I go to eat. Filling my belly these days is the only pleasure in life. Here I found attentive staff, the waiter we had seemed to be everywhere at once!?! Very clean surroundings and food that was home cooked well, and very delicious. The food came reasonably quickly after order, and was hot and comforting. I had the mince pie... More

A pleasant lunch in a comfortable cafe/restaurant. Menu was a bit restricted - first selections not available - possibly due to quiet season, perhaps because about to change hands in near future.

Me and my girlfriend arrived to a rude greeting followed by the worst breakfast I've ever eaten, and far over priced for what we got.

Very nice place to go in for coffee. We had lovely cheese scones, best ones that I have tasted in a while. The staff were very pleasant.

Good varied menu with something to suit everyone and a good specials board. We had the poached salmon and haggis tatties and turnip, can recommend both, they were delicious. Lovely setting and really friendly staff and reasonably priced. The home made cakes looked really good but we resisted, maybe next time as we will definately be back.

I'm a fussy eater as my friends will say, had a very nice lunch today and big high five to kitchen and front of house staff for seeing to my quirky ways. Service and meals are top notch and would recommend for anyone in the area to pay a visit and you won't be disappointed.
