The service was excellent. I only had a drink but they served it to my table with a smile. The dining area and views are idyllic.

“Nice little place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Was very impressed with what was in essence a cafe attached to a museum. Food was fresh and very good quality. My daughter was impressed as they had a wide vegetarian range. Well worth a stop for lunch.

I had expected great things having read previous reviews but this was nothing out of the ordinary. The staff were lovely - loads of them but the food was disappointing. Would not rush back as other better places in the locality.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

A delightful café attached to the shop and museum, next to the church and overlooking one of the burial cairns. The coffee is very good and the home made cakes are delicious, and the portions are huge! The lunch time menu is excellent, the food is freshly prepared and served with a smile.
