“Wonderful!”

What a wonderful place! I rarely have such trouble making a decision about what to eat! Had to ask the girl serving us to help when I narrowed it down to 2 options and boy did she make a good choice. Pastry roll filled with spinach and squash and other veggies - delicious! The salads all look incredible and I opted for the tomato and pepper plus the pea, mint courgette. Really friendly and helpful staff, incredible fresh food and beautiful gifts. Will definitely be back!

A great place to stop off on the A1 north of Alnwick, Look out for the Carnabys signs as its literally yards from the A1, lovely and airy and spotlessly clean. Great choice of fresh food to cover all appetites. Not the cheapest but quality and freshness is well worth paying for.

So easy to park too and a nice break from driving - everything reguar service stations are not. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend and have told a few friends travelling north about this.

Food is top notch, it is pricy but get what you pay for. Excellent coffee, brownies and sausage rolls. The staff need to cheer up, a bright smile, some real customer service- I bet there tips would go up too.

Love the gift shop, we need a few more under £15.00 purchases, but other than that, nice choice.

We visited Carnaby's on a few occasions during a stay nearby. The first time, the service was excellent as was the choice of food. Unfortunately, however, on subsequent occasions, we were 'greeted' by a rude and off-hand woman, who was brusque and not at all helpful, and gave us very small portions (at full cost) of dishes that were on display as available, but nearly finished. Such a shame as this is a light, airy and open cafe, with great potential. Shape up with the customer service and you'll do wonders!
