Arrived at 12 noon for Saturday lunch and only waited a couple of minutes for a table (noticed a longer queue as we left). Delicious St Monans smoked haddock chowder and cheese scone. The shop is also great for a browse.

Lovely farm shop, huge range and decent value. Clean bright interesting surroundings. Unfortunately lunch was nothing special. Comparative quality and taste to a department store cafe but was hoping for something a bit more special. Fine if you are passing but wouldn’t go out of...More
