This review will be brutal and honest, as seen from my point of view. I used to visit here on a very regular basis, but stopped because the quality of the food and the service became extremely poor. That was some 3 years plus ago,...More

The cups on our tea were so dirty, the tray I wouldn't have let my dogs lick it, corned beef pie resembled a spam fritter, pastry so thick raw. I did not even drink from my cup., I will not be returning.

Called in about 10. 30, quiet when I arrived but busy when I left. Had the standard breakfast and a cup of tea for less than £6. Well cooked and good value , although as usual the sausage could have been of better quality.

Where else on a frosty cold day? Good atmosphere, plenty of choice adults and kids meals and snacks!

Redcar beach can be freezing in later November with a north wind, so Stray Cafe is a welcome bolt-hole. Tea comes in decent mugs and is well brewed, and I had an excellent cheese and mushroom omelette (must have been 4 eggs!), and a nice...More

Over the years I’ve had quite a few breakfasts at the Stray. This was probably the best one yet (although the sausage could be greatly improved). What more could you want, a good breakfast and nice cup of tea, all at a reasonable price.

I have had numerous meals in this cafe and think they do one of the best jumbo breakfasts going. 5* hygiene/cleanliness rating too! The cafe is set on the grass above the beach and has fantastic sea views all the way to Saltburn. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Highly recommended.
