I had the vegetable risotto, my dining companions had the lamb and the steak and the mussels. It was probably the best meal we ate in Scotland. VERY delicious food, wonderful service and outstanding cooking in a relaxed environment at affordable prices. Highly recommend.

Hi. It is safer to book if you want to eat in the restaurant, especially at the weekend. We also run the same menu in the bar where you don't need a reservation. The number is 01855811940 if you want to book in advance 😀
