Popped in en-route to home after running 10 mile race- so hungry! It was early, so place was quiet. Service was friendly and considerate. We all had different main meals from pasta to haloumi and tagine. All were excellent.

En route to Glasgow, we were looking for a quick bite to eat. I chose the fish tea for £6 and my husband had soup with a toastie. All very tasty. The staff were friendly, the restaurant nicely decorated.
