If you need a break while heading up, or down, the A90 between Dundee and Aberdeen, this is a good place to stop. Drinks are reasonably priced and the scones were very tasty with a lovely crispness to the outside. The tray bakes and other temptations looked delicious - perhaps next time as we didn't have much time to spare... More

Food really good, for a farm cafe the food is better than a lot of restaurants. Really recommend peppered steak baguettes and burgers. Cakes are good although they could be a bit smaller. Atmosphere is not relaxing very noisy and as there are a lot of windows so it is often too hot and blindingly bright however we go as... More

We came here for my mum's bday at the end of January, and there were five adults and four children in our party. There is a wide choice of food and it is all nicely prepared. There are lots of waitresses. It is an extremely popular place to come for either lunch, tea/coffee and cake, or an evening meal. There... More

Excellent soup, haddock and LARGE meringue! Very busy restaurant so a little on the noisy side, but the service was amazingly quick. The staff must be getting sprinting training! All good stuff! Well stuffed!

My mother had Cullen Skink soup and my sister had a cheeseburger. A tuna sandwich was also ordered for my niece. All the meals arrived quickly and... More

Wanted to take my sister for a nice lunch. We arrived and were directed to a dirty table, which I cleared myself onto the table next to us. We were looking at the menu and several members of staff were milling around looking wholeheartedly uninterested in just about everything. Anyway, despite all of that, we were trying to read the...

Had a lovely lunch there last week. I had a smoked haddock dish and my husband had mac and cheese, both dishes were excellent, service was quick and unobtrusive.

Popped in to pick up the best strawberries ever which are grown on the farm. The food is excellent and the restaurant needs to be booked in advance to be sure of a seat - it's always busy!!!
