“Well worth the Walk”

Reviewed 26 June 2018

Stunning setting by the picturesque stream and tame chaffinches, thrushes and blue tits.
Lovely sat on the Italian terrace taking it all in. However, i dont like the clear away your crockery/cutlery signs. This isn't McDonald's and shouldn't be encouraged. Next, you will want me cooking, taking out the rubbish and cleaning the toilets when all i want is a cup of coffee even at your inflated prices.

The cafe is located at the bottom of the Vindolanda site next toteh museum. We went in for a drink and snack before continuing our journey.
Comfortable seating, good service and clean toilets all added to the overall experience.

The cafe is in a beautiful little valley with running stream and very picturesque, but what an access. The walk down is incredibly steep and of course you have to get back up again. I actually walked up backwards, as it hurt my legs due to the steepness. Not really a restaurant but nice cafe with outside space, reasonable prices.

Adjoining, is a shop and interesting Roman museum which is very new. We visited on a lovely day in May, and it was worth the access to spend time just enjoying the surroundings and the Roman exhibits.

Not recommended if you have walking difficulties or are totally unfit.

After a great walk round the site we had lunch in the eatery. More than a café but not a full blown restaurant. Food was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. About £20 for 2 courses & drinks for 2.

We recently stayed in Greenhead for 3 weeks and after joining the Vindolanda Trust visited Vindolanda a number of times, each time dropping into their cafe. While not fine dining, the food on offer was of consistent quality and good value. The service was efficient and there was a good selection to choose from. Would recommend for lunch.
