We have just returned from a weekend in Scotland for a wedding. As the wedding hotel was full we booked into the Ban Car. We stayed in the new rooms which were clean, fresh, very large and with a walk in wet room. There is som more rooms being built but this isn't an issue. If the new rooms are... More

Had a night out with good friends. Very busy bit really good service and lovely meal.little extras like rolls and bread and loads of veg and chips and potatoes. They just make the extra effort. Ace value and a good place. We are lucky to have it close by. But don't go often enough.

Had our evening dinner in the bar (we had our Dobermann with us) and the menu choice was superb as was the quality of meals, could not be faulted in... More

I am not a big eater and you can ask for smaller portions which is available on most of the meals. Very good value for money and recommend you make a... More

Enjoyed a meal here recently. The food was good, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good range of options for the vegetarian in the party - the nut roast was tasty and moist. The meat-eaters also enjoyed their meals, with one person commenting that the haddock morney was excellent. I would recommend the restaurant, and would... More

My rooms (stayed an unplanned extra night) were very comfortable and clean. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was fine. I also enjoyed having access to a darts board for the first time in a while. Very acceptable place to stay.
