“Appalling service”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Been here a few times and they do do an excellent portion of stovies . But the service each time is appalling .. The staff spend too much time yapping with friends when they should be serving they are easily distracted and forget what they are doing . Too any staff doing the same job ..

“Might Be Good For Ice Cream, Not For Lunch”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We stopped here for a quick lunch to eat before heading to Edradour Distillery. We all opted for sandwiches. Paninis in Scotland are not like the paninis we have here in the states. Two of us ordered a grilled ham and cheese "panini" which was a hard hero roll split down the middle with two pieces of deli ham inside. Spread over the top but not nearly melted enough was shredded yellow cheddar cheese. The hero roll wasn't grilled. If anything maybe it was microwaved. Yuck. I didn't eat lunch. One of us in the party of 4 had a grilled lamb burger. She said it was pretty good. Another had a chicken curry sandwich. She too, said it was good. We did note that the curried chicken and other sandwich spreads were not homemade. The spreads were all in the black plastic containers with plastic hard seal tops. They are the type found in the "To-Go" section of the deli in a grocery store. Nope, didn't like this place at all.

“Great lunch, competitively priced. Good service.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch during a visit to Pitlochry. Had eaten here before to decided to head back again. Competitively priced, nice fresh, homemade food. Friendly staff. Would recommend. There's a lot of competition so let's hope this little gem continues to succeed.

“Lovely Ice Cream”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The ice cream is amazing. There is a brilliant range to choose from. I choose Strawberry and it was delicious, was tempted to go back for another one. The price was a bit expensive and scoop size was a tad small but the taste made up for it.
