What customers are saying about our lunches

“We love going to Simpson’s when we visit Inverness. Staff in the dining area are always helpful and seem well motivated. We normally have the hot meals, like casserole or steak pie. They’re always excellent quality meals and you get to add your own veg and potatoes. There are various sandwich, soup, baked tattie options too. A very pleasant and busy eating place and one we will return to when in the area.”

“Great range of food, and not too long a wait. Baking always looks and tastes lovely. Kids love the seeds and tray boxes that come with their lunch. Plenty of options for them to have too. Always lots to see walking round the garden centre and shop, and the tropical fish too. Plenty of parking.”

“Visited for lunch and was not disappointed. Fantastic choice of freshly made sandwiches, hot meals, freshly made cakes and a good choice of hot drinks.”

“This is a wonderful garden centre where you can spend a lot of time, however it is the restaurant that tops it all there. It is busy so be prepared but the food quality and selection is super. From tea/coffee and cakes, light snacks and lunch to a full meal everything is wonderfully presented, fresh and good portion too.”
