The food is not as good as a few years ago but times and Chefs change, Menu selection was good and the pre Bar drinks and atmosphere were great, very sociable. good value for money.

A year later and back for another wonderful Burn's supper at the Houston Inn. The restaurant at the back can only seat about 50 covers so it was a bit, well cosy shall we say? However the entertainment and the food by chef Iain Halket was fantastic once again this year. His Beggar's Purses, filo parcels of haggis & neeps... More

Poor, poor. Food not hot and service absolutely shocking. 30 minutes to get a drinks order to the table and 25 minutes for a starter. When main courses came there was a gap of around 10 minutes or so until the side of onion rings came to the table.

30 members of the Hillman Imp Club descended on the Houston Inn for our Festive meal and it was excellent. The friendly efficient staff made us welcome and this was accompanied by some excellent courses. All members enjoyed the experience and want me to book it for next year. We all would highly recommend the Houston Inn for atmosphere and... More

My wife and I had a rare, kid free day so went for lunch. We have tried everywhere else in the village and have heard good things about the Houston inn. Friendly staff, good menu, nice decor. Not overly impressed with the range of beers on tap (others in the village have draught Italian beers) but settled for bottled Peroni.... More

We were visiting family in Houston and had dinner in the Inn a few times. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food exceeded our expectations so we returned again and again. We understand they also offer accommodation so when we're back up in Scotland we'll definitely book.
