Dinner here with a friend recently. Served by Callum who was very polite and helpful. The food was lovely, well presented and good sized portions. Good atmosphere with little background noise which allowed us to have a conversation without shouting. Highly recommend. We'll go again.

When we return to Scotland, we'll be going back because of the excellent service from Stephen and his staff. Our room was nice, we felt completely comfortable, breakfast was stellar and we... More

An enthusiastic and welcoming staff, comfortable bed and good facilities, and an amazingly substantial and appetising breakfast which will last you all day if you have room for it all. Excellent choice of restaurant menu should you want it. The drinks were good too. And a fuel station right next door! What more do you could you ask for. We... More

Previous experiences previous owner were not great so when I came my expectations were low. But I was amazed at the transformation. The food was amazing. The mac and cheese is Delicious and big portions.The kids enjoyed their lunch. The servers are so friendly. This is now the only place I'll eat when I visit.

I went here with a friend on Saturday 11/04/2015. The place was really busy which is always a good sign. Once seated our orders were taken and the food delivered to our table without any delay. The starters of creamy mushrooms and potato shells with bacon and Lockerbie cheddar were really nice and both were served with a freshly chopped... More
