“Pleasant visit and tasty homemade food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

This was a stopover for morning coffee on a tour of the island. Considering the time constraints, we had great service, tasty homemade cakes and shortbread and endless tea and coffee, which was most appreciated after a brisk walk. The staff were polite and helpful. If ever we come here again we would revisit.

“Almost 5 star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Our meal was fine - chowder starter, good seafood platter, interesting Westray crabmeat wrapped in slightly tough plaice (veg and salad fine) and lovely elderflower jelly and raspberry dessert.
Good basic wine list and my favourite Scapa 16 year old malt.
Two waitresses good if a bit haphazard and only reason not excellent is the view of Dounby crossroads will never be of cliffs or rolling sands. Surrounding countryside typical
Of Orkney.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Came here for lunch - twice - as it was so good and superb value. Fish and chips huge portion and very fresh. Crab sandwiches are delicious. Scarra brae burger is a must! All home made. Good, friendly service.
