  • The elephant house: Don't miss the best Baked potatoes

    The birthplace of J.k Rowling as everyone knows it. this place is fantastic. The food is of great qualty, the atmosphere is cosy and warm with polite staff. The cafe has an excellent view of the castle at the back and the coffees are to die for. I give this place 5 out of 5 rating and full satisfaction.
    The owner now i believe is David and if you see him make sure u say hello, you'll be rewarded i gurantee. The former owner as of about 1-2 months back was Iain Fraser who set up the elephant house and ran it for a long number of years. David at the time was the manager, some mistake him for 1 of the owners but Iain was the only owner of the cafe. he pops in and put of the cafe now and then and be sure to say hi to him because if you do, you will most likely get for your next visit, a free coffee and croissant or something equivalent.

    Hope this ahs been useful

    Have a traditional Scottish breakfast (egg, bacon, sausages, potato scone, black pudding, breakfast roll and marmelade) for £5.50! Continental breakfast available. Breakfast served 8am-noon Mon-Fri and 9am-noon Sat/Sun.
    They also do lunches and desserts.
    Small, but cosy, old-style interior; friendly staff.
    I got this recommended from another VT member, and I gladly recommend it to you!
