Lovely meals very reasonable Staff very helpful especially Gary . Falkland is a very pretty town every house is different took lots of pictures, Falkland Palace is opposite Inn could not be nearer . The Landlady (very friendly) looked after our haversacks after we had booked out so we could visit Palace. Very Pleasant stay.

Really enjoyed the whole experience. Food was very good, price was excellent 2 meals for £10 and the service good. The Bruce was friendly and in a great location. We would recommend and will be going back again.

My family popped into The Bruce Inn on Sunday 4th May & what a pleasant surprise compared to the last time we visited for lunch. This time we were greeted with a lovely lady called Sandra & the service we received was second to none. We were served before from a grumpy lady with a ponytail who smelled of cigarette... More

Would avoid at all costs thank goodness we didnt have food !!!!...... Notice to bar staff maybe less chatting and more... More

This is only a review of the restaurant: we didn't stay in the hotel. We were seeing an old friend of mine from Secondary School who lived nearby (hadn't seen him for over 20 years but we caught up very easily) and we suggested going to a pub - his choice - for lunch. It was a great choice, too.... More

Went to see Falkland Palace but didn't realise it is closed till late March. Our time wasn't wasted as we decided to have lunch while we were there. Although there are number of eateries in Falkland we decided to lunch at The Bruce Inn which is situated directly across from the Palace. It was a good decision as the food... More
