Hextol Tans cafe

Hexham's only dedicated vegetarian & vegan café

Located in the picturesque area of St Mary's Chare just off the Market Place, The Hextol Tans is Hexham's only exclusively vegetarian and vegan cafe. Come inside and enjoy freshly prepared food in the calm interior or take a seat outside and watch the world go by! As well as vegetarian and vegan cuisine, we offer gluten free options as well as lighter bites for smaller appetites.

Well behaved dogs are welcome - your four legged friends can join you and enjoy a complimentary biscuit!

We're always very mindful of the lack of choice on offer for vegetarians and vegans. We serve a varied selection of dishes which are inspired by cuisine from around the world.

Browse through our set menu or maybe try one of our daily specials which are displayed on the board in the cafe. There's a delicious array of cakes, bakes, soups and of course our famous scones!

As we're part of The Hextol Foundation - a registered charity - we sometimes hold fundraising evenings. Please click here for details of our latest events.

A cafe with a social purpose

Our team in the cafe really sets us apart. As an integral part of The Hextol Foundation, we provide supported work placements for people with learning difficulties or mental health problems, or sometimes a combination of both conditions. The Hextol Foundation took over the running of the Tans in 2016, immediately making improvements to the menu. We have gathered momentum since then and have many regular customers.

Quality that speaks for itself

Don't just take our word for it, browse through our most recent Tripadvisor reviews. We're very proud of our five bubble rating, which is testament to the skills and enthusiasm of our fantastic team who ensure all the food is fresh, delicious and home made.

Gift vouchers are also available to purchase, please contact us for details. Vouchers can be tailored to your specification - anything on our menu or a cash amount can be purchased using this method. They make the perfect gift!

Support us

It costs about £40 per hour to provide a supported work placement to our beneficiaries.
