“Unique character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We ate here only once in our recent visit to the area, but that one time was one of the best steaks that I have had and I have tried many places over the years.
The building itself has so much character, the service was first class, From The outside it looks like a timber shed, but its sooo much more than a tea room and i'm sure it will go from strength to strength serving good food well cooked and at a reasonable price.
If im back down that way again I will definitely try to find time to call again.

“Good discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

After a most enjoyable hill walk above Glen Finglas, my wife and I called in at the Brig O'Turk Tearoom for tea and cakes. Good decision! There was an excellent choice of teas (which we appreciate), and the home-baked cakes on offer were very tempting. Those we chose were delicious. The service (from the very pleasant proprietor) was also friendly and helpful. To be recommended.

“lovely tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Today 15th April my husband and I had our tea here. We are staying nearby for a week, on our way out for a drive we decided to go in for tea. To our surprise the food was lovely, the best burger and chips we have had in a long time and the service was good and very friendly. we will definitely be back before we go home.

“SO FRESH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Have visited a couple of times now and enjoyed everything we've had. Set in what resembles a lodge,the tearoom/restaurant is warm and quant.The staff,Hungarian I think, are very attentive and welcoming.The menu was refreshingly different with lots of choice and included Goulash served in a small bucket.I loved it!
The cakes and scones are wonderful.So Fresh and what a selection!Go early at week-end to avoid disappointment.Open also for Dinner and licenced.Beautiful walks in this area,so great place to pop into before or after for sustainance.
