Love to say we loved, prices fair. Didn't live up to our roots. Found the pies (turkey) not great. Taty scones not what we are accustomed to:( Empire biscuits terrific!!

Who knew Scottish food could be so tasty?!? No haggis in sight here... just wonderfully flavorful meat pies and desserts. We had sausage roll and beef & onion 'bridie'. Both had tons of puff pastry, all made on site, and were delicious. Dessert was Shortbreads covered with caramel and chocolate... excellent! Can't wait to try the freshly baked cheese bread!
