Albeit I live within five miles of the tearoom, this was our first visit and most enjoyable it was. The tea room came recommended and certainly did not disappoint. The food could not be faulted in any way and the staff, very helpful. We have already talked about out return and know what we what we want to order.

We (two couples) stopped here for a light lunch. We all had various soups - which were very good. We had ordered sandwiches to be served with the soup, but Carolann seemed a bit forgetful. So after asking again we shared two rounds of sandwiches between the four of us, one of us had a carton of juice and three... More

En route home from Lochgilphead we called in for a light lunch early on a Sunday afternoon. Very busy and noisy but the Lentil soup was tasty as were the coffees and scones. Staff very pleasant and attentive as usual. On paying our bill a glance at the 'tip bowl' on the counter noted a maximum coin value of 20p.... More
