Great tea, sandwiches and puddings in the old kitchen of the house. I selected a dish that sported three kinds of salmon, smoked and fresh, and it was delicious. Great selection of cakes. Good strong tea. Very sweet place.

There is a lovely courtyard, for when the Scottish weather is kind, as well as space indoors. The food is not exceptional, but is goof, wholesome, fresh & good value.

Just the ticket to give you a rest from the beautiful house and gardens. We enjoyed excellent lentil soup and very tasty haggis sausage rolls. Very good value.

Reasonable range of filled sandwiches + one soup and some cakes. Not obvious that there is seating indoors possibly would benefit from some signage.
