We visited for lunch and opted or the Cullen Skink with brown bread at £4.95 each! We both loved the soup and the service was professional and came with a smile.

Popped in here for coffee and a scone. Staff were young and pleasant. Only cheese scones available, but they were very good.

Stopped in here for lunch and had the Cullen Skink. Creamy, flavoursome Cullen Skink to be proud of with oodles of fish. Lovely lunchtime stop.

We had a meal on a Sunday and it was maybe a weekend staffing/planning issue but some meals looked and had the texture of food that had been reheated or microwaved for too long - sweaty, frazzled and overly chewy to varying degrees. The quality...More
