Had lunch here. Food was OK, but nothing special. Not a bad spot if you are in the area visiting Skara Brae.

We had a great afternoon out at the Orkney Brewery! We chose to go for lunch and then do the tour. The food was fantastic and I would definitely go back just to eat there again. The menu utilises the delicious local cheese and this...More
