We called here on our way north to Aberdeen. It has delicious food and some lovely things in their shop. The only downside was the ladies' toilets - which though spotlessly clean could do with a little upgrading. Staff friendly and efficient.

Worth a visit for some shopping and a fairly standard garden centre restaurant. Visit the lake at the rear of the centre where a model boat club have some lovely model ships and the seating is ideal for a break from driving.

A busy cafe, garden centre and shop. Plenty of tables and space. The food was ok with huge portions, coffee not great - a bit weak. Shop well stocked but perhaps could do better with local foodstuffs, farm shop type things.
