Nice to have meal that has been given some care, and not served with the usual chips and coleslaw salad. Great service, and good food.

A perfect end to a perfect week. Visited as part of a large group. Food was lovely, staff friendly and helpful and showed immense patience when we came to pay the bill in ones and twos. If I'm ever back in the area (and I hope i will be), I'll definitely call in for a meal.

Been here before, last year and both food and service are still good. A limited but adequate range of choices which are imaginative and reasonably priced.

All the food is cooked to order so be prepared to wait a little while. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Letterbox and would definitely return if in the area again and would recommend.

It has a great menu and good service. Set menu is very reasonable with lots of traditional Scottish cuisine. Always very welcoming and happy for us to bring our 2 kids.

To list a few personal favourites: The food is both traditional Scottish and innovative The filo wrapped haggis is a great touch They serve local ales The menu is wide - too much choice of wonderfulness even - covering Scottish...

If you are going to serve fish, at least learn how to fillet it! The welcome we received when we stopped in to make reservations was cool and in different.
