Easy to find, lots to see and do. Plenty of carparks. Lots to choose from on the menu and all tastes great. Playground metres away for the kids. Great wee place.

A pleasant out of the way cafe, near the holiday park. Wheelchair accessible. Not a huge range of food but menu on wall offered more.

We were impressed by all our meals. The Fishermans Baskets are very generous and well cooked, the pancakes are better than mums homemade, the Salmon Rosti devine and the fish burger delish. We expected to wait 20-30 mins but food came out very quickly and...More
