Fantastic butties as usual, loads of bacon, sausage and egg for my husband and bacon with tomato and mushroom for me. Beautiful coffee and a good cup of tea. The millionaires shortbread is waiting for a treat later on. A fabulous place to eat with...a walk to Dunstanburgh Castle and poster round craster. Great service with lovely food.More

Fantastic food and welcome again from Andy and Lorna. I brought a friend along who ha d never been up to Northumberland and thought it only right that he was treated to the world famous Auchtermuchty. We have been back home in the North West...for a couple of days now and it’s all he talks about and can’t wait to go back again. In my opinion when in Northumberland Pipers Pitch is a must visit for wonderful tasty food from very friendly hosts. AUCHTERMUCHTY!!!!!!!More

Came back here after 6 years to re-live our first memorable visit. Now much busier than we remember but still the same great tastes and service. I have to have a kipper bun first but then followed by the bacon with haggis. Very filling but...absolute heaven!More

We stopped for breakfast after reading the reviews and weren't disappointed. The bacon rolls were terrific and the Auchtermuchty (bacon and haggis roll) even better - it should definitely be a thing. Decent coffee, very friendly service and all at a very reasonable price. Strongly...recommend it.More

My only regret about this place is that you have to pay to park to visit or I would have been back on my holiday. The service and food are really good; my kids had bacon sarnies which were packed full of thick, delicious bacon...- a real bargain - and the coffee is decent too. The people are friendly and accommodating and it really deserves its ratings.More

We had a Craster Kipper Sandwich, which I have to say was bloomin delicious, would be even more perfect if it had some butter on it, but that's just nit picking, we will definitely be back.
