    Always a warm welcome
    A warm welcome is always awaiting at the cafe at the honey farm. The staff are so friendly especially the owner. Cakes are delightful and always fresh and sandwiches are well priced and delicious. Can't find any fault at all here. Quirky bus but also there's plenty of seating outdoors and some with shelter too. Reasonable pricing. A visit to Northumberland isn't complete without a trip to the Honey Farm. This is my 3rd visit this year.

    Lovely wee place for a visit
    Lovely wee place to stop off for a while at. The visitor centre is upstairs but ramped to accommodate prams/buggies/wheelchairs/mobility aids. Wealth of detailed info, a wildlife photography exhibition was a pleasant surprise and lots of nice things to purchase. It’s a short walk to the Union Chain Bridge which we did so went between Scotland and England! Didn’t use toilets but seen available and additional toilet provision was signed. The cafe is a delight. Lovely sandwiches, delicious cakes and yummy ice cream. We sat outside and tables have nice little touches like blankets over chairs if it’s chilly plus jars with fresh flowers. Also lots of diff types of tables in different areas to choose from. There was a fenced in area with kids tractor/truck toys, playhouse, etc. that our 6yo played in for a while. Bee garden was in full bloom for a walk. Was only 10mins from Berwick and road access was fine/easy. Absolutely worth a visit: wee hidden gem!

    A super place to spend a couple of hours.
    A great place to visit on your Northumbrian holiday. There’s an amazing museum of vintage mainly agricultural vehicles spread around the farm and an extensive and informative visitor centre which includes a functioning beehive behind glass and many other interesting displays too. There’s also a open air children’s play area and to top it all, an excellent cafe based in a double decker bus which sells very tasty drinks, yummy cakes and honey products as well. It also has scrupulously clean loos. As a bonus, it’s only a five minute stroll to the newly refurbished 200 year old Union Chain Bridge which links England to Scotland. All very well worth a visit!

    Plenty of interest
    Plenty of interest about bees, honey and the local area at the visitor centre. The cafe is in a quirky double-decker bus and there is a dedicated play area for young children. There's also a lovely garden with insect-friendly plants, with 2 arbours dedicated to Kath, its creator.

    Well worth a visit
    Lovely hidden gem , beautiful cakes in the double decker bus served by friendly staff. Interesting museum to look around and a delightful honey shop with samples with a very pleasant lady serving . Great interesting museum to look around outside with old cars and farming equipment. A short walk down the hill brings you to the union bridge . Well worth a visit

    Cake and coffee stop.
    We were cycling in the area when we stopped at chain Bridge Honey farm for cake and coffee. You can sit on the double decker bus, which is looking a bit tired compared to previous visits,but we sat at a table alongside it. I chose honeycake which was lovely and my husband had coffee and walnut cake which he enjoyed. The coffee was lovely and strong and the atmosphere was chilled but I have to mention the coffee was served in a takeaway cup and the cakes in cardboard trays with wooden forks, which kind of spoilt it slightly, I struggled with the wooden fork and it took the enjoyment away from eating the cake!!!

    Favourite vintage double decker bus cafe within the Honey Farm and walking distance from the Union Chain Bridge and
    I love this quirky cafe within and without a vintage double decker bus at the Honey Farm - all baked products are of an exceptionally high standard; my favourites being the honey cake (slathered with buttercream) and the cheesiest of cheese scones. Excellent coffee (I enjoyed a honey latte) served with a friendly smile and light chat. Efficient, great value, homemade and fine! A "must visit".

    Great family experience
    This was a great place for a family visit. Lovely bee garden and visitor centre which is free to enter and very informative. We would have liked to try the vintage bus cafe there but it was closed on the day we visited. We came away from the shop with delicious honey and honey mustard. The Union chain bridge is just a short walk down the road and worth a stroll across the border to Scotland.

Great place to visit whilst in the Scottish Borders. Informative museum and nice little shop. Great cafe on the green bus, serving homemade produce- much of which contained the farm’s honey. We had a lovely walk down to the recently renovated chain bridge, which topped off a lovely visit.

We appreciated getting back onto the Honey Farm site. Previously we’ve enjoyed having lunch served from the double decker bus. Whilst this is currently not possible they appear to be serving snacks. It was very interesting looking at the tractors and agricultural equipment on site. We hope the cafe bus experience can be resumed sometime in the future.

It was a glorious day and we sat outside the double decker bus cafe and enjoyed our sandwich and delicious homemade cake. The coffee was excellent. There is a fabulous selection of cakes to choose from, it was hard to decide. We went to the visitor centre and watched the bees and bought some honey and soap. The lady serving was lovely and very informative and helpful. We then had a walk through the bee garden which was in full bloom and a lovely peaceful place to enjoy. A short distance away is the newly renovated Union Chain Bridge which is a spectacular site, such a feat of engineering and a lovely place to admire the views of the river Rweed

Actually part honey farm, part museum. Lots of old tractors/machinery in the process of being renovated, also a small museum display of old items & newspapers. Lovely walk through the garden where bees are kept. We parked at Paxton House and walked along the river and over the chain bridge, so good circular trip. Small cafe in an old bus serving tea & snacks. Visitor's centre and shop where you can buy local honey and honey-products.

It's been several years since we visited the Honey Farm and it's got even better, we stayed much longer than we'd planned! The bees and honey exhibition was very informative and well presented and we bought most of our gifts for friends at home in the shop. The bee garden was absolutely beautiful and expertly tended: one of the best flower gardens we've seen. We had coffee and later on a sandwich at the Bus Cafe, everything was great and excellent value. The service was outstanding. We really enjoyed the museum (lots to see) and the vintage commercial vehicles. Everyone we met was really friendly and had time to chat. And it's all free!! (we did make a voluntary donation as we enjoyed it so much.) A lovely visit.

This is a must to visit it so interesting. There is a little shop a you arrived. The exhibition on bees is spell binding. Information about the Union Chain bridge. There is a cafe but not open every day in a bit red bus and outdoors is an interesting garden walk with the flowers that the bees like.

So glad we found this lovely place. Friendly staff, interesting exhibitions, fantastic cafe in an old bus and a well stocked and reasonably priced shop.
We learned a lot about bees and the history of the chain Bridge and bought some treats from the shop to remember our visit. The vintage vehicles and museum were a bonus, as was the beautiful bee garden. Thank you for keeping this attraction free of charge, it made us much more inclined to spend our money in the shop and cafe.

Visited in Aug, Sept and Nov 2019. Hubby enjoyed looking around all the old machinery and I enjoyed learning about bees and tasting the different types of honey. When we took the kids they loved having a snack in the double decker bus and walking down to the chain bridge. A great little trip to somewhere a bit different!
