Excellent lunch with great food served by very friendly staff. Although you have to drive there it is well worth it. Only negative was price of soft drink which I felt was a bit steep. Looking after the driver could help return business.

Could I ask why it's not possible for somebody walking or traveling past to not get a drink only. After the embarrassment of traveling all the way from Kilmarnock to get turned away at the threshold. It was VERY EMBARRASSING. ALSO it would have allowed me and my wife to then sit down and look at the menu then for another time. CHRIST I'd just come from a dear friends funeral and don't like getting treated like I'm 6 and not 56.
