Visited Whitmuir Farm on a Friday afternoon for some lunch. We had a croque monsieur and a ham and mustard sandwich both with soup. Everything was lovely... especially the honey roast ham and bechamel sauce. Couldn’t resist one of the cakes on display too! Will...More

I had a lovely peaceful stop for coffee & cake. The young waiters were pleasant & efficient. I bought some home grown tomatoes & broccoli which were delicious. In fact the best I have ever tasted. The tomatoes didn't make it home as my husband...More

I’ve been here a few times and to be honest instead of improving the opposite is true. The staff in the restaurant can be dismissive and disinterested - I ordered a simple scone today after I had been served coffee but there appeared to be...More
