At last a smile...

Having visited the Tea & Tipple on many occasions and having written about the poor level of service competing with the excellent food, we tried it again and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a smile and an upbeat good morning rather than the miserable grunt on many previous occasions!

Found this little gem of a tearoom whilst killing time waiting in village for my car being serviced. Delicious coffee and some very tempting scones and cakes on display. Staff were friendly and I was given a free top up of coffee. The shop is clean and well presented. Can't fault this lovely little shop situated in the centre of... More

Visited twice - each time we got horribly burnt coffee with over boiled milk. By the second time - we really thought we better say something (we run a coffee shop back home so we're not completely clueless). They didn't seem to care. They get an extra star for being open when so many of Corbridge's coffee shops seem to... More

A small but very good cafe in Corbridge. Light lunches or snacks. Very good coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. Set in the Market Place in Corbridge, the Tea and Tipple is well worth a visit,

Having caught the waitress/other staff eye to order I was completely ignored at least three times until I got up ready to walk out as two other customers did. Completely indifferent to their customers. Even coffee was poured without looking so slopped in saucer. This is the third unfriendly visit experienced here with no improvement, will not be giving custom... More

Nice place for a slice of cake and a cuppa. The staff haven't got great customer care skills, however, they seemed happy to talk to each other, as a result the place lacks a warming atmosphere. Bad vibes.

Have been visiting this cafe for several years and always found it to be an inviting establishment; today they appear to have a new waitress who was somewhat abrupt and not at all welcoming.

I really think there is a lack of enthusiasm from the staff, not a single smile so not a single tip. Food was good but the lack of service with a smile ruined the experience. It wasn't that busy and I have heard this (and read other reviews) to the same extent. I don't want this to be a negative... More

This cafe is located in the centre of Corbridge and welcomes all ages of children as well as adults. There are newspapers available to read and the coffee is delicious as are the scones!! It's a very uncluttered cafe with a choice of soft or hard seating and very friendly staff.

We went for a light lunch. The waitress didn't offer us a menu, she just said "what do you want". With bad grace she fetched us a list of salads and sandwiches - just one between the four of us. And stood there sighing while we decided what to eat. I had a delicious goats cheese salad and by the... More
