What customers are saying about our lunches
“Stopped here for lunch today and although it was very busy and we needed to queue to get a table, the food was home cooked, fresh and very tasty., the service was efficient and the restaurant was clean and the social distancing was effective, the staff were friendly and helpful. We’d definitely eat here again. The garden centre is amazing with something for everyone, well worth a visit.”
“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.”
“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.”
