Good selection of sandwiches/ toasties/ quichebaked potatoes etc along with changing daily specials. The chicken haggis and cranberry toastie was a bit different and very nice. Good to be able to get freshly squeezed orange. Cakes were also nice with varied selection.More

Lovely wee place in a beautiful setting but unfortunately the rest of the lunch experience was a disappointment. Taken individually most of the following would probably be shrugged off but I'll leave people to make up their own mind. The tearoom was busy but by...More
