Stopped for lunch on way to ancestral village of Aird. The service was fast and friendly. Great lunch with lovely home baking to follow. Very good value for money. Thoroughly recommend for a light lunch. They also do evening dinners.

Not a lot of places to eat in Lewis or Harris, but this place in a wonderful location tucked between two hills. Quite a welcoming sight as you travel. The soups, cake, coffee and tea is exceptional. Affordable, creative and quite a treat!
