I've been here many times over the last few years and never been disappointed. Went yesterday with my gran (90years old) and my wee boy (2 years old) and we all had a great time.

Albeit I live within five miles of the tearoom, this was our first visit and most enjoyable it was. The tea room came recommended and certainly did not disappoint. The food could not be faulted in any way and the staff, very helpful. We have already talked about out return and know what we what we want to order.
