“Lovely place.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We called at the Lighthouse for lunch while on our recent holiday after reading the reviews on here, and were not disappointed. A lovely clean, bright place with a good atmosphere. We had the afternoon tea which was delicious and our four year old son was made very welcome. He was very impressed with the place, especially the gorgeous cakes! We enjoyed it so much we returned on another day and everything was just as good second time around. I would strongly recommend a visit to this place if you are in the area.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Visited this cafe today as I was in Filey and used trip advisor to find a nice cafe. Looks very welcoming from outside and had great reviews so decided to give it a go. Loved the lighthouse theme and the service and atmosphere was fantastic. Had the sunshine special of homemade scone and pot of tea, which was lovely and great value for money. Was also very clean inside and lots of lighthouse memrobelia which was very interesting to look at. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

“The best themed café”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We have been to the Lighthouse many times and, as its name suggests, the interior of the café is themed around everything connected with lighthouses and lighthouse memorabilia. Initially it may sound a bit gimmicky, however it is all done in excellent taste and the décor creates a fantastic seaside ambience. There are photos, models and even gifts of lighthouse related items. The first few times that you go there you will find yourself continually looking around at all of the pictures and models and for me the novelty has never worn off.

In terms of food the standard is every bit as high. The Lighthouse is probably the most expensive of the Filey cafes, but you really do get what you pay for and they are a cut above the rest. Their Afternoon Tea is a great example with a three layer cake tray displaying a mix of sandwiches, a scone with jam and clotted cream and a slice of cake of your choice (per person) – plus a pot of tea. The presentation of everything is superb and there are lots of nice little touches and excellent service from the staff who are always formally dressed. The owners, Paul and Janet, have clearly set very high and distinctive standards for the Lighthouse and anyone who goes there will not be disappointed. A snack or lunch in the Lighthouse will definitely be one of the highlights of any visit to Filey.

“Clean, tasty, friendly and unpretentious.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Just does what it does perfectly. Lots of other places around it that do the usual fast, fatty and unfriendly. The Lighthouse is an ocean of calm. If only we had more of them.
