Judith Glue Real Food Cafe and Restaurant in Orkney

OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK ALL YEAR ROUND - SHOP EAT & DRINK WITH US - eat till late in the evenings from June to Mid September.
The Real Food Cafe and Restaurant is situated at the back of Judith Glues shop - an Aladdins cave situated opposite St Magnus Cathedral . It is open 7 days a week and from June till Mid September evening meals are served  until 9pm.  
Everything is cooked in the open kitchen headed by Kirsty and her team of great home cooks. You can watch your food being made right in front of you while enjoying a glass of good wine or local beer as they have a premises licence .
Judith's ethos is to use as much local fresh Orkney produce as possible as these days customers want to know what is on their plates and where it is sourced from locally. The eating atmosphere is all about feeling like you are sitting in your own kitchen at home ! A specials board changes twice daily in the Summertime to cover lunch and evening meals and choices can be anything from local Dressed Crab to hand dived local scallops or Orkney fillet steak with Highland Park Whisky sauce. Much of the produce is available to buy in the shop along with Judiths collection of Orkney Knitwear and loads of many other interesting things you can even shop while you enjoy a meal !
Customers can even have a try sitting on an original Orkney chair ! 
The premises are also licenced for entry to young children and they are very welcome, Sigurd the wooden rocking horse who is now 30 years old !! He is always a popular attraction for young locals and visitors.
