Not been here before but were delighted to stumble across such an establishment.We were very lucky to find a table at short notice having not booked and the staff were extremely accommodating. We both had the scallops to start which were cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced. There was a slight wait for the starters but it was well... More

We stayed for one night. The accommodation was comfortable and well maintained. The food in the restaurant was delicious (puddings amazing!) and the staff, both in the restaurant and bar very helpful and accommodating. I would certainly go back to stay.

Very helpful and friendly staff, new toilets and very clean. Had to wait 40 minutes for the starter of garlic bread but it was huge and excellent. We had a ribeye steak and Lamb, it was very tasty followed by the chocolate pudding. Would recommend a visit.

We were a party of 6 and enjoyed our lunch The reason I have down marked it was because of the very poor choice of mains. Three of us had fish and chips only because we did not fancy any of the other main courses. Disappointing as I am sure if the choice was greater it would have been very... More

We have occasionally been for a drink but not food. We checked on Trip Advisor and all positive. Welcome and starter good, long wait but assumed this contributed towards being relaxed. We are talking a one hour wait for the starter plus more than that for the main! Main came and was less than luke warm. A good 5 minutes... More

We live in melbourne and we consider this our local. We love it. Food, service and wine/beer is great. They can't do enough to help. Only downside is they don't have a nice beer garden but everything else makes up for it. Wish we could stay here but as we only live over the road that would be silly lol

Usually go to the Dragon at Willington but they were fully booked. Hardly surprising as it's an excellent night. However , Harpurs Burns night was just as good. The food was amazing and very nicely accompanied by a selection of carefully chosen whiskeys . The entertainment was well suited and authentic with great audience participation creating an authentic atmosphere for... More

We have been travelling to Scotland for over 25 years and have never been to a 'Burns Night' before. Well it has all changed thanks to this great establishment. We arrived to check in on Sunday afternoon, 25th January. When we walked in there was a great atmosphere, and things just got better. The beer was just how it should... More

Fillet of beef with braised hotpot terrine executed really well. Amuse bouches delicious. Overall well looked after and worth the very reasonable... More
