    EatScotland Says:

    This welcoming tearoom continues to offer a high standard of food and service as part of a very well run farm and garden shop. Much produce from the farm and elsewhere in Scotland is used in the wide range of snacks and light meals, with sources highlighted on the menu. The excellent home baking alone merits a trip.

    Cheese and onion quiche with salad and coleslaw: "A large slice of quiche with a colourful side salad, and a small pot of coleslaw on the side." "Well made pastry, properly browned, and with a deep creamy filling of nicely browned onions and mature cheddar." "Delicious, crunchy coleslaw with a hint of onion. A light, crisp salad of mixed leaves, shredded carrot, mixed peppers, quartered tomatoes and small pieces of fresh orange." "A traditional style of quiche, well made and full of rich flavours in harmony." "Very good pastry making skill apparent."
