We came for a light lunch before moving on to other activities. Our original order ( haddock and chips) became unavailable. Our alternative was a salad which didn't arrive. We waited.....and waited..... Eventually we left... To be fair there was no charge for our cheese scone, tea and ginger beer. Staff seemed totally overwhelmed by the fact that it was... More

We went in here because it said it had an ice cream parlour and I fancied a Knickerbocker Glory. We got seated straight away and after a few minutes the waitress came and took our order. The cinnamon scone came straight away, followed by black coffee about 4/5 minutes later. No sign of the ice cream. In the meantime the... More

We stopped here for lunch, OMG, ordered a toastie and a portion of chips, took nearly an hour, the service was bad, having said that the food was okay, the basic problem was inadequate staffing.

This place has to be one of the worst i've visited, unhygienic large chap serving. We watched him wipe his hands over his sweaty forehead, then go serve a kid an ice cream cone without washing! Shudders! Looking at the menu i'd say its far from value for the price you pay! The food we were served was toasties and... More

Lovely place, soup of the day delicious, great coffee and hot chocolate. The perfect place to stop when you have a couple of hours to kill on a lazy day in the Highlands on holiday. The girls in the cafe were very friendly and polite. Definitely worth a visit.

My friend And Intjought we would stop in 'Granton' for a light lunch. There's didn't seem to be many places that filled the bill however we decided to enter Chaplins. The place seemed quite busy with only a table right at the door. This proved very draughty and of course very busy with everyone coming and going. There were two... More

Located on main road just off the Square. Had tea and sticky toffee cake, which was wonderful. Good prices. Good spot for lunch or afternoon ice cream or dessert. People were constantly coming in. Owner seemed a little stressed, but service was good. Worth a visit.

We were in Grantown visiting family so popped into Chaplins for lunch. It is principally a tea shop, with lots of cakes, and they provide light meals. I had an absolutely delicious baked potato with beans and cheese, warming fair for a cold October day. Also good toasties and soup. Great for light bites at lunch, and cooked to order.

Thank Sal P
