Stopped for a quick drink to dodge the rain, welcoming, clean, reasonably priced. Didn't stop for food but looked nice. They had what looked like a very extensive ice cream selection too! Crayons and colouring kept my 2 year old entertained.

Come here regularly for their famous wraps which never really disappoint. Place is in a handy location just a couple of minutes walk from town looking our at the castle grounds. The service is always poor no matter when you come - unfriendly, unhelpful and served gruntingly with a frown.

We visit Stornoway every year and always make time to have lunch here. It's in a good central location overlooking the old harbour and serves good food - some standard dishes, some a little bit more special, but all well cooked, inviting to look at and always tasty.

We came here for a family meal with my mother inlaw when she visited last. She is Vegan.
