I am a very regular eater here as the food is really well presented, cooked and priced. The staff work hard to maintain this hotel as a very family friendly establishment. And don't forget, Thursday is the local quiz night :)

Really nice homemade food would recommend this place for food. This was our second visit and was pleased with food and service, the menu has something to suit everyone. Staff are friendly enough and helpful. We had the sirloin steak special which was delicious and well priced at 13.95.

Our New Year's Day visit with friends was the reason for eating here. The dining room is very pleasant, although not overly large.

Spent three nights in this recently refurbished hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food was very much better than we would have expected and all the staff were exceptionally welcoming. An excellent centre for touring East Lothian and the Lammermuirs.
