Lovely food, great service, fantastic views and a great underlying message and ethos. We were just needing a drink but this proved to be a lucky find. Staff were very friendly.

Stopped for a cup of tea and a wee treat on our way around the north of the island. Great scones and fruit cake and my son loved the caramel shortcake. Nice wee stretch of the legs and great views from the hill at the back.

We called in for a mid afternoon snack, escaping from the rain outside. The cafe is spacious and airy, the staff friendly and free WiFi is available.

The centre has a dual purpose firstly as a local community centre, secondly as a residential centre for young people who, whatever the reason, have challenging backgrounds.

After a fantastic bus journey around the north of the island, we were ready for lunch - and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient; the burgers were really good, and nicely presented. Great value and fantastic views.

Lovely clean and spacious restaurant, shown to our table by a courteous young lady, Had a light lunch Cullin Skink soup ( could have been a bit more fish in the soup) however it was tasty. Has a very nice dinner menu and last orders are 2200 hours
