Went to dinner, my sister who lives close by, recommended we book; the Resaurant was full that evening but they accommodated a late sitting. The food was locally sourced Scottish cuisine with a slant to sea food. The chef left london for a change of pace and decided to stay. The actual building was a tea room and the ambiance... More

The lady who served us was pleasant and friendly and gave us time to consider our order. I asked for a cappuccino but I was informed apologetically that she had no cappuccino cups... More

I thought I'd walked into the filming of Ashes to Ashes. I was transported back to the 1970's. Cona coffee bubling away on the hotplate. cheese and chips, pie and chips. No this was a blast from the past too far. Food not great, coffee terrible. dated decor. clutter. Just not for the faint hearted. Food nil point. coffee nil... More

Amazing home cooked food. Fantastic atmosphere - like the idea of games and puzzles - great to keep kids happy and entertained. Good prices - had a bacon & egg roll, a cake and a pot of tea (which gave me 2 cups) for only £5.50. Very friendly - tourist info on hand and staff will advise on things to... More
