“Seriously delicious pies”
Review of Vindolanda Cafe

Vindolanda Cafe
Ranked #41 of 120 Restaurants in Hexham
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 May 2018 via mobile

Popped in after visiting the Roman ruins and the excellent museum here. We happened upon this wee cafe and grabbed some drinks and savoury pastries. The sausage roll was delicious and peppery, the chicken and ham pie tasty lots of meat and piping hot. Friendly staff and lovely space outside to enjoy the sunshine and birdsong.

Thank anatomic

We visited the cafe when we were visiting Vindolanda, it has a good choice of food and drinks for both adults and children.

Just had coffee and a delicious hot chocolate which we took onto the terrace to drink. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. They had bird feeders up and a wide array of wild birds came very close to us including a nuthatch. Wonderful.

Thanks for taking time to pen the review.
I agree, that there are few nicer locations to enjoy a hot drink than the terrace at Chesterholm Museum.

Stopped off at the cafe while on a tour of Vindolanda with family. Cold and wet outside, but hot drinks and warm snacks (scones and cream v. nice) boosted energy for the next leg. V. friendly staff.

As this is a museum cafe don't expect haute cuisine, but you will get basic fresh food and a nice cuppa.

Staff were lovely.
