Coffee Shop


imageThe Bistro/Coffee Shop is the key ingredient to our Old Dairy concept.   Without it there would be no proper feel-good factor.   For example our coffee is second to none.   It is sourced by a small Edinburgh based company called Artisan Roast who are, quite simply coffee purists.  They have trained us in the delicate art of making and serving coffee from an espresso machine, so as trained baristas who care passionately about serving the best cup of coffee you will taste for miles around, coffee is our first priority.

Then come the cakes, scones, bread, pies and soups that we make fresh every day in our AGA cooker in the kitchen.  Let’s begin with cheese scones to live for!   Our customers tell us they are the best they have ever tasted.  Blueberry scones are popular too along with a rich,  chocolate cake, New York cheesecake, Victoria sponge and black magic – a wonderful cake made with almonds, no flour, dark chocolate, polenta and blackcurrants.

Ham and egg picnic pies and wood pigeon pies are a speciality, while our soups can be a full on vegetable or a more delicate sweet potato and coconut.

We have another secret weapon.  A champagne bar which looks out on one of the most gorgeous views in Northumberland – straight over Glendale to the Cheviot Hills.  A glass of fizz tastes rather special from here.


As we announced on our NEWS page, from 16th May 2017 the Coffee Shop/Bistro will be open at weekends only.
