Didn't get to eat here this time as it was closed. I also noticed it was up for sale. The last time we ate here the food and service was average.

Tucked away in the tiny town of Inveraray this is a little gem. As you walk in you are greeted by a lovely and friendly host. Uber friendly. Seated there is a great menu. Prices are great. Quality of food is sumptuous. Menue is varied! A must visit.

Stopped off here by chance for lunch during a weekend away. Had some excellent carrot and coriander soup, bacon butties and a hamburger. Very good and hearty portions. Service quick and attentive. Would certainly go back.

Stopped in for lunch - £34 for 4 including soft drinks. Haggis and cheese toastie, Texan panini, chicken & blt bap and a fish tea. All were freshly made and fine, nothing fancy, and given the prices of the other places in Inveraray was pretty average. Service was good. It does have baby changing facilities but there's no room to... More

We popped in here quite late on afternoon, the staff were accommodating, the was a great choice of food and drink on offer. We were not disappointed, we were even allowed to take our dog. Inside, a great help.
