Called in here on our way home after our holiday in Balmaha. All I can say is why didn't we come here before? Not only is this probably the most quirky shopping sites with a vast array of great gifts, clothes, food-stuffs etc but the restaurant served us a fantastic breakfast. A little over £10 for Full Scottish breakfast including... More

The afternoon tea includes finger sandwiches, delicious scones and a choice of cream cakes. Service is excellent and the restaurant is delightfully light and sunny.

Popped in here for lunch and a bit of shopping and wasn't disappointed. Lunch was beautifully served in spotless surroundings. I always have the salad here as it is so tasty but on a Sunday they have a carvery which looked amazing. The shopping has clothes which are all quite different from the high street and all reasonably priced

Visited along with my husband and mother-in-law for lunch and had attempted to book a table, however, was told that they do not take bookings which rather surprised me. We stood at the welcome board for sometime before we were taken to a table and for an elderly lady with walking difficulties standing proved problematic. The dining room is very... More

First visit but with friends who are regulars. A lovely bright airy venue for lunch or afternoon tea. Very pleasant efficient staff. Wide variety of small, medium and larger menu options all at reasonable prices. The quality was high even if the Tempura Prawns were more batter than prawn. The cake display was awesome and that alone is worth another... More
