Things are getting better, food wise, at Glentress and I think things are on the up in the cafe. The new Deli bar is good, quick enough and offers a good choice. I was delighted to sample a delicious vegan carrot cake which I’ll be...More

Enjoyed stopping here for a break between rides. Nice comfy couch or tables and chairs, also had the old fashioned deck chairs for outside. Food reasonably priced. Veg burger, delicious.

Lovely wee restaurant with a lot of choice. Quite roomy and pleasant and very clean. Downside - order for hot drink taken before hot food so your drink was either finished or cold before food was ready. I complained to young girl serving and she...More
