After reading reviews about this cafe I wanted to try it, how disappointed we were. Not the surroundings or decor, I think it could be a great place, but stale goods is inexcusable. It was only 11am so why was the coffee & walnut cake hard on the outside and dry inside? The freshly baked scones weren’t freshly baked! Please please please do as you say freshly baked produce should be fresh & exciting. A very disappointing visit, unlike the heritage centre next door.

Great service in an unusual location

This is a great place for both food and service - and the location in old railway carriages just adds to the fun. "Old" is all relative as the seats and tables are all refurbished and very comfortable. And the staff are all lovely people with real pride in their work.

Unique tea rooms

Delicious food served in old railway carriages. Staff very friendly. We visited a few times during our two week local holiday, for coffee, lunch, Sunday roast dinner and afternoon tea.....all were excellent.

Nice , Friendly Tea Room

Gordon H, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We'd drove past here a few times on our way to and back from Kielder and decided to call in today, Based in ex-railway Carriages (Ex Southern Electrical Multiple Unit i believe ) it is very light and airy , we went for toasties with Tea/coffee and Fresh Scones with Jam and cream . The toastie was delicious and served with Coleslaw , a small salad and crisps and was extremely tasty , The Scone was lovely and light . The Staff very pleasant and very friendly , altogether a very enjoyable experience and we will be returning for the delicious looking Afternoon Tea !

Great find

Found this tearoom just by chance. We had soup and sandwiches which were first class. Lovely setting in old railway carriages. Service was excellent. Not to be missed.
