I always stop at the Vale when visiting Rothbury, Coffee is always hot and frothy, food usually a full English is well cooked and hot and the cakes are to die for.

Service is friendly.

The Vale Cafe is very traditional and unassuming but the food and service was great.
We stopped for coffee and cakes on chilly afternoon and received a warm welcome.
Prices were very good value and slices of cake were huge.
You don't always need shiny and hipster to have a good cafe experience and The Vale is living proof of this.
The 46 sticker above the door was not lost on us, great play on the names! In fact the mutual love of The Doctor drew us in!

My father and me visited the vale cafe last week and I'm glad to say it back to its usual standards. The cafe was quite full and the food came out fast and was nice and hot. I would definitely recommend this cafe to anyone wanting a quick bite to eat.

We like small local places like this. Normally. Drinks we had were good. Service was the downside unfortunately. Little or no interaction or niceties from staff member who seemed like she was having a bad day. Maybe we caught it at a bad time or just people have things going on, who knows. Can only rate based on our one visit this week.

I was sorry to read this, unfortunately I have just seen this, I’m sure whoever served you was having a bad day but that is certainly no excuse not to be pleasant to all of our customers, I will make sure our staff are aware of your post so they know how important good customer service is! Thank you for your comments in any case.
