They are located in a tranquil, rural setting - a nice change from the standard pubs. The dining room is open, airy and relaxing. The food is tasty.

We've been coming here for many years. You can always rely on the coffee shop being open, with a warm welcome. We've spend many a wet morning or afternoon here, usually in front of the fire, drinking excellent coffee and enjoying home baked cakes. Little touches like warming the scones in the oven are appreciated.

What a smashing wee tea room and craft centre. Very sliughtly off the beaten track but so easy to find. It is set in fantastic surroundings and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. Only stayed for coffees but well worth it. Big bonus - the dog was made very welcome too.

We stopped by here following a walk on a rainy day. The lady who served us was very friendly and they have lovely cakes. The much appreciated log fire was burning and very quaint.

We visited here with a large group of very wet walkers and were made very welcome. Plenty of space to put our dripping jackets before enjoying some very good home baking and gallons of freshly made tea and coffee. A great place to end a walk on the hills.

Excellent boeuf bourguignon dish, full of flavour, accompanied by local craft beer, and followed by ginger cake/fudge sauce. Good service and exceptional value.

Service was a little slow, soup was delicious! Free ice creams were offered to make up for it. Lovely craftwork on display, quirky cafe with plenty of space to sit. Great find off the beaten track.
