This is more than a cafe/restaurant although it certainly is the place to while away an hour or so relaxing with food. But it is also set on a working farm (Knockraich Farm) and right next door to the cafe is a two story interior design showroom full of material, with gifts and items to give you ideas on how to decorate your home.

Afternoon tea or coffee with home baking or light lunch or ice creams can be taken in one of the cafe rooms or outside on the patio if you prefer. We have visited twice now and there will definately be a third visit soon!

I came here today for lunch with my mum and have been on a few occasions before but not got round to reviewing it.

It was not that busy for a Friday therefore it seemed quite quiet and i felt that you couldn't talk too loud. However, I could not fault the overall experience. It is great that you can also look around the crafts.

First of all I ordered a raspberry lemonade which was fab and it is so nice to see places doing drinks that are a bit different to the usual selection. I had the sweet potato and red pepper soup with a panini. The soup was delicious and you could tell it was homemade with a dollop of craime fraiche - what a nice touch! The food came extremely quick which was good! The service was fine too. Afterwards I had some carrot cake which was so moist with a generous portion!

Can't wait to return.

We stayed at a nearby caravan site and saw the signs so we stopped for coffee. We were made very welcome, coming from a farming background I spoke to the owner. This is a working dairy farm and the milk is used to make their own ice cream in there own ice cream making facilities. Fresh or what? The restaurant is very clean the service is excellent and the staff will stop and talk to you. The food is high quality and the price is not exorbitant. This place has been open about seven years and a lot of money has been spent on it. The views are out of this world. Well worth a visit.

We were over at Culcreuch with friends at a lodge and decided to go for a walk and came across the Courtyard cafe at Knockraich Farm. We were made welcome by the owner of the farm when we enquired about his olive tree. The whole place seems to be family run and the standard of service was very good and the waitress was very helpful when the ladies were picking their ice cream which they unanimously agreed were great. A couple of us stuck to cold lagers which hit the spot also. A great little place.
