incredibly over priced, wait staff do barely anything, food barely above average. the section for ordering food is split in two so depending what you want you essentially have to make two orders! ridiculous.

We came for breakfast on my b'day. I had full breakfast which was nice. We have been before for coffee and strawberry tart. I like coming here but I always find it a bit over priced like the rest of their products in the shop.......More

The food here wasn't bad, and the portion sizes was good too. However, the price left a very bitter taste indeed. I was flabbergasted to have paid over £20 for three baked potatoes and three drinks. Honestly disgraceful.

With stunning views over Inverness and the Black Isle, the award winning Glass House restaurant is located within Scotland's best destination Garden Centre, Simpsons, just off the A9 on the outskirts of Inverness. With ample parking, great access and family friendly, it's the perfect place to come with friends, family and colleagues. Choose from our superb daily specials menu as well as our regular home made soups, sandwiches, paninis and baked potatoes. We cater for all tastes and requirements, as well as providing a great selection for children - including our Little Seedling lunch trays. You'll be spoiled for choice with our delicious home baking, made daily in house by our team of imaginative and creative bakers with a selection of fresh daily scones and cakes to fresh cream meringues and tray bakes. All of our ingredients are fresh, seasonal and tasty, using locally sourced and Scottish ingredients, where possible. On weekends, we also have a selection of local musical artists who entertain our customers and add to the already friendly atmosphere. Before or after your lunch, be sure to pay the rest of the garden centre a visit, with our award winning plant area, home and garden departments and artisan food hall.
