Visited with friends after a long morning of hillwalking. The service was relaxed and friendly. The food was nothing fancy but tasted fresh and was exactly what we were looking for. Loads of space for parking and plenty of seating.

My wife and I called in for a light lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find lots of gluten free options. Enjoyed a bowl of homemade soup which was delicious. Good place to stop on this busy road

Hi Janet, We do not do High Teas. We prepare a wide selection of meals and have cakes and scone. We just don't combine the two as a high tea. Thanks for your question, Alistair
