Description: The Potting Shed coffee shop always proves a popular place for locals and visitors. Everything we serve is home cooked on our premises and we source our products from local suppliers we know and trust. We have become famous for our range of scones and soups with the scones often still warm when they are served. Whether it be a hearty cooked breakfast, a light lunch, an afternoon tea or just a coffee and cake, there is something for everyone.

As a local, my friends and I often pop in to the Potting Shed for lunch or coffee and always enjoy it. The true highlight of the place is the service you receive from the wonderful Janie - she is always smiling, happy to help and exceptionally friendly. In all honesty she is a credit to the business and a shining example of fantastic customer service.The rest of the staff are also always helpful. The shop is worth a look too for their great selection of candles, plants, gifts etc. Well worth a visit if you're passing by.

Fine for a cuppa or bit of lunch while you're shopping but probably not a destination eating place. The tables and chairs are in the middle of the shop and it lacks a bit of atmosphere...good scones and soup....but nothing like as good as the Watercan tea room which was on the HIgh Street, very sorry to see it go!

Visited the restaurant for the first time on Monday and was so impressed with the food that we returned on Wednesday.... The main lingering impression is that fresh ingredients are used to produce good quality food - nothing exotic, mind, but wholesome.
The entre was packed with flavour and the scones... well, words like "melt in the mouth", "fresh", "best tasting, ever" spring to mind.
The staff worked as a team and were very helpful in recommending dishes.
Well worth a visit - highly recommended.

I moved to the Highlands almost 6 years ago. I was introduced to Mackenzie and Cruickshank in my first few months here - how very lucky I was.
With adult company or with children (from babies to 5 year olds) everything is always excellent. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The food is wonderful.
What do they do best....... all their food is great - homemade soups, fabulous cakes, huge scones and wide range of traybakes, lovely hot dishes and tasty sandwiches with a lovely salad on the side. Childrens' meals are great too.

They now offer High Tea on a Thursday - I can't wait to try that too.

We take all or visitors and cannot recommend it highly enough.
