Called in here on way up North. Friendly service and reasonable prices. Good menu choice would go back if in the area again.

We stopped off here twice on our way to + from the highlands and found the staff to be friendly and the food and service good. The decor may be old fashioned + not as glossy as some services nearer home down south but the welcome makes up for it. A simple but good selection of hot food and reasonable... More

Came with chips which were uneatable and a few freezer peas. Tried to catch someones attention to complain but the only girl on the counter... More

I had home cooked Steak pie and chips, excellent taste and a good size portion. The pie was of the puff pastry type, containing meat, mushrooms and other vegetables.

Heading up North, it was a great pit stop for a big fry up breakfast. We ordered a full breakfast each; quality was quite good and VERY filling. The place was nothing fancy – décor and foot items basic. The restaurant itself seems to have been there for quite a while (my husband and friends said they used to go... More

Stopped for a break due to high volume of traffic and had a breakfast sandwich and cup of tea. The sandwich was freshly made, the food hot and plentiful and worth the pitstop. Its not the Ritz but its a great location of the A9 with plenty parking, nice friendly staff and very reasonably priced and varied menu with something... More
