We have driven past Whitshiels Diner so many times but today we stopped for lunch for the first time. I had steak pie and my wife had roast beef. She was too full for a pudding but I forced down an apricot crumble sponge with cream. All in the name of research, you understand. Every thing was soooo tasty. Clean... More

My friend and I went up to whitshiels cafe for lunch. It was very good and we really enjoyed it. I had the giant Yorkshire pudding with sausage, chicken, stuffing with mash potatoes and peas my friend had the chicken baguette with chips. We will be back in the very near future.

First visit for ages. Work has been going on to make the outside more attractive and since our visit signs have been added to make it much clearer that they are there and OPEN. Toilets are the least satisfactory aspect as they are out door. What we ate was decent fast and modestly priced. Well worth a call if you... More

Stopped here for coffee and delicious cakes. Our visit was enhanced by the opportunity to watch the hen harrier chicks in the nest via live webcam.

Stopped off for breakfast after finding on trip advisor and decided to try. The photos show diner sign which is no longer there. New owners obviously started to smarted up the outside, flagged access for wheelchairs and outside tables, but generally the exterior could be off putting. Had an excellent freshly cooked breakfast, reasonably priced, very friendly owners & good... More
