We had coffee and scones here today and it was lovely. Very good value and pleasant service. So many bits and pieces in the Lairds Kitchen

Awful place. Dirty, smells musty and damp. Tea room is a joke! Portions ridiculously small and service poor. Don't waste your time visiting. Also don't visit unless you have a 4x4...the road is full of huge potholes!

Yes - I would think so. When we visited, there was a group of 8 women arrived. They were expected and a table had been set out for them with a special afternoon tea selection.
