We popped in today en route to Alnwick and very much enjoyed our lunch. However, I would like to add that it was an absolute privilege and delight to eat the first slice of the first cake ever made by Rachel. Thoroughly recommended and may you continue to bake fine cakes Rachel.

Nice food and friendly atmosphere. All the produce is either sourced locally or made on premise - can't beat it. Staff are run off their feet but do sterling work and deserve a medal for dealing with the customer peaks. Highly recommended as a regular haunt for locals to meet for a chat or visitors to chill out. Best place...

We ended up here looking for breakfast after our own hotel seemed too dodgy to contemplate. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by happy smiling faces and we ordered a full english breakfast. Freshly cooked and absolutely perfectly done. They obviously use excellent ingredients. This place has a bunkhouse which we didnt test but the place seems...

Just popped in for coffee but couldn't resist the cheese scone with bacon. Lots of other nice food on offer. Staff are friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere. Well worth a visit. Always seems very popular.

On a Sunday afternoon run out we ended up in Rothbury. Looking for a quick coffee we came across the Bunkhouse. As it was round closing time there wasn't much left to eat so we decided on the Chocolate Cake, Coffee and Peppermint Tea. All fine. Place was in need of a tidy up but no real complaints. We would...

Having visited this cafe last year on recommendation that they welcomed dogs we naturally headed straight there on our return to Rothbury. What a contrast - last year we were made welcome, our golden retriever was accepted and a drink provided for him whilst we enjoyed the food on offer. This year we were given a rather abrupt response when...

We were a large group who called in for breakfast and all ordered different things and everyone enjoyed everything. The food and service were fantastic. Great food, good portions and lovely people. Although we had breakfast I wished we could stay for morning coffee as the homemade cakes looked so delicious.

Dropped in for a light lunch (the only place we could find in Rothbury that wasn't a pub). Decent selection of sandwiches, light lunches, burgers, soup etc. We had soup and a sandwich which were fine.

We went to this Bike cafe yesterday and not even on bikes it was our 'rest day'! We wanted to watch the Olympic TT and couldn't get a signal on our phones so we're getting pretty desperate ;). The manager and staff could not have done more to help tv on red button to TT excellent cakes, coffee, fab comfy...

For a bunkhouse this is excellent. Very clean and high standard facilities. Comfortable kitchen / sitting area. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely location. Can be difficult to get bikes inside for the night (space for some bikes downstairs, I think unofficially, but otherwise need to get up back staircase to balcony) but given the village I was happy to lock...
