This is a very popular place and serves handmade continental delicious exquisite gateaux. It is likely to be busy, however , it is all worth the wait. There is a perched seating area which overlooks squirrel and bird feeders. The laid out gardens are beautiful...More

Amazing cakes to cater for all dietry requirements. Big portions too! Was very busy so couldn't quite get to the window to watch the squirrels and birds. I note they are only taking bookings when they reopen in March 2018. Would definitely visit again.

This is a beautiful setting at Inshriach. Lovely fresh cakes & coffee, plus views of the red squirrels. We go every year, and indeed went twice last week (school holidays week) and were seated both times (groups of 4/5) without any problem. It is a...More

I only found out about this place thanks to Trip Advisor. When we arrived mid morning it was already packed with cyclists, walkers and a group of ladies plus a few couples. With limited space people were spilling out into the garden. We managed to...More
