Judges comments - September 2018

'I absolutely loved it here! The staff were so helpful and friendly and you could tell they know their stuff! I felt very safe eating here and would definitely recommend it. We'll definitely be going back again as it's an absolutely gorgeous setting too, you can see right over Edinburgh!

The food was delicious! I had a haggis and cheese panini which was incredible, a small cup of ham and lentil soup which was really good and I was convinced into trying some of their GF chips, which they were correct in saying are some of the best out there!

As this is a cafe in a country park, the options are things like soup, sandwiches, toasties, baked potatoes etc but they also have homemade burgers and vegetarian/vegan burgers, almost everything can be made dairy free too. I also asked if their vegetarian burger contained chickpeas (which I can't eat) and they have one version with and one version without. I was so impressed that they even have a gluten free and vegan haggis!'
