“Tiffen Run”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

The friendly Staff, and the home made baking. Especially the scones.


Could do with more parking facilities.

“Great Scones!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We stopped here on the way back from Inveraray. We probably would have eaten a bigger meal but, despite being far away from any town, they don't accept card and we had spent our last cash that morning. It turned out there is a cash point in the neighbouring post office, but sadly we didn't spot this until after we'd left.

That aside, we were offered some fresh scones that were still wamr. they were delicious and filling and, with the coffee, a very fair price. The coffee wasn't up to the quality of the scones, but it certainly did the job and we'd happily return here again.

I'm surprised that a previous review said the premises needed attention? We found it very clean and, while some might think the china cups and decor a little old fashioned, we welcomed the atmosphere it provided.

“In need of refreshment?”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

Conveniently located for the weary traveller in need of a break and a cup of tea, but the facilities are sadly in need of attention.
