Dropped in for lunch. New owners but still a very pleasant stop off. Missus had prawn baked potato that was humungous. I had the haddock. Both freshly and delicious. Could not have a pint as I was driving so had to settle for an Irn Bru. Full strength mind not diet!

If you are in the area or only passing through either on the way to or from the ferry. Please make time to stop at this little gem. A warm welcome awaits everyone and the home made food with everything so fresh is outstanding. A hidden gem:-)

Stopped off here in our motorhome. Good choice on the menu and the food was plentiful, well cooked and very tasty. Very helpful staff. Howling weather outside but cosy in the bar area. Noticed a beer garden at the back which would be nice during warmer weather. Handy location for ferry to Ireland.
