Cafe
“This is a great place for lunch before hopping on the ferry to Rothesay. Most of the dishes served use produce from the butchers shop which is attached to the cafe. The produce is of the highest quality and both businesses are owned and run by Nigel Ovens and his wife Helen. There are several awards on display inside the adjoining shop which are a testament to the high quality of produce available. My own personal favourites being - Haggis and Black Pudding! The menu has a good selection of dishes ranging from breakfast items to a complete lunch. Soups are served daily as well as a nice selection of scones and cakes. They also have a takeaway service available. ”
