I enjoyed my relaxed lunch here with family. We all loved our burgers and sandwiches and there are friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. The shop attached is worth a look too! Pop in here for lunch or tea and cake and you won't be disappointed

Cafe carries a small range of Paninis, baguettes and soups as well a home baked cakes. £7.95 for a burger is a bit pricey but we didn't try them so cannot comment on value as such.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here recently, of homemade soup and cake. Best soup we've had while we've been out and about touring round Scotland.
