Service is prompt and friendly and there is a small shop offering snacks and news.

We stopped off at Peggy's for breakfast after an all night drive up from London. The food was fantastic, all freshly cooked while we waited. Considering I had mentioned that I did not need any baked beans with my Scottish breakfast, I was slightly surprised that I had to pay extra when I was asked if I wanted tea or... More

Stopped for lunch. They had run out of soup by 12.30pm. Terrible service, terrible food and terrible coffee. This used to be a quaint cage with delicious cakes but standards have gone down massively. The canteen staff are rude, abrupt and unhelpful. Try the Finavon hotel next door instead.

When we travel south and return home on the A90 this is a perfect place to stop for a meal or even for a short break for tea or coffee. We have always found the staff, food and service first class. Always very clean and tidy and serves a great range of delicious food.

The chocolate sponge cake that you buy to have a home is heavenly, as are their Victoria sponge and Lemon Sponge. Lovely polite staff

This restaurant / cafe is on the A90 Nr.Forfar Scotland. It has been refurbished to a high standard, and a godsend if trawling the A90, which has miles and miles of nowhere as convenient as Peggy Scotts
