“Gorgeous tea shop with a difference!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I visited this tea house with my partner and friend whilst visiting Northumberland recently having found it highly recommended on Tripadvisor and it most certainly did not disappoint. As a big tea fan this was a wonderful experience. There was a huge variety of tea available and the extensive menu offered a clear description of each tea, along with small jars of the tea leaves available to smell and make an informed decision. The service was fantastic - we were made to feel very welcome and the lady serving us was incredibly enthusiastic about the teas which made the whole experience exciting and unique. Along with our teas we had a homemade scone (grape and cream, although they have different scones and cakes each day). The tea and scone were delicately presented and just delicious. Perhaps one of the nicest things about Bari was the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the feeling that we were welcome...there was no rush to get us out and so we spent a leisurely hour enjoying the whole experience. I highly, highly recommend this to tea lovers. Just note though, this is a tea shop and so the only coffee offered is filter coffee. If you're after fresh coffee, this isn't the place for you. Otherwise though, just perfect for a cuppa!

“Tea with a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We wandered into Bari Tea quite by chance and asked for coffee since our experience of ordering tea previously had been the typical low quality tea bag variety. The very pleasant assistant said that they only served filter coffee since their speciality was tea. We decided to try a Glendale tea and a Darjeeling both of which came in a pot; a 3 minute egg-timer determined when to pour. My partner got 4 cups from the Glendale and I three from the Darjeeling, both superb. We had a large fruit & syrup scone each, freshly made and served with butter and jam. A good chat with the owner of Bari explained why this is the only decent place we have had tea; she is so obviously knowledgeable and concerned with maintaining quality. Our bill came to £8.75: for two scones and 7 cups of tea! I can't recommend Bari too highly. Along with the Castle, this is one part of Alnwick which is unmissable.

“What a find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Whilst on holiday in Alnwick we came across this tea room and cafe and what a good thing we did. The lady was so helpful and knowledgeable about the various teas and the cakes were delicious and all homemade. The soups looked delicious especially combined with the amazing variety of cheese scones and the place was obviously frequented by regular customers and we will be joining them.
