Went for lunch with my parents whilst visiting last month. Excellent food and service and most welcoming locals eating there too which is obviously a great sign. Great choice if your walking.

I stopped here to take refuge from the wind and sleet. Thank goodness they were open! The owner was lovely and even heated up our scones. Met a fellow Northern Irelander behind the till. They didn't even mind our soggy coats and muddy boats. Thanks so much!

Warm welcome, good coffee, pleasant decor - and good conversation.

I frequently call here for a drink and a cake when out cycling - it's close to the Reivers Route and not far from Hadrian's Cycle Route

Hello Richard. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, much appreciated.
Just a heads up that as of the 1st November 2017, The Reading Room open from 10.00am until 3,00pm Thursday through to Sunday. These opening hours will take us through until mid December when we will close for the winter. I would very much appreciate it if you would share with your cycling buddies in the hope of avoiding potential disappointment. Many thanks and thank you for your continued support.
Paula.

Found this lovely little cafe slightly off the path of hadrians wall, a perfect rest stop to break up a day of walking!

Very welcoming, friendly staff offering great service. Lovely tea and coffee and a great selection of home made cakes - we shared a bakewell slice which was delicious!

This cafe is well worth a visit especially for walkers, and it is very dog friendly - the didn't even mind the labrador shaped mud patch we left on the floor!
