Freshly made cakes, bread, soup, sarnies, pizza, and all so very tasty. Always so welcoming, a peaceful location, great cafe and campsite. It's great they accommodate gluten allergies, kids, dogs, elderly, everyone! Looking forward to coming again.

Whilst visiting the Broch of Gurness on Orkney, (wonderful place but has no loo or refreshments) we had this place recommended to us. What a find! Friendly people, great food, delightful old building sensitively restored.
