It took an hour to be served 3 starters which consisted of soup and salads. During our visit, the smoke alarm went off twice and the extent of the smoke stung our eyes and airways. Overall, there seemed to be a long wait for an expensive meal that wasn't great. Our group would not recommend.

Excellent choice of local produce cooked to perfection. Great menu with a Specials board to die for and just to top it off they have a superb selection of local beers and whiskeys. Very reasonable prices, an ideal eating establishment for any occasion.

This property is very welcoming; warm, cosy, beautifully appointed and offering a wide selection of food and drink, including some interesting beers. I have been for both lunch and dinner, and each was good in its own way; for lunch, the soups and sandwiches filling and tasty, and in the evening one can enjoy a more extensive menu. Either way,...

We went for lunch today , the staff are very welcoming, it was beautifully decorated for Christmas and lovely and warm. The choice on the menu was huge and our meals were delicious, the sticky ribs were the best we have ever tasted, even the presentation of our little boys (aged 2) meal was excellent! Only wish we had booked... More

Had a great stay here. Good value and owner was a lovely chap who made me feel at home and welcome. The food was excellent, dinner and breakfast. The steak was beautiful and stornaway black pudding was sublime. I was so pleased I had some more with my full Scottish breakfast. Would definitely come here again and wholly recommend it... More

Lunch was great and food amazing especially the sweet but it took 1 hour for our 1st course to arrive. Manager said only 5 tables at a time were served as he did not like to put pressure on kitchen staff, but food was great when it arrived.

My partner and myself decided to try this place after seeing good reviews and although there was a varied range of meals on the menu for meat eaters there was only one vegetarian option. This one option was not for me so I asked the owner if they did veggie burgers. He replied no but I could have the one... More
