After a lot of years, met up with 9 school friends for a good old catchup & few drinks. The hotel was very welcoming friendly & a good stock of drinks. Our food was good, varied menu, good choice and service was good, perfect. A small but cosy bar, equals good atmosphere. Brilliant thank you.

Maybe we were unlucky, but we won't be back. Visited for a mid week meal. The service could not have been slower, and the steak was nearly inedible. If anyone had asked at any stage, we could hsve complained, but the waitress disappeared after (eventually) serving and did not ask how the food was when clearing up. Verged on rude... More

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.

The food was excellent. There was a good choice of starters - the fried brie and the haggis fritters were both exceptional. There were a number of main course... More
