Very clean, nice ambience, friendly and attentive staff and YUMMY food nicely presented, what's not to like. Just had a Mothers Day afternoon Tea for 4th... More

I loved the building and grounds. The cafe sells excellent baking. Must try it. I used to train at Bellahouston (ski-ing) and can't believe I never noticed this before. Nice family day out to be had here :o)

It's a very fascinating building , given I'm from this side of the city I'm shocked that I've never been inside until I took my son. He had a great time and there was a wedding on , so pretty. Cafe is nice to

Room with a view , and an excellent lunch. A simple Greek Salad for starters was fresh and tangy , followed by Spring Lamb with Gnocchi - absolutely delicious. A sweet of Banana Cheesecake with Salted Caramel & Banana Ice Cream was worth the modest extra charge. House Red & White were excellent. The standard of cooking would stand comparison... More

What a beautiful place! I'd never been before and can't believe I hardly knew it existed. Words can't do justice to the design and flow of this building, you have to see it. While youre there treat yourself to something from the restaurant, the food is gorgeous and obviously has had a great deal of thought put into the selection... More
