castle after picking up one of their leaflets. The coffee shop looks out over the coast and indoors there is a live webcam feed which shows vehicles crossing to and from the island. Immediately greeted and seated without... More

We visited for dinner after spending the day across on Holy Island. The restaurant was full so we were directed to the bar next door- and I'm glad we were! What really made the experience for us was the service, the two waiters were exceptionally friendly, funny and were more than happy to help and answer any questions. The food... More

We had noticed the local advertising, it sounded good, so we decided to meet friends for lunch. On being greeted by our friends to say the restaurant was full and there was no waiting, we were told we could have lunch in the bar next to the restaurant. There was 6 of us and we had to put tables together.... More

I was disappointed with your review and terrible low 2 star rating. You say you were told to go to the Bothy bar as the Restaurant was full. This is often the case at this time of year. We can serve up to 300 meals a day during the season and one of the reasons we decided to have a... More

To be fair we didn't have a meal. However the barman in The Bothy Bar didn't seem at all too interested to see us and the feeling in the main cafe was just clinical. I got the impression of a business simply taking advantage of its location. We went primarily to see the birds of prey. Wish we hadn't. Have... More

I was disappointed by your review. Our new Bothy bar gets great reviews as you will see on here. The coffee shop is clean and modern, but this to you is clinical. I'm not sure what gave you that impression. You didn't stay for a meal which is a shame because if you had, you might not have rated us... More

The scampi was excellent as was the burger. Highly recommended...give it a try you will not be... More

Stopped off after a great day on Holy Island. Very busy but helpful staff found a table even though we only wanted a coffee & snack. Border Tart was very good.

A great place. Good food, excellent service, spacious dining, lots of interesting local produce on offer. The development of the bar (separate from the cafe restaurant) is a lovely addition. Worth a visit in its own right or on the way to Holy Island.
