A lovely tea room in a quaint little seaside town! The staff service was excellent and they had a generous selection of delicious treats to sample ☕️🍰 Would highly recommend their "all in" hot chocolate with any slice of cake! We loved it so much that we went to sample their delights twice whilst on our weekend visit to the... More

We always head to the Lighthouse when in Filey and was pleasantly surprised to see it open on a Sunday, it was quite busy but we managed to get a table, we only had hot drinks and a toasted teacake but it was served to the usual high standard and very enjoyable.

What a find! This place is lovely. Staff are super friendly and nothing is too much trouble... I had a Ham and Cheese toastie and my partner had scrambled eggs on toast, both were really tasty and reasonably priced. Feeling a little disappointed that we forgot to try the famous scones after reading other reviews :( However we will be... More

For those visiting Filey, the Lighthouse has reopened after its usual winter break, but under new management. It's good to see the young couple who have taken over, are maintaining the high standard set by the previous owner, who has retired. In addition to last years menu, they are adding new things, their bacon, brie, and cranberry baguette is delicious.... More

Like many others this time of the year taking a morning walk in Filey, my wife and myself sought refuge from the bracing sea breeze in which to have a hot drink. We came across the Lighthouse and entered even though there were no customers inside the premises at that time. The place was warm, clean and bright and welcoming.... More

Called in today for a coffee, our first visit since the tea room opened this season. A lovely young couple are now running it, and maintaining the high standard that it has always had. Coffee was wonderful and the chocolate cake was lovely and moist. The menu looked very inviting too. An absolute must for anyone visiting Filey .. and... More

Stopped in here for a cup of tea and a scone to warm up after a blustery walk round Filey. The home made scones and jam where delicious. Great service too in this quaint little seaside tea shop.
