What a great spot. What more could you ask for after a windy walk along the coast to Dunstanburgh Castle. Warm, welcoming and great Crab sandwiches. Friendly staff and quick service ensured that most people could be seated and served. Well worth a stop.

I seem to remember there was a dog inside - they also have an outside seating area which is definitely dog friendly. Enjoy it - it's a lovely cafe.
