“We'll meet again...”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lovely 'non-cluttered' spacious well decorated CLASSY interior, nice light & airy atmosphere. Food is a bit pricey but as the saying goes 'you get what you pay for' although the Ploughmans Lunch could have been better than just pickle, salad, cheese 'wedges' & bread; no ham or pork pie etc! Fabulous dessert though! Made a nice change from the normal high street commercialised cafe! Good staff... 7-8/10, we will be back Thankyou... "Fabulous Darling!"

Called in for tea when visiting Barnard Castle. Great atmosphere with great coffee and sandwich. Must mention the young staff who were excellent. Very polite and friendly. Will be back.

“Best Afternoon Tea we've ever had.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We sat down in the wonderfully decorated and situated Clarendons in Barnard Castle near the window, watching the hustle of the market square pass us by. The food was superb - beautiful sandwiches, freshly made scones and homemade cakes. The fact that many of the items had been adjusted to cater for a gluten-free diner, and still tasted so incredible, is a testament to this establishment. The service was attentive and personal- we felt as if we could stay there all day. Couldn't recommend strongly enough!
