Came across this place while touring with our caravan. There's no parking directly at the location but a there is a public car park and on street parking within easy walking distance. Found a convenient spot to park our unit and were pleased we made the effort. It's a great place. Lovely views while trying to decide what to sample... More

Our second time here. Its a bring your own bottle restaurant by night and a Tea room by day. Menu changes every week and was very good indeed, We didn't get to the dessert which looked superb, because we were full from the starter & main courses. A real find for the area

We found this quite by accident while in the area with our grandchildren. The soup is a meal in itself and is excellent. The cakes made a perfect finish to an excellent meal. If you are anywhere near Moniaive, then go and have something to eat in The Green Tea House. You will not be disappointed.

Return visit to this place, having been there 5 years previously on another holiday. Both times great food. This time ate their for dinner and lunch. Big portions (especially dinner), really good food. Be sure to check out the variety of cakes in the fridge which are a) really good and b) massive portion sizes. Be mindful that as this... More

We lunched here and had an excellent hot sandwich. The roll was very fresh and there was lots of filling. It was very busy and is obviously very popular with locals and visitors. Very friendly staff. Excellent value for money. It also appears to be an art gallery and tourist information point. Worth a visit.

Just back from another phenomenal feed at the green tea house. If this place was in London it would have Michelin stars and Catherine would be...err...pope! So lucky to have this place on our doorstep. One criticism, when it comes to deserts, Catherine makes Raymond Blanc look like Mr Kipling, but I never have room!! Special mention to the staff,...

We called for a coffee and a snack. The fruit scone was lovely and the gingerbread delicious. Unfortunately cinnamon was sprinkled on our coffees. We didn't complain but think customers should be asked first. Much prefer chocolate sprinkled on top. Staff were lovely. The cafe was very busy and obviously well liked. Would visit again.

Recent visit with 5 friends and lucky to get a table I believe. This place must be gaining a good reputation. Although my main course was a bit disappointing - lentil and vegetable pie - it had no pastry and was more or less a vegetarian stew with a bit of spicing, the dessert's were out of this world. We...

Feel awful doing a bad review for this place, maybe our expectations were too high. Cold is the word I would use, cold coffee, cold building, despite being huddled at the fire we were frozen on not a particularly cold day. The food we had was mediocre, maybe just our choice wasn't great. Also a bit off putting all the... More
