What’s in a name? Well, for this coffeehouse, a huge hint to the motif.
The Strawberry Fair Coffeehouse is actually a quaint little restaurant that doubles as a folk music showcase one Sunday evening a month, featuring musicians from the local scene. The restaurant offers soup and sandwiches, as well as the standard coffee-and-pastries fare. More unusual, alcoholic beverages are also served here. Ticket prices range from $5 to $10, which usually depends on the number of acts playing that night.

At the eastern corner of Farne, facing north, the seabed slopes down gradually for the first few metres then drops down in steps to 12 metres, forming a small cliff face with a few slots in it. On the flood, the tide runs fast into the channel between Farne and Knoxes from this position. Many of the rocky islets and submerged reefs around the Farne Islands are referred to as a shad’, a bus’ or a car’, the medieval Northumbrian names still used on today’s Admiralty charts. A shad or bus is the name for an area of shallow, permanently-submerged rocky ground, while a car is a submerged jagged reef that normally partially dries at low tide. The word car’ is usually found as the last three letters in the name of a reef, as in oxscar. This more isolated group of rocks, reefs and islets lie in a line, east to west, approximately one mile northwest of farne island and Knoxes Reef. The best and easiest time to locate them is during low tide. The Megstone dries to 5 metres on the lowest astronomical tide and is the only island or reef in this group that is permanently visible at high tide; it can be seen clearly from Seahouses, nearly 3 miles away to the SSE. Being nothing more than a small, jagged, rocky island, holding no soil or vegetation, it is split halfway down in the centre at the northern end by a long, narrow V-shaped gully a few metres deep. Hundreds of squabbling cormorants and guillemots nest on Megstone and during the summer, when the young cormorants have left the nest, they muster together in large creches, paddling around, moving and diving in unison and making a generally comical sight.
