Our latest review in The List give you a good idea of what we are all about!
This review is taken from the current (2012) edition.
It isn't completely about the ambience inside this converted late-1800s church; the food and coffee are good as well; but it is no doubt its USP. A wrought-iron spiral staircase leads up to a cosy, laid-back space where the view is of a mesmerising live climbing show; unless you choose to sit farther back under the impressive stained-glass window.
From a small kitchen, friendly staff offer an array of soups, sandwiches, starters and mains (and energy bars) but the choice is far from predictable: haggis cakes come with a sun-blushed chilli mayo, there's salad with home-made coleslaw and mains include couscous, salmon with ginger and soy noodles, and a tempting venison burger.
Top-notch too is the invention among the sarnies: duck egg mayo with morcilla (a Spanish black pudding with a hint of chorizo) and whisky smoked brie served with house red onion marmalade and salad are two fillings that stand out.
