This place has the best food I’ve tasted in Fife. Everything was so fresh and tasty! Also has the added bonus of taking away some special cheeses for eating later. A must for all visitors to the area

We stopped by to sample the cheeses and see the cheese making process. It was a wonderful stop. We sampled 2 bleus and a cheddar and enjoyed hot ginger beer, cheese scones, and oatcakes as well. One of us loved her Victoria sponge, too!

Very quiet on the morning we visited. Had coffee and cakes. Service was friendly. Nice little gift shop area. Didn't see any cheese production, and not sure I would make special trip to revisit.

Came for lunch, nice menu and the gentleman serving us was top notch. Efficient, freindly, and smart. Let down by heaps of dog poo in the outside grassy eating area, and tatty benches and tables on the grass, a lick of varnish would help. Also,...More
