Thistle-Do-Nicely does not look like much when you walk past - but it is a very pleasant surprise. The food is good, the staff very friendly and efficient. It's a lovely place for a cuppa, a sandwich, breakfast or a nice coffee.

Visited a couple of weeks ago around lunchtime. Food was good and filling, but sorry guys not impressed with the milkshakes, neither cold or thick enough, so would give these a miss.

Good, friendly cafe serving traditional Scots fare (in England!). But who ever heard of a square [Lorne] sausage roll served with ....... salad!?! That's just wrong! Chips, yes but salad, oh, no! Quite a large menu for a little place, nice and tidy, clean but no more than a quick stop on your way round town.

We have been in England for 2 months and this had some of the best food we've had since we've been here. Definitely the best macaroni and cheese we've had since we've been here. I'm so glad we stopped by and we will definitely go again if we are up that way.

Thank kyerka
