I have never had to or been as disappointed in having to walk out of a café. I duly complied and sat through the back where dogs are allowed. Having requested to sit elsewhere due to customers unruly children's behaviour, I suggested a seat remaining out of the way of others, albeit there was nobody else seated within the main... More

Lovely homely cafe which is a lot bigger than you think with a large heated room out the back. Always a favourite with our family, whenever we are in Morpeth we always eat here because it is so consistently good. The homemade soup is delicious, and the sandwiches are freshly prepared. Staff are very cheery and efficient, and don't get... More

I cant help but go to this gorgeous cafe. The choice of at least 8 cakes makes it so hard to choose. We had a symphony of cake, which meant we could have a try of 4 different cakes. All of which were faultless! As they are all homemade the staff knew which ones were ok for my friend who... More

I have eaten here a few times and have enjoyed lunch and breakfast but mostly visit for the delicious cakes and scones. Nice covered conservatory type area at the back. Would highly recommend.

I usually really like this place but was disappointed on my recent visit. I wanted a light vegan lunch but my only option was jacket potato and beans. Mediterranean veggies on a wrap wouldn't be hard to provide or some sort of humous, either would have been lovely. Pity. On another animal free day I will have to be elsewhere.

Hi janoliNorthumberland Thanks for your review. I can only apologise that you were not offered more choice. I was not in on the day you came/reviewed, and as we always have a vegetarian soup and salads you should have been offered more choice, even if they are not on the menu we do try to accommodate as best we can....

Fed the ducks and gulls of Morpeth before stopping here for a light luncheon and a warming drink. Staff very friendly, the cafe is very clean and the food was homely and delicious. We both had soup (sweat potato and a ham broth) and a magnificent homemade scone each. Mam had a pot of tea and I went for a... More
