Massive pot of tea for two and top up of hot water! Excellent value at £7.95 each.... More

Stopped here today around 12.30 and had the oddest black Americano coffee - hot and the right consistency but absolutely flavourless. Not weak, just tasteless! And for that we paid £2.50 per cup. Nice setting though.

Fresh and delicious food. Great service but place was pretty cold. Lovely outdoor seating area and very accommodating for kids. Ice cream after is a must!

6 of us stopped here and are we glad we did! Great food and gluten free was no problem. Lovely setting just off A9 just South of Inverness. Fantastic ice cream. Good service and good accessibility for wheelchairs. Outside play area for kids and plenty parking space. What more could you want - well worth a visit.

We visited today for the first time and we were all delighted. The homemade cakes were gorgeous and everything was presented beautifully. It was extremely busy yet the staff were all very friendly and attentive, offering coffee refills and checking we were happy throughout. I definitely look forward to returning soon.

Popped in with the family for a quick 'light bite' and left feeling stuffed! Soup and a sandwich proved a vast undertaking even for a fully grown man who prides himself on being able to eat a lot.
