We'd visited before and we were certainly not going to Rothbury without visiting again. Even in these austere times it had a good flow of customers in and out, all seemingly happy with their lot.
It is an eating experience in this great little tea room/cafe. The menu is full of wonderful choices from speciality teas and coffees to gorgeous homemade cakes, via Thai fishcakes, gammon steaks and salads. I daren't list everything on offer - I'll be here all week!
The gift shop within the tea room has a good range of items and I really wish Vicky would stop selling jewelry - well, my bank manger would like it. She has extended her ranges on offer and the prices will suit everybody. I bought a beautiful peacock bracelet, much admired by friends and family here at home, and a lovely vase. I would have bought a larger, floor standing vase but the thought of our border collie wiping it out with his tail and turning it in to mosaic was not a pretty picture in my mind.
This is a very successful family business. The teamwork shows. Ron, Cath and Vicky use their individual strengths to ensure you will never forget your visit. Cath is a fantastic cook and Ron and Vicky take and deliver customer orders in a very friendly and hospitable way. Nothing seems too much, which in this day and age is wonderful to see.
We love going back to Harleys. We went both at the beginning and end of our holiday this time, and there is no doubt we will be going back again when we visit Rothbury again.
Thank you for being such caring hosts. See you again. XXXXX
