6 of us stopped here and are we glad we did! Great food and gluten free was no problem. Lovely setting just off A9 just South of Inverness. Fantastic ice cream. Good service and good accessibility for wheelchairs. Outside play area for kids and plenty parking space. What more could you want - well worth a visit.

We visited today for the first time and we were all delighted. The homemade cakes were gorgeous and everything was presented beautifully. It was extremely busy yet the staff were all very friendly and attentive, offering coffee refills and checking we were happy throughout. I definitely look forward to returning soon.

Popped in with the family for a quick 'light bite' and left feeling stuffed! Soup and a sandwich proved a vast undertaking even for a fully grown man who prides himself on being able to eat a lot. The sandwich consisted of lovely thick sliced with a packed filling, combined with a lovely hearty soup there was barely any room... More

This is a popular restaurant/cafe in lovely surrounding countryside on the outskirts of inverness. A good varied menu but not extensive. The food is excellent and well cooked and presented. Attentive staff who were very pleasant. Always a favourite so recommended.

Was on our way to Aviemore after landing at Inverness and saw the signs on the road side, we were all hungry and decided to pop in. What an amazing decision this was, staff were great, food amazing and reasonably priced. We didn't managed all the afternoon tea so were given takeaway boxes to take on our way. Very clean... More

Living locally, we visited the restaurant after being a few times before and enjoying it. However, it appears to have changed quite a bit since which is a real shame as there is plenty of potential for a place like this. The service was terrible and I hope they learn from their basic mistakes, but let me explain below. We... More

We enjoyed fish and chips for lunch but the other dishes coming out to neighbouring tables looked great too. Friendly service and decent value.

A lovely cafe well worth the drive out from Inverness for a visit. Set in lovely grounds with a playground on the premises so would be ideal for the summer. Good food and cakes
