The first time we went to Gadie's,Friends of us highly recommended this place so we were excited to experience the place.
They serve lunch after 3pm which is great- we ate elsewhere thinking they would not serve food after 2pm but they were.
As for tea, they only had 1 type of cake and 1 type of scone. And they tasted pretty average to me (Scone was not warmed sadly).
Casual seating setting and yet the price does not reflect that. Great tea leaves tea though.
As a vegetarian, not great Veggie option for meals. I would say this place has a lot of potential in menu and the service. Has a shop that sells crafts next door- great.

Have been here a few times now and have never come away thinking that it was really nice or we really enjoyed. On occasions, salads aren't the freshest, burgers a little uncooked, batter of the fried fish soggy. However, it is fairly local to us and handy. It has a pleasant environment, quite calming, though a little cold. When we have had lunch here, I would say it is average. On another occasions we have had either cakes, scones or traybakes and a hot drink. The scones and cakes could be fresher. Rather expensive for a slice of cake £3.50 I think! A glass of Irn Bru will set you back a ridiculous £3.30! What?? And the milk shakes are very expensive too. Other than that, would recommend for a coffee. Gift shop attached horrendously expensive.

the food was excellent!!! Not what I expected when arriving, the staff could have been better, but all in all a very pleasant experience. Also has a quirky little shop attached as well. We was lucky to get a table at lunch, would advise booking, and its worth it!

Delicious again - the starter wasn't brilliant or it would have been 5 out of 5 for food. Great service. Our 3rd time here and never disappointed which is really important to us; we can't afford to go out every week or even every month so when we do go out and spend £ it's important it's not a disappointment. Gadie never is.
