We always make this our stop when taking a walk around the loch. Good service, good food, and little visitors outside to say hello who don't mind their picture being taken.

Stopped for a snack. Quite slow service but excellent food. Good views over boating lake and can also hire fishing equipment or buy food to feed ducks. Rather disappointed at notice on toilets charging 50p!

Been here many times and have never experienced anyone being rude or patronising that accounts for staff as well as the owners ... perhaps you have the wrong establishment?
