Great cafe in an interesting shop! Lots of lovely cake and scones plus great coffee. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hard not to buy something from the exciting collection of vintage and nostalgia ephemera.

A quaint cafe within a gift/antique shop. Lovely freshly prepared food and drinks in a calm relaxing atmosphere. Owners were friendly and welcoming and engaged in conversation. Reasonably priced, dog friendly for those with pets. Well worth a visit, I personally would go again and would highly recommend.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We have chosen to have a limited menu so that we can prepare everything from fresh. Mrs Posh does the home baking, who knew that GCSE in Domestic Science would be so useful! More

After a walk taking in Arnside Knott, via Silverdale, we gathered at Posh Sardine for afternoon tea. There were 10 of us and the proprietors made us very welcome. There is an excellent choice of cakes, scones, snacks etc., including delicious crepes, which appear to be a speciality of the house. I had coffee and walnut cake, which was superb,... More

Popped in to warm up after a run about on the beach with our toddler. Made super welcome and when our toddler became a little restless and wanted to go before we'd finished our pot of tea he was given some ice cream on the house! Owner says he often does it to make sure parents can relax and finish... More

It was lovely to meet you and your son, who was very well behaved and a real cutie! Can you tell that Stephen is a retired teacher???

called in here on Sat. 14th Jan I can honestly say I was less than impressed. First of all the seating area is very small and worse of all because the owners have a dog that is allowed to roam about and scavenge at tables other people are allowed to take dogs in. When I was in on Sat. the... More

We are sorry to hear that you were less than impressed by your visit on Saturday and the fact that Teddy was in the shop. There is a sign on the window, with a photo of Teddy, that dogs are welcome and as a large number of visitors to Arnside are dog walkers we have found this approach more than... More

I've been here a couple of times with my mum who visited from Kent. She has now decided this is her favourite tearoom/craft shop in her favourite seaside town. Posh Sardine is a charming place to have a cup of tea and bite to eat and the couple who own it are utterly delightful and most welcoming.

Lovely reception and the coffee is delicious and priced well. The waitress was most helpful The place itself is a lovely area to look around with many wonderful articles to purchase no pressure is put upon you to buy but comments are made from the staff which are very helpful.
