Wonderful food and service. Delicious vegan options. Staff all went out of their way to make our visit special. The soup was delicious and vegan dairy alternatives made the visit special for our son.

Stopped on route to Lairg. Fancied a bite to eat so stopped here. Lovely food, simple sandwiches with a home made twist, home made hot chocolate and home made cakes. Not cheap but worth it for the quality!
