We enjoyed good quality food today. Homemade soup, cakes and pies, traditional Scottish fayre. The welcome was friendly and service excellent. We will return another time :-)

If you are exploring this beautiful region then The Smithy makes a perfect stop for a good cup of tea and a brilliant selection of obvious home bakes. Rustic - in a nice way. Good Country service and good country fair. Whats not to like.

First day of the season for the cafe but not our first visit. Great food cakes and friendly service. There's also a gift shop area with local products. Seating outside for sunny days. Cosy interior and home cooked food. We will be back!

This is a lovely small café that we visit often. Most of the time the food is great and the staff are always helpful and friendly. On one visit, the food wasn't great, but ever since I can't fault it and we keep going back....More

We always visit whilst in the area and found it to be as good as ever. Delicious quiche and salad: salad dressing is excellent, cheese and haggis toastie and a child's portion of macaroni cheese were all greatly enjoyed.

Delicious food and cakes. Great menu choices as well as a 'Specials' board. Lovely friendly staff. Best quiche I've ever had the pastry just melts in your mouth and the raspberry and apple cake is to die for. Thank you.
