But except for that, it was all good here. Friendly service, great soups, and sandwiches were nice. All in all a good cafe.

We visited twice in 1 week and had a great experience on both occasions!
The food is not "flashy", instead it is well cooked and presented, with attention to detail. Both the restaurant and the more informal "Shed" (the bar area to the rear) offer comfortable areas for food - the latter being dog friendly.
They have a range of local special beers which are well worth trying - as long as you are not the nominated driver!!

Two people on our way to Balmoral on a quiet Wednesday, looking for a simple but good lunch. Don't be put off by the "pub grub" and "pie night" signs: the food is as good as the location, our waitress was very friendly and made sure we were in time for our Castle visit despite a three course meal. Prices are slightly high bit so is the quality of the establishment. Will visit again.

Great food from an imaginative menu. We love a chef that can compose dishes that go well above the norm. We would eat here seven days a week if we could.
