Me and my girlfriend arrived to a rude greeting followed by the worst breakfast I've ever eaten, and far over priced for what we got.

Very nice place to go in for coffee. We had lovely cheese scones, best ones that I have tasted in a while. The staff were very pleasant.

Good varied menu with something to suit everyone and a good specials board. We had the poached salmon and haggis tatties and turnip, can recommend both, they were delicious. Lovely setting and really friendly staff and reasonably priced. The home made cakes looked really good but we resisted, maybe next time as we will definately be back.

I'm a fussy eater as my friends will say, had a very nice lunch today and big high five to kitchen and front of house staff for seeing to my quirky ways. Service and meals are top notch and would recommend for anyone in the area to pay a visit and you won't be disappointed.

Go here fairly often as like the food and atmosphere. However the bill for a quick lunch for two adults and two kids was £38. How can they possible justify £6.50 for a panini with a wee bowl of crisps?? Also to then charge an extra £1.50 for another filling - meaning my kids were charged £8 each for a... More

Have had coffee, light lunches & main lunches here a few times in the past & the food & service is always excellent. Yesterday's visit was no different...the chicken stroganoff was delicious & my kids enjoyed their lasagne & chicken curry. Our only 'complaint' was the burger my husband had off the specials board...it was overcooked & very dry. An... More
