We stopped for a night after the Scotland rugby game and found it a great wee place to stay, food was good and the atmosphere was even better. The bedrooms have been refurbished and are comfy and clean Thank you

I recently stayed here for a few nights a week as I was working in nearby Penicuik. As other reviews have stated, this little hotel was recently refurbished. There are only four rooms but each one is modestly appointed and more than satisfactory. Below, there is a decent pub with a roaring open fire, good food, and pleasant atmosphere. The... More

The Allan Ramsay Hotel - Newly Refubished!!. Visited 27th July 2014. Lovely, warm welcome. Nice rooms and comforting food. Thank you for looking after us at a 'difficult time'. The Martin Family, Norwich, Norfolk.

I stayed here recently as I was working nearby. Reviews were a bit mixed, but I gave it a go anyway. Very pleased overall. Rooms were decent and clean, but overall a few minor niggles need addressed. Bar and staff were pleasant. Food was good if a little pricey. I will definitely be back when working in the area again.... More

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
