Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Second visit recently, great all day breakfast which we had for lunch. Staff are lovely. We got chocolate brownies to take home, yummy 🤤. We’ll be back. No frills, just proper, home cooked to order food.

A perfect place to stop. We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the summer and today the cheese scones and coffee were tasty. The staff are very welcoming. No hesitation in recommending Rochester Relish.

Popped in for a coffee and a scone, which the staff pleasantly provided, even though they were trying to close - they said they had been too busy to take in their OPEN board. Cheese scone was very good. Easy parking. Very friendly staff.

A much need stop from Darlington to Edinburgh. I have used the cafe about 7 years ago maybe more - it was ok then now very good. On the outside a bit unloved but inside had been redecorated. I just had a coffee but took...away a cream scone which was delicious. The other cakes looked good. Someone was eating breakfast and that looked nice as well. The only criticism is the toilet is upstairs and was very 70s could do with a makeover.More

Nice little deli. Great customer service. Dog friendly. Big menu for a cafe in the middle on nowhere- we had steak pasty and chips- very tasty. Good coffee. Not a cheap cafe, but as there was quality food cost was ok.

I came across this lovely cafe as I drove up the A686 from Newcastle to Scotland and it was a perfect place to stop. The coffee was great, I had a lovely steak and ale pasty and they sell other local produce, including shortbread, jams,...relishes and more. The staff were lovely and the service was great. Plus it has the added benefit of being the last cafe in England!! If you’re travelling on the A686, make sure you stop at Rochester Relish for a coffee or a meal - it’s highly recommended.More

Fabulously friendly welcome when we arrived. We were more than pleasantly surprised at how vegan friendly the cafe was with the team being able to advise on a number of vegan options. We all enjoyed what we ordered including vegan hot chocolate, the “best jacket...potato ever” (according to my daughter) and some of the best vegan sausage barms that my husband and I have had.More

Beautiful fresh cooked breakfast. Friendly staff, tasty filling breakfast and also dog friendly. We also took some home cooked baked items away for the car journey home. Would definitely call back again if we were that way. Unfortunately we were on our way back from...Scotland and we don’t live anywhere near 😭More

En route home from Edinburgh, we opted to travel via the A68. We drove for what seemed like miles without sight of a cafe, restaurant or pub. Then as luck would have it, Rochester Relish came into sight! Boy, what a lovely little place this...is. Run by a husband and wife team who clearly take great pride in producing top quality food at very reasonable prices. Home made soup was delicious, but the classic cheese burger with chips (proper home made chips) was outstanding. I can’t remember the last time I got proper, real, home made chips in a cafe in the UK. Do yourself a favour if you’re travelling up or down the A68, stop at the Rochester Relish Cafe.More

We have dropped into this cafe a few times recently . We previously had been here back in 2015 and it was ok ,more like a transport cafe so just drove by it one our trips up and down the A68. We decided to give...it another go late last year and glad we did as it had been taken over by a couple . It's is now a very nice place to stop and eat or even just have a quick drink and snack . We have now been 4 times in less than a year and would highly recommend having now sampled different food and cakes . The breakfast and soup are excellent . Hoping to try the fish and chips next time we passMore

We stumbled upon this cafe for lunch having driven 6 hours on our way to holiday in Scotland. What a find! The lady who served us was very welcoming and friendly plus accommodating towards our two children. Food was all freshly cooked but service was...also prompt. Burgers were huge and the pea and mint soup was delicious. All this plus absolutely beautiful views over Northumbria. Would highly recommend!More
