“Big disappointment.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This is a beautiful setting on the lovely Isle of Bute, just a pity that on the day we visited the place was cold and the food was less than appetising. We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions for coffee and cake, but stopped this time for a light lunch. The Scampi that my husband had was skimpy and tasteless, the chips limp and soggy, the side salad had died of old age. On the other hand, the Pakora that I had looked and tasted like it had been cooked twice, and again, the side salad was dreadful. Never again.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Visited here to meet a friend. Pleasant tea room with great views of Loch Striven. Recommended. A shame it isn't open in the evening.

“Lovely tearoom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Food was excellent and the cost of the food was really reasonable. Our only difficulty was the lack of space for the wheelchair when other diners or staff needed to pass by, but apart from this, it was a wonderful experience.
