“An unexpected little gem”
Review of The Scypen Cafe

The Scypen Cafe
Ranked #3 of 5 Restaurants in Gilsland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 July 2019

Found this place on trip advisor while driving along the A69.just a few miles north to Gilsland its a converted cow byer now a lovely little organic cafe run by a mother and daughter. All home cooked. Would recommend the vegan Thai curry and veggie lasagne really delicious. We sat upstairs on the mezzanine snug with lovely views across the fields towards Hadrian's wall. We were too late in the afternoon to to sample the cakes (they'd all gone!) but will definitely go back.

The two ladies who run The Scypen - and their massive fuzzball Bjorn - greeted us warmly as we arrived on a scorching day roaming the Roman remains nearby. Friendly service and good food, with a wide range of vegan and vegetarian options, and a remarkably low final tally.

This is a brilliant cafe on an organic dairy farm. They serve amazing cheese made on the farm and raw milk. We had sandwiches, soup and the children had beans and cheese on toast, all delicious.

The hot chocolate is something else!

Highly recommended!

This wonderful little restaurant just outside of Gilsland off the A69 at slack house farm, near to Birdoswad, serves superb organic food and a wide range of herbal teas, home made scones, cakes and sumptuous lite fluffy lemon Swiss roll with whipped cream on the side.

The food here has to be experienced in order to fully appreciate the wholesome content and mouth watering flavours.

The breads are baked on site with organic ingredients and the organic cheese also is produced on site.
If your a lover of superb food and great company, then you will find a welcome and an experience to take away and savour for a while.
Your met with a smile and a heart warming AGA cooker, Joy and Bryoni use to cook there preparations.
Highly Recommend a visit, don’t be in a hurry Bryoni has some great stories to tell.
Truly entertaining.
