Lovely statues

Great food friendly staff. They have a cinema room and gift shop also meeting rooms. The gift shop has lots of interesting books about sky would make a lovely gift for someone. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the place. Will definitely be coming back soon

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious steak & ale pie with peas and chips (very reasonably priced at £8.50) whilst our kids were very happy with their cod fish fingers & chips (£4.50 incl. salad & juice). The place was heaving with locals who come here for the great value food. Don't expect gourmet food but instead high quality... More

I think this place is over-rated. On every visit it seems to appear to be going downhill. I wondered if on this visit that it was going out of business and did in fact ask this question. The shelves looked particularly bare - it may be July but there are still a few holiday months left. We came out empty... More

Three of us had lunch here last week. They offer an extensive menu and we all ordered a main course. Despite the restaurant being busy we did not have to wait long and the portions were good. In comparison with other menus we had looked at in the area we all agreed the Aros cafe offered good value for money.

Stopped in for lunch as had been in a few times in the past and wondered if it had improved. Much the same as before, pretty average food much like motor way cafe. Had vegetable bake as on specials but not special. Microwaved food best part was the salad and chips. Staff helpful but who place could do with improvement.

Food very well cooked and good value for money, when we are in Sky we always go there for a pleasant meal. Of course a wander around the gift shop

Last time we had a meal here I had the quiche that was quite clearly a few days old as it was a very dark grey colour. My partner had scampi and it was terrible.

We enjoyed the new St Kilda exhibition. Found the cafe a little over priced and catering for the masses.

We stopped here for lunch. Fairly priced and a nice selection to eat and drink. A very good shop too for buying book, prints postcards etc.
