You would never just come across this little gem because it really is 'hidden'. However when you do find it, it is worth it! Beautiful, quirky surroundings - like stepping into Alice's Wonderland. Everything is beautifully done and absolutely delicious. A lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

We went in after seeing it on the Alan Cummings programme. Sat upstairs and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed. The food cane reasonably quickly and was nice. One o the best scones I've ever tasted. Definitely worth visiting if you can find it

If you like a different kind of place to eat...you should try this hidden gem. Very cozy feeling of a place. We had tea and scones upstairs

I had wanted to visit this place for a long time, Scotland the Best (Peter Irvine Guide Book) give it two ticks which is always a very, very good sign. Once again "The Book" did not let me down.

Mismatching furniture, or vintage as they call it these days, and a very higgeldy piggeldy lay out. Space is at a premium. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon which was lovely and quiet.

You cant go wrong with a warm welcome, and this place delivered that.

I had the tomato and chilli soup which was yummy. My husband had the Blue Cheese, Chorizo and Onion Marmalade sandwich which was scrummy - I tried a wee bit.

Cakes look home made, in a nice way.

Service was excellent.

It is in a very odd location but worth checking out if you are in the area

A quirky little cafe that, as the name suggests, is hidden behind a lane. My friend and I went in for an afternoon tea (£12 each) that included any tea from their tea menu, scones, sandwiches, and a selection of mini sweets/cakes.

The tea latte menu looked exciting and I would highly recommend it; I choose a spicy Turkish apple and cinnamon tea latte topped with honey and diced dried apple. It was delicious and wonderfully fragrant.

Selection of sandwiches included beetroot and hummus, ham with salad and interesting sauces, and tuna with mayo + spring onions. Our desserts were a mini salted caramel tart topped with strawberry, coconut and chocolate covered sponge, orange drizzle sponge and an unknown raspberry tray-bake/cake hybrid.

Not sure exactly what the last sweet was and it was the least tasty of all of them (none of us finished it).

Was good value for money, especially the teas. Sandwiches were lovely and the sweets selection was good. We were two ladies and couldn't finish the afternoon tea!

Service was good - the waitresses were lovely and the place was nicely decorated with quirky little tea sets and cake stands. Truely homely and everything felt very welcoming.
