Nestled amongst the charity and discount shops of Clayton Street in Newcastle, the Scrumpy Willow is small establishment with a menu that includes range of good food including vegan and vegetarian dishes.
It is rare to find such a haven away from the bustling streets. Chocked full of period features, the cafe spans two floors and has artwork from students at Newcastle University on the walls. Upstairs, you can watch the world go by through the large ceiling height windows.
Today; I had fair-trade tea, a cheese scone and spiced chocolate cake.
I enjoyed my brief visit to the Scrumpy Willow. The food was good and reasonably priced. The staff were pleasant and provided good service.
