“Absolute gem!!!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Wish I knew I could review this van earlier as I call in all the time travelling to Scotland and have never had a bad experience and would have reviewed accordingly.
Where else can you get a bacon butty wedged full of thick bacon for £2.00.!! Hot strong tea and a good all round selection
You know you are onto a winner when the lorry drivers are stopping.
Good pleasant guy running it - fantastic service, food & price - and what a view to eat your purchase.

“Food's good, the banter is great.”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Having stopped here with the family for a rest and a bite for lunch we were treated to not only some excellent food but the jovial chap, who clearly also enjoys the cuisine he makes, was a font of local knowledge. Explaining to us how the road was being worked on to stop landslides and suggesting other things we could do in the area. You must try the black pudding and bacon, cooked just how you like it. Washed down with a fab, proper coffee none of your instant rubbish. All in all a great visit and we will stop again.
