“Why no Tapas?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We visited Bin 21 on Saturday especially for Tapas because we believed that along with the meat
and cheese platters they also served Tapas but apparently not. We were disappointed but had a very nice meat platter instead in pleasant surroundings so the visit was worthwhile but I do feel that the 'Cuisine' on the Trip Advisor should be altered so that customers are not misled.

Thanks for your feedback. My apologies if the Tapas description was misleading. When we originally entered our details onto trip advisor this was the nearest category to our food offering that we could select on the list of food options to put against our details. I will try to amend to have a more accurate description. Thanks for visiting bin21

“Great venue for a party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Bin 21 was the venue last Saturday for a friends 40th birthday. The staff were really helpful, especially as I needed to set a couple of bits up before the party started and nothing was an issue. They stored bags and boxes for us as well as taking everyone's coats which was a great touch. There were about 25 at the party so the size was ideal. We had some nibbles and it all looked very nice, I only had a small piece of the cheese platter but it was lovely. I assume it was local cheese as some looked more interesting than the usual cheese board offerings. The red wine I had was lovely and glasses were very generous. The orange vodka and traditional lemonade were also a hit! All in all I will definitely return and it's the ideal venue if you want a gathering with close friends/family etc. Fab music choice too!

“Good Coffee, Nice views, Pleasant Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

We enjoyed Coffee one morning last week as a result of buying wine in the wine shop on the ground floor. Its a nice little place, enjoying good views of the main street in Morpeth, the coffee is of good quality, and is served with a smile by the pleasant staff. They also do a cheese board, or a cold meats selection, and other options which sound appetising. Of course as well as coffee , wine is also offered on the menu. If your at the south end of Morpeth High Street, then this place is well worth a visit.

Thanks for your positive feedback. You are right..... the window seats upstairs with a view of Morpeth are always the first to be filled. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

“Nice Wine Bar and Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

This small wine bar is a great place to taste the excellent range of wines sold by the independent wine shop below. Snack platters are available including a selection of very local cheeses. Also a good place for coffee and cake
