“A must try place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

This little cafe never fails, from the place being clean and tidy, to the excellent food served and all dished up with wonderful banter from the owner. We come every year on our visit to filey and have to have lunch at the Pines. Really enjoyed our meal and tea yet again. Thank you.

“Best breakfast in filey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Visit this annually, when in filey. Fantastic breakfast, super service, always good banter. When I move here will be hard to stay away and keep the Wight down. Try it you won't be disappointed.

My mother lives in filey and as part of my monthly visits we always visit the pines. Great wholesome home made food and fantastic service and banter from the front of house Malcolm. A real gem

“good coffee stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We only live down the road from Filey yet this was our first vist, after a very long wait at the Post Office we were in need of a drink.
We usually go to a place one street across from the Post Office, but as we passed the end of the first street we noticed The Pines, so gave it a try.
We only had coffee which was very good, served by a very friendly man, he offered us newspapers and gave us very informative leaflets on Filey with an excellent street map in it.
The menue looks very tempting, all homemaid dishes.
A slight minus point, I went to the toilet (quite small, the toilet not me) reached by quite a steep staircase, when I returned down stairs, the stair rail does't start high enough and therefore is quite dangerous.

“Good food with wholesome entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

By accident we stumbled on the Pines Coffee Lounge and Diner in Filey. It's set back off the main road, just round the corner from the post office. But, boy, so worth a visit. Malcolm, yes Malcolm the owner and front of house should be on the stage. The short one liners started from when we first entered and didn't stop all the way through. For those of us who took him on he loved it and obviously thrives off the banter. My wife was in stitches and the poor folk who asked for four toasted teacakes and as he sets about confirming they want 4 toasted teacakes each for the four people just seated and the good honest humor that continued from the tea cake saga. Could have stayed there all day. Malcolm you're a star. Oh, guess better mention the food! BRILL. Everything we saw being served was freshly cooked and well presented and at a good price. Would recommend a visit not only for the food but to witness Malcolm in action. Be mindful, it's not a huge place and was busy when we went, but worth taking a few steps from the main street for and we will certainly be back on our next Filey visit. Well done Malcolm and Margaret.
