A wonderful cafe, very clean, bright and well presented. Wide range of cafe foods which are all attractively priced. A must for day trippers and those on staycations !!

Where do you begin with a place as FAB as this?! The food is fantastic and homemade, the cakes are incredible and the drinks are to die for! This place is a MUST when visiting the island, whether it be for a quick bite or...a really enjoyable fuel-up meal. The staff couldn’t be more accommodating and will move heaven and earth to make sure your visit is top notch. You’re missing out if you aren’t eating here!More

A perfect place to eat for your trip on the island. We sat in the beautiful court yard and had the best food. Super fresh and healthy tasting. Service was excellent too. Made us feel so welcome and catered to our every need! Couldn’t recommend...this place enough.More

Totally disagree with the last review. Highly recommend the Garrison house cafe, the food and their very friendly and helpful servers. Doing a great job. Soup is excellent and cakes are delicious. Measures taken by the staff to keep us all safe are 1st class....👍🏽 I’ll be back:More

Visited the Garrison House Cafe and wish we hadn't. After reading favourable reviews for this place we decided to have lunch there and we're sorry we did. Food was advertised as homemade and was anything but, they also had cakes and scones advertised as homemade...but looked as though they had came direct from a supermarket. When we challenged them their excuse was that we are in the middle of a pandemic. What we couldn't understand was how does being in the middle of a pandemic have to do with not being able to make homemade food as advertised. We certainly will never be back and suggested others stay away until they sort themselves out.More

Had lunch at The Garrison yesterday. The homemade soup was absolutely delicious, coffee fantastic and the caramel shortbread was divine. Great COVID procedures in place and extremely friendly staff. Highly recommend!

We visited on Saturday 5th September and had tea and fruit scones - we weren’t impressed the ‘fresh scones’ were distinctly old!! It’s not somewhere I’d recommend.

Popped into The Garrison Cafe for a cup of coffee after a relaxing stroll along the promenade. The service was efficient and friendly and the staff were willing to share a bit of banter with the customers. The courtyard is an ideal setting for a...place to chill. Credit to the staff for offering and supplying me with a fresh cup of coffee when a local fly descended into my cup.More

Very friendly and always a decent snack and a good cuppa. The smoothies are excellent, though I thought "Smoothie of the week" was me!

Disappointed that all their menu items aren’t included in the Government Help Out to Eat out scheme. We will be in in Millport for a week and would have ate here Mon till Wed if that was the case but instead we have only ate...here on the Mon due to cost. We had a baked potato, some paninis and a filled roll and some cakes and soft drinks. Food was just ok and social distancing was adhered to. Healthier options were included in the scheme but I would have hoped that bottled water would have been included but even that wasn’t, nor were the baked potatoes which is a reasonably healthy option.More
