The Cart Shed
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We visit the cart shed regularly and love the place and the food.
Foods good, well presented and value for money
The place itself is in a lovely setting in the middle of the northumberland countryside (what more can you ask for)
Cart shed had a great play area to occupy the kids for a while too
I could think of quite a few restaurants/coffee shops whose staff could take a leaf out of their books and treat their customers as respectfully as the girls in there do.
Recommend without hesitation...

I love The Cart Shed. It is great for the kids. It has an amazing Park which is free to use the café has a massive choice of ice cream and sweets to keep them happy too. The food is great and is all freshly made on the premises. The cakes and scones are so good and HUGE!! There are activities on from time to time such as pottery painting for kids and there are occasional music nights. In general it is a great place to be. Lovely atmosphere and nice friendly staff. It has always been clean and tidy when I have been there. It is worth a visit for sure.

We visited today after hearing good reviews about the play area. We were very disappointed in the visit and didn't stay long. The play area was very good, good quality, things for all ages, even bigger kids, but it was scattered with litter because a waste bin at the entrance was overflowing! The toilets were dirty and there was no atmosphere in the cafe. The place has loads of potential but it was very quiet and you got the feeling the owners had given up and basic things were getting neglected.

My family visited The Cart Shed on a sunny Sunday for a snack and so the children could play. This is a great place, good service, lots to choose from on the menu and superb outdoor play park. We had toasties which came with salad and crisps, these were very tasty packed full of ingredients. The coffee shop inside is welcoming and spacious also offering classes pottery decorating etc. Well worth a visit even if you have no children, maybe for coffee and cake or a delicious ice cream. 10 out of 10

We called in here on Saturday 27th April. Its a really lovely converted barn and the coffee shop was warm and inviting - we had a cheese and pickle baguette (stuffed full of cheese, fresh crusty bread) and a ham and tomato melt pannini. The girls were really friendly and the service was efficient. We had a table in the window in the sun and had a good view of the children's play area. We were fascinated by the equipment and had to have a closer look - it was amazing! Pity we hadn't any children with us. The garden ornaments for sale outside the cafe were good value too. We don't usually travel this way to go to Warkworth, but will do in the future. Definitely worth a detour!
