We returned last weekend from a fantastic fortnight self-catering in the superb Northumberland village of Rothbury and so want to share our excellent experiences at the Sun Kitchen Cafe with other visitors coming as first-timers to the area. Having researched the various eating posssibilities beforehand and, having completed the 5 and a bit miles of the 'Above Rothbury' walk on our first day there, we decided to take a look at the various options and finally decided that the Sun Kitchen seemed to fit our needs at the time. I can honestly say that we weren't in any way disappointed. From the moment we arrived, it was warm and cosy and we were made to feel totally welcome. The menu is simple but the food excellent and the friendliness second to none. Main meals are freshly prepared, piping hot with ample portions and they're certainly good value. They also serve a delicious broth full of hearty, chunky vegetables - perfect for a cooler day - plus a good variety of sandwiches and plenty more besides. And don't start me on the cakes and desserts - to die for! There are four different flavours of scones to choose from - all freshly home-baked. Glorious homemade cakes too and the best ever lemon meringue tart and fruit pie or crumble. All are so scrumptious that it's almost impossible to know what you fancy most, believe me! And throughout a visit it's such a sociable little place plus nothing is too much trouble. We loved it so much that we popped in three times and were never disappointed. Why try anywhere else when you're so happily satisfied? We wish them well and long may they thrive and prosper.
