The service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The intruiging concent of savoury toppings for crumpets turned out to be very succesful, expecially the hot smoked salmon mayonnaise. And our teenage son loved the hot dogs.

We thought we would try here for a nice lunch with our children aged 3 and 5, but didn't realise just how nice it would be! It predominantly has smoked products on the menu, of course as it is a smokehouse, but as we are not keen on smoked products, my husband and I ordered the Marrburger, which is one... More

Stopped off on trip along A75. Didn't expect much to be honest but boy was I wrong, an absolutely super menu, loads of gluten free options and absolutely delish cakes..the setting just off the A75 is actually really lovely with beautiful views out to sea and Carsluith Castle ruins to wander around.

I've had some of the best smoked salmon offered in Scandinavia and the northwest coast of the United States. The cold smoked salmon and gravlax at... More

Arrived in the rain only to find there were no tables free so we sat in the garden under a brolly! Had the salt caramel chocolate tart and lemon and white chic cheesecake with tea and hot chocolate. Absolutely to die for. Lovely staff! Worth a stop off.

Quality smoked ingredients. The salmon was divine with scrambled eggs. The service was friendly and attentive. I met the bloke who smokes the ingredients. Full of passion and knowledge. Bought some kippers to take away for breakfast. Simply stunning!

HI Dan T Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Just what we love to hear :) Smoked chicken and cheddar is my husband's staple "I have no time to cook this is what you are getting tonight" - he loves it! I think people are always surprised when its served up - its not quite your "ordinary baguette"... More

Had a lovely meal of the salmon and chips. My husband had the haggis lasagne. We were too full for dessert. Very good value.
