“overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

setting for this café is really nice, set in the castle ground, it also has a table licence. offers breakfasts till noon, light lunches with toasties, panninis, salads, quiches and usually a pasta dish. baked potatoes, sandwiches, soup and cakes and scones. Being local I find it quite pricey for what it is.

“Coffee & Chat & Fame”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Woodlands Center, great place to come for a lunch, coffee/tea/ etc. or if you need something a little stronger on a blustery Stornoway day, [it is a Licensed Café] here you can warm the cockles of your heart with the tipple of your choice while you sit and enjoy the scenic surroundings

I met Maggie MacKenzie aka 'Fiona' [her character from the Gaelic soap, Machair] see pic I added, she looked rather surprised when I asked if I could have my photo taken with her [I'm famous at last] Thank you Fiona, for allowing to have your photo taken with an absolute stranger :)

“Great for a quick, tasty inexpensive lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

It's unpretentious but you'll probably enjoy the freshness of the food, the views, and the ambience. They close quite early and don't do dinner.

“Good food in nice setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

The restaurant is set in the Lews Castle Grounds, across the Inner Harbour from the town centre of Stornoway. Food is good and with generous helpings.
