This is a quality gallery, beautifully displayed artwork in a light filled space. Interesting small gifts and jewellery add to the browsing opportunities. Some of the painting make you think of summer despite the weather! The food is creative and different to the usual offerings. The homemade almond slice is to die for....coffee is great too. Definitely the place I will head for when in Rothbury.

It was so refreshing to find a cafe at lunchtime that had no toasties or baked potatoes! Fab little menu...gorgeous coffee, home made soup and bread and cakes! Lovely environment with many pieces of artwork to gaze at.

The Congregational lacks atmosphere, it's a bit like sitting in a public library,so quiet that you are frightened to speak! It is also over priced for what you get. Not the best the area has to offer.The art work is Ok but again very expensive. It could be better.

We stumbled on this art gallery and cafe at the top end of the high street in Rothbury on recommendation from our guest house host. It is a combination of gallery space and tea shop. We browsed the pictures - many were of local scenes and some really good quality paintings at that - before settling down to a refreshing coffee and tea and lovely home-made scone and jam. Lovely. And the young man (sorry - didn't catch your name!) was chatty and helpful with details about his pictures and the overall gallery. He has some signs outside but unless you walk up the high street to the top end of town you'll probably miss it. Well worth supporting this interesting venture - and there is a good selection of specialist teas and coffees too.
