Visited thia cafe with a friend recently. Coffees and cakes were lovely. Small selection though. Didn't see any savoury food the day we were there. Lovely outdoor courtyard to enjoy the coffee. Secure surrounding for kids.

I visited the Fort and restaurant last year. Very interesting . The guide was fantastic.The restaurant was very simple but nice. Friendly people. I heard that Fort and als the restaurant and other small shops are closed for the rest of this year. Really a pity

This was closed on a Sunday afternoon, no explanation. Looked dilapidated and uncared for. No idea why a sign posted 'attraction' would be so neglected.

Fab little cafe with delicious home made treats.Fantastic brownies and scones .All food homemade and fresh on the premises.You need to have time as the service is slow.....best efforts being made but seemed a bit overwhelmed.Worth a visit for sure.....spoil yourself.

Couldn't agree more with the previous comments, best brownies we ever tasted and the chocolate tiffin was delicious. We also tried the homemade wild mushroom soup and it was to die for. We will definitely be back.

Well worth a visit to put your feet up, following a tour of Duncannon Fort itself. Lovely fresh coffee and home made produce available and at a reasonable price. Well worth a visit!
