  • First class service from all staff in this fantastic cafe/restaurant. Served by Emma, who was brilliant with my little dog. Amazing views...A few years ago I remember seeing a picture of the Bass Rock for sale in a gallery in Brighton. It was huge, and had a price tag of £9000! Coming to the Seabird Centre gives you that view for free. It is so impressive, and simply stunning on the rainy day when I visited. I enjoyed my meal watching the light change over the Bass Rock. All brilliant. Clean, friendly staff, dog friendly, amazing views, and a shop with a 7ft high Puffin. North Berwick is blessed to have this treasure of a centre. It is the heart of this blissful little seaside town.
  • Beautiful location on the rocks at North Berwick. We had coffee and scones and choose to sit outside enjoying the sunshine and the sea views out to the Bass Rock. It is of course primarily a seabird education centre but we have yet to venture past the coffee shop.
  • Just gets better year in year out. Great for kids - informative and funny interactive talks from staff and volunteers. Good food and relaxing atmosphere.
  • Great day out ,very informative , lovely staff , café is a bit expensive but has great views
  • Great fun here, better for younger ones I think though... Once they'd had a look through the live cameras & upstairs to look out at the islands using binoculars, it was time to go to shop. Which has a great variety of stuff from £1.50 upwards. Then we had a bite to eat from the Seabird Centre Cafe which was absolutely delicious, same as last year! We had scampi, mmmm & kids eat all of their sausages chips & beans! The Staff here from Shop to Cafe to the Reception where u book Seafari Tickets! were so nice & friendly... Catamaran trip is a must...
