We had a brief look around and found it to be bright and clean. The toiulets were clean as well. The art display at the time was something that didn't quite chime with us, but that is just down to personal preference and will obviously...More

Great wee place, nice and quiet. Lovely pint and the foods nice too. Bit out of the way from town but worth the wait.

We've eaten here a couple of times. It is ok, nothing special. Waiting staff friendly and helpful. Menu needs to be a bit more original.

A snobby wee place full of snobby people who look down their noses at ordinary people. Do yourself a favour and visit the wee cafe up the street you will save yourself a fortune.

The HAC provides a good contemporary space for events. The gallery hosts a range of artists works. Cafe on the premises and ample parking nearby.

This is an arts centre. There may well be events or classes suitable for your granddaughter, especially during the summer, but you'll need to book her place. Check the HAC website.
