Our guide suggested we order and pay for our lunch before our long walk up the hill!

We returned cold, wet and hungry!
Hot soup, hot food, a good cup of tea and yummy hot chocolate were waiting for us. Our party of 6 was immediately welcomed to enjoy our lunch in the warm cozy cafe. I don't remember what I ate, but I do remember the comforting cup of tea!

Loved this center. Quaint,Friendly and Great Food. Loved the activities available for young family--would have loved to have stayed in cottages.

We camped here for a few nights in September. Great little spot! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this place and we'll definitely be returning. It's situated near the foot of the megalithic Cairns. So plenty of lovely scenery. If you are into walking or cycling it's a great location.

Lovely food and friendly staff. We went there on a Sunday morning and whilst the restaurant was not too busy the owner sat down with us and shared his experience of setting up business. Feel that we should support such people who risk all as I am very sure that he has invested heavily. Highly recommend a visit.

We're locals but live away . We always walk up the mountain as we call it when home but this is first time we've had food and drink in Martin Shorts place . It's really great and I wish him every success. The shop manned by the husband of the artist was great and the pics etc really fab . Food and drinks good- homemade soup lovely , jacket potato lovely but bacon like leather , no one checked on us - drinks took forever to arrive but we weren't too bothered . The lady could have been a bit friendlier to be honest , she was helpful but just very serious and detached . Considering the place she'd need to be more friendly and chatty to add to the wonderful experience M Short is trying to create. It's done out beautifully. I'd highly recommend.
