Excellent food and friendly service Stopped off on our way to Scotland for a lunch. A good menu, with a nice, quirky selection of 'specials'. Food was delicious, and service was friendly and helpful. Good experience also for our autistic daughter and her assistance dog!
Restaurant and shop to consider Very nice stop on my way to Scotland. Enjoyed a fresh and homemade food. The service was very kind from a team of young adults.
Steak Burgers were amazing, even the side salad & dressing was surprisingly tasty.
Good service and excellent food, bacon cob mmmm!
