Like many reviewers, we have had very mixed experiences here in the past under the old management, but the new owners are making a go of it. From booking a table to the food and the service, it was what we would wish for. The new table layout gives it more space. Pub food well-cooked, with some interesting vegetarian options,... More

We booked an evening meal at the Alan Ramsey Hotel for 26 December. The Table for 4 was booked a week in advance and we travelled from Edinburgh, a jouney of around 15 miles, as it was meant to be a special meal with friends we had not seen for a while and wanted somewhere that would have a special...

Like other reviewers .There was two choices not available. When the food came that we ordered .It was very basic . I had fish and... More

Appalling Hotel. Room basic at best with springs sticking out of bed, but the real problem was with our room situated above the bar. The overnight staff decided to play music loudly late into the morning. At 2.00am I went down stairs to ask for it to be turned down, to be greeted not by apology but a surly response... More

I stayed at this 'hotel' enroute to The Open at Muirfield (a good 40 mins drive away). Due to the event being held in the area, I was informed on booking.com that the rate was higher than normal. I would be interested to know what the normal rate was as I paid £75 for 1 night bed and breakfast for... More

The Allan Ramsey is very mediocre. A limited menu with two items not available reduced the choice. There is a banner outside proclaiming the place is 'Under New Ownership.' This has been there for well over a year to make you think you are about to receive something new or different. That is simply not the case. The food was... More

Adventurous as to what is still available on menu. Been here summer and winter and really have become attached too the cozy surrounds. Menu can be a wee bit hit or miss depending on availability but always service with a smile.Fair choice of beer wines etc and when the fire is roaring it is an exceptionally cozy wee bar, lounge,...

Awful place-don't even bother going in and wasting your money. Staff including the owners are rude and drinks are flat. Grotty sitting area. Rank. You would be better staying in Edinburgh or going to West Linton or anywhere but there. It's such a shame since it could be lovely.

Had Christmas Lunch menu today (12/12/12). Good starter of smoked salmon and prawn parcel. Also good Christmas Pudding with custard and Taylors ice cream. Dismal turkey and trimmings main, which might have been forgiven but for the PERISHING cold bar, coupled with desperately slow service. Surely the management of a country pub should realise that customers coming in from sub-zero... More
