Probably the most scenic tearoom in the world.

Barrowburn is one of those places that, when you're sitting eating your bacon sarnie and drinking a hot cuppa looking out over the rolling Northumberland hills, you wonder how you never managed to make it here before now.

Best bacon butty I have had in a long time, a substantial pot of tea and a wonderful friendly welcome, the home made cakes and soup are also recommended.

Fabulous food and set in a magical area of the Upper Coquet Valley. The food is brilliant and huge portions are welcome after day in the hills. The owner of the tearoom is Eunice Tait and she is just the loveliest lady you could wish to meet. Sit with a lovely bacon and brie ciabatta, a big mug of tea... More

Back to beautiful Barrowburn Farm Tea Room today. Excellent food and excellent service as always. A full English breakfast which would make a king happy and a wonderful home made lemon meringue pie to die for. The icing on the cake, as always, the nicest family you could ever wish to meet who run the tea room the lovey Taits.... More

Another visit to Barrowburn this week, our first proper walk this year. Snow still on the tops so walking very claggy but we managed a four mile hike up from Buckram's Bridge onto Lamb Hill back down to Blindburn -the names are actually the give away, this is isolated drover country on the Borders. Four of the country's cleanest rivers... More

In delightful place with stunning views. Owners very welcoming and friendly. Roaring fire going, and seemed really busy. Nice pot of hot tea but unfortunately cake was a bit dry. We will go back but hope food will be a bit nicer.

Unless you happen to be heading for a walk in the upper Coquet Valley or heading for the tearoom because a friend told you it was there it is highly unlikely you would stumble on this tearoom by chance! Its a gem of a place set in stunning scenery. Nowt flash - just good basic food, a real fire to... More

After a hard walk or gentle meander do call in - no frills, outside loo, limited parking, BUT, huge teapot of first rate tea, cold drinks, CAKE ETC! Delicious! Lovely people running the tearoom, as well as their farm. Do check opening times before going as it is a long way back to Alwinton if closed!
