I was there for lunch and had a baked goats cheese dish with walnut salad and red onion chutney. My friend had an excellent cheese omelette with salad. There was plenty of choice on the menu and it was served in good time.

Dropped in for lunch and discovered fantastic gluten free options available alongside the main menu. Friendly service with tasty curry flavoured popcorn offered while our food was cooked. Our lunch arrived promptly and was very tasty. Highly recommend a visit.

We were pleased to be able to enjoy a very late brunch (1pm), since The Quaich serves breakfast all day. The food was good, the prices very reasonable, and the service friendly. We were even treated to cinnamon popcorn while we waited the brief time...More
