The generous breakfast portions, such as a filled croissant with mushroom and scrambled eggs, could easily be shared between two people – but get your order in quickly as breakfast ends at 11am.
Light lunch options, featuring home-style cooking and plating, include vegetable lasagne, or try the grilled chicken breasts with lemon and herb, served with a side salad. A weekly Sunday roast is served with lamb, chicken, potatoes, rice, vegetables, gravy and mint sauce.
Parents will appreciate the kids’ menu with burgers, chicken nuggets or toast served with chips.
Scones, pies and cakes are among the dessert offerings.
Local wines, beers, ciders and spirits are on offer. There’s also a wide selection of teas and coffees.
Service is average, neither bad nor spectacular, and the waiters are friendly.
Located in the Norscot Manor heritage site, the view from the restaurant would be beautiful if the lawn was green and beautifully manicured – but it wasn’t. Still, it makes for a great family outing on a Saturday thanks to a large play area for children and the availability of colouring paper and pencils. As the name suggests, the décor features garden furniture such as steel chairs with cushions, but there’s no inside sitting area so it’s not ideal in cold weather.
A generous breakfast in the garden, preferably on a sunny day.
