    Afternoon tea.

    What a lovely place, especially on a sunny day, to enjoy an afternoon tea. I had mentioned that four out of five of our party were celebrating birthdays but this was not acknowledged. Food and service were very good.

    Lovely restaurant staff very attentive sweet treats on tray could have been more imaginative but overall enjoyable experience perhaps add some more savoury items and a little less sweet treats.

    Afternoon tea

    Nice to feel welcomed knowing our arrival was expected. Food was nice delighted scones had heat in them. Just felt it could have been more traditionally Scottish perhaps different bread. Loved the wee surprise pieces of toffee hubby was in his glory. Mum enjoyed her birthday treat and that was the main thing
