We stopped in for a cup of coffee after a long day of sightseeing at Bannockburn and Stirling. We loved the decor, the friendly staff, the view out the window and the glorious sunshine. Great coffee, lots of art and a wonderful place to visit.

We needed to stop for a late quick lunch and came upon this great little place. Small, with a friendly staff, this little restaurant had fine dinning flavor for a fraction of the cost. I would recommend it to anyone passing through.

Visited for high tea with friends on Sunday having had a nice dinner here a few Fridays ago. Great choice of main meals with the high tea and the cakes were excellent. Very reasonable price at £12.95 per person. We'll certainly be back!

This is a great place for a lunch stop. The soup is always excellent - clearly made with fresh produce and by someone who understands proper flavour. We also love their scrummy home baking - always difficult to chose from their lovely selection. We have...More
