Go for the Food!

Enjoyed a delicious light lunch here. Soup & sandwich combo and toastie with salad & crisps all fresh & tasty. Wish we had room for a cake! Lady who served us could have been friendlier but her service was efficient. This place is closing for the season soon - although the adjoining shop is to... read more

Glenbarr shop, cafe and garden centre are now under new ownership. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. I recommend the home-made soup with cheese scone. And the home-baked cake is yummy - so many choices too. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, with full capacity on a nasty wet Sunday at lunch time. I'm... More

Have visited the Kintyre area for a few years & eventually found this little treasure. We always have a light lunch when here & we are never disappointed.I enjoy the soup & sandwich combo. The soups are truly scrummy.... The service is excellent & the staff are friendly. I would highly recommend a visit here.

Unfriendly Po-faced staff ruined our visit! Whatever happend to the "customer is alaways right" ?? The folk that run this place seem to do so at their own convienience - rude & unwelcoming.

Coffee shop through back of general shop and part of the Glenbarr Garden Centre. Good food and selection of homemade cakes . Worth a visit either heading to Campbeltown or on way back up from Campbeltown. Good garden centre.

Ideally placed on the road to Campbeltown and situated on a small loop off the main road; we stopped to check it out after seeing a sign on the main road. What we found was a delightful tea room, bright and clean, which served some first class home made food including vegetarian options. Very good tea and coffee (including decaf).... More

On staying in Campbeltown, we had a ride out to Glenbarr, and stopped at the nursery/cafe. Although off the beaten track, worth a visit. The menu is limited, but the cakes etc are all home made and generous portions. It is not expensive and well worth a visit. The nursery looks rather tired, and flowers and plants in the greenhouse...

Good home cooking in a garden atmosphere. Plenty of locally produced gifts in the shop area. The garden centre is well stocked with a wide variety of plants and garden equipment.

I visited this cafe with a friend and her 4year old grandchild. We asked for a childrens menu or a small portion of quiche for the child. We were told "we don't do child portions as we can get left with the other small portion which is a waste" The quiche was already cut into slices which when we ate... More
