The Lodge Coffee House is always a good stop for a hot drink & hot filled roll before venturing into the Hermitage of Braid for a walk. Friendly staff & good refreshments.

Lovely place to visit when walking a dog along the hermitage. Coffee is lovely. Girl behind the counter who serves is absolutely brilliant, working in that hot kitchen all day as she was when I visited this morning is very smiley and charming.
