Spent a cosy Saturday night in the company of some very fine folk musicians, Cauldstane Slap, at the Allan Ramsay recently. The fire was roaring and we managed to get a seat beside it. The bar service was slow even when no-one else was waiting to be served but we were not in a hurry. There is now acoustic music... More

Made the mistake of stopping hear for Saturday lunch, no other customers was maybe a sign that we should have moved on. Ordered two haddock & chips that looked fine but tasted awful, tainted suggesting not haddock or fish on the turn. Waitress enquired if everything was ok, my wife asked if fish was haddock, waitress said yes, so we... More

Went for a meal, to find the food poor, service very very slow, and the attitude from the chef when we complained, shocking and arrogant, never be back and would advise to do the same. Shame really as it could be a great placed to eat and drink. The new owners need to really step up the food and service... More

Had intended to have dinner here, but the barmaid took my drink order and said "I'll just be a minute" before completely forgetting me and serving several other people. She then returned to the bar and i thought 'finally', only for her to shuffle some bits of paper then wander off again. This review is being written in another pub... More

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
