A gem of a restaurant in Innerleithen. Very small but fabulous food. A huge menu to choose from but never disappointing. Highly recommend trying this restaurant.

Lovely meal for our daughter's birthday. Only a few tables, so advisable to book ahead. Try the spiced tea, very aromatic, delicious, as was the food
