“Beautiful food and wonderful people.”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

The Coach House tea room is situated in the beautiful and tranquil setting of Elsdon village, Northumberland. It has a lovely picturesque location overlooking the very traditional village green. Once inside the Coach House you will be given a lovely friendly welcome from the owners of the tea room Rita and Alan Colby. The food is absolutely gorgeous and everything is home cooked by Rita, to a very high standard indeed. There is a wonderful selection from savoury pies quiches and soups to a large selection of mouth watering cakes, tray bakes and scones all served with meticulous attention to detail and care. Alan and Rita are always full of fun and joviality and are always a joy to meet. The Coach House is open every day of the week except for a Friday and Monday. There is also a lovely set of gallery rooms upstairs displaying and selling local crafts and art work which is a great added attraction to this very beautiful and quaint tea room.
So, if you’re looking for exceptional quality home cooked food, in lovely surroundings, run by wonderful friendly people who care about their customers, then this is the place to go.
A word of warning. There is another cafe in Elsdon called the "Old School House / Impromptu cafe”. This is only worth a visit if you don't have any taste buds.
I can guarantee once you visit the Coach House you will become a regular visitor.
