Tea House on the Loch (Gartcosh, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I love finding new places to drive to and I accidentally came across here when I was looking on Apple Maps…I am glad I found it!

This wee tea house is only a 20 min drive from where I stay and I took a wee drive today to check it out.

The Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea £9.50 per person
from 10am until 4pm

Mature cheddar cheese with pickle, tuna mayonnaise with red onion or honey roast ham with mature cheddar cheese. accompanied by tea or coffee and bite sized cakes with scone with clotted cream and jam.

On arrival this looked very nice, presentation different to what I have had at other places but it still looked very very nice.

I opted for the Cheese and pickles today and this was very nice. The bread was nice and thick and fluffy and the cheese and pickles very fresh.

The cakes were very nice and I enjoyed them with my coffee looking out at the lovely view.

This is the first thing that will hit you when you arrive here the view, and in the summer I am sure the view is amazing! today it was very nice, a little cloudy but still a lovely atmosphere, afternoon tea and view.

Visit Overall

I would call ahead and book as this place is very very popular, and I was lucky they had a free table.

I really enjoyed today’s visit and also the afternoon tea, I will pop back and check it out in the summer.

279 Cafe Bistro (West End, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I always just passed here when I was in the West End, and always thought it looked nice.

Today I finally took a visit and checked out what they have and the atmosphere.

The Lunch

French Toast £7
Bacon & Maple Syrup

As you all know by now I have a sweet tooth, so when I spotted this on the menu I knew I had to order this as it sounded too good not to have.

On arrival, this looked and smelled really good, so after a few quick pics, it was time to pour the syrup and dig right in.

This tasted as good as it looks, and the french toast was the best I have had and it all worked really well.

I could easily have had more of this today, but I didn’t want to come over like a pig 🙂

Mrs Wilsons of Silloth 2021 (Silloth, Wigton) : Review

The Visit

When I was a little boy my parents and grandparents would take me different places in the caravan, and Silloth was one of those places.

Today I decided to take a random drive to see if I recognised any places, and to see what it looks like now…and grab a spot of lunch.

I didn’t do any checks to see where any cafes or restaurants were so it was just a random selection, after I parked the car I spotted this place and decided to pop in and give it a go.

The Food

Eggs Benedict Our Way £7.95
A toasted English muffin with crispy bacon, buttery scrambled eggs and creamy hollandaise sauce.

I have not had Eggs Benedict in a long time, so I thought lets try it here.

On arrival this looked very good and smelled very good.

This tasted very nice, and everything worked really well together. It was nice with scrambled egg, as it added an extra texture to the dish.

Overall it was very nice this way, and I would happily have this again.

Brownie Kitkat Topped

This looked interesting so I thought why not, diet can continue tomorrow….

This was a very nice brownie, it had a nice texture to it…the KitKat was just the part you saw and wasn’t backed through it.

Overall it was nice but it was basically just a brownie.

Overall :

Overall I had a lovely lunch, and very happy I found this place. The other options nearby looked just ok, so I did pick the correct place for lunch.

If you are ever passing through or visiting Silloth I recommend you stop here and check them out.
