What exquisite food ! We love this place, the food. the owners, the ambience so much that we don`t really want too many people finding out about it. But that`s selfish and this place deserves recognition.
A glorious evening!

Now a firm favourite on the "Where shall we go for a sunday drive and lunch", this gem of a restaurant has you wanting to try everything... luckily there's a lovely garden for a walk to leave room for dessert, if you over-do it.

Scandanavian influences (lovely sourdough bread, smorbord open snacks (sandwiches is not kind enough)) abound, with welcome local sourcing all over the menu.

Our party tried a large swaithe of the menu - Haggis Neeps + Tatties, with leeks cooked in cream (lovely!), Belly Pork (lovely) and the Lentil Soup (lovely!).

We even tried some things you might not expect to be gorgeous (beetroot + dunsire blue smorbord) but it too was perfect - very carefully balanced flavours, presented without pretention.

No childrens menu, but they are very willing to serve half portions of anything, and go the extra mile to offer (reasonable) substitutions where possible for the less flexible pallet.

Faultless service, just great. Thanks!

Its nice to find a welcoming restaurant/cafe when you've walked through these gardens especially on a wet day.There is a separate disabled entrance for cars half a mile further on from the main entrance, so you can park right at the side of the restaurant which is in a converted barn. We didn't have a meal although the food looked interesting although pricey. We had lovely strong coffee from a decent machine and Borders Tart which looked a bit like the " fly cemetery" cake we had when I was at school (showing my age!) however it was a glorious snack with melt in the mouth pastry and a very sweet buttery current and sultana filling. Its worth a drive for this alone. Log fire had a lovely smell and they played Bob Marley. Toilets were very cold and the disabled one is in the ladies normal toilets. Basic but OK. However if you were in a wheel chair you would not be able to see in the mirror.
