Good sized portions & great value. Although the Blue Ball is off the beaten track it's well worth the journey. The views across the countryside... More

The menu here is simple but extremely effective. Good food in massive portions. Tips are a baked potato or burger with toppings, or haggis fritters. Friendly efficient service. Great garden for the summer. A real treat :-)

Perfect Sunday lunch, everything was cooked to perfection. Vegetables not been overlooked, roast potatoes were just perfect. Ohhhhhh my god their ginger sponge pudding was so delicious. I didn't even fill guilty having the pudding as it worth every extra calories. Well done to all of you

We have lived in the area for 8 years and have been regularly visiting this fantastic place. We have three children and although we understand that this is not advertised as a family restaurant...the staff have always made excellent provisions for our boys. Great food, great gardens and lovely staff! X
