This is a small restaurant which is open every day.the food is all made to order and well worth the wait. Can be busy so better phoning first as it is out side Forfar next no the Foresterseat Caravan park.

My wife and I have been here for breakfast a few times and the staff are brilliant. The cost is great and service very good. Their bacon roll is to die for. Highly recommended.

This place is a bit hard to find tucked away on a cul-de-sac behind the caravan site of the same name about three miles outside Forfar, but it is worth finding.
