Had lunch here whilst staying locally on trip around Scotland. Food was simple with a South American flair. Provided sandwiches, omelette, cakes and dinks. Not much else needed. I had the potato omelette which was delicious and came with a very fresh delicious salad.

Wonderful food and service. Delicious vegan options. Staff all went out of their way to make our visit special. The soup was delicious and vegan dairy alternatives made the visit special for our son.
