As a family of 7, we have been visiting this restaurant at least 3 times a year for the past 10 years and previously had always been satisfied. The recent visit on Burns night 2015, which we had been saving up and planning for 3 months, was quite a shock to us all. We sat down for a meal at... More

Just had our Xmas party here. They offered us a separate room so that no one else can here our ''jokes''. Food was up to our standard , brilliant ambience. parking was a bit tight though inspite off a massive car park. Certainly worth a visit.

Lovely food and very attentive service. We were a party of 12 and they gave us a separate room which was ideal so we didn't disturb anyone. Although we were in a separate part of the restaurant we were visited regularly and had everything we needed. We mostly had roast dinners which were cooked well with crispy yorkshires and veg...

I knew I was going to arrive late, however, I was made to feel very welcome, and after a very quick and efficient check in I was show to a tale in the restaurant. Very friendly staff and the food and drink were fine for the price. I would certainly stay here again if away on business.

I have been to the golden balls inn twice with my husband and toddler. Service has been incredibly good, and the atmosphere and décor is just the thing to warm you up after a cold winter's day. It feels special enough to go to for an anniversary dinner. Food has however been very mixed. The positives: The best made traditional... More
