You must try the restroom at Clifton. Haven't had a bad meal yet and the staff are so friendly. All day breakfasts are great. Desserts are amazing. Ploughmans could be added to but all as sandwiches pannini are gorgeous. Been there about 6 times over the last 2 months!!!!!!

There are very few places in Shields that are dog friendly but don't visit the Clifton for that reason alone! We were all made to feel very welcome (even with two dogs) and the food was really nice. The cakes were excellent and the prices are very good. We'll definitely be back to work through more of the menu.

I went here for afternoon tea with friends. It was very good and value for money. The girl that served us was very pleasant and nothing was a bother. As the place was full we were put in the library room which was very cosy and warm, also private so that was an added benefit. Would definitely recommend and I...
