I visited here with a colleague for an evening meal and was pleasantly surprised. The beer selection was good with some guest ales, the East Coast IPA and Twisted Thistle IPA went down well. We both had the rib-eye steak with chips and it was very tasty with a juicy, well seasoned steak. The overall experience, including the friendly staff,... More

We were a party of 'seventy-somethings' on an overnight stay, and as we departed I shouted over my shoulder, " and we'll give you a great write-up on Trip Advisor ". That really says it all ! Well not quite, as to put things into context, you are entitled to know of our expectations, as, if you are looking for... More

Returned here after many previous happy visits over the years. The specials board & menu looked most appetising & we were starving after a nice long family walk. The steamed mussels tossed in spaghetti, tomato & bacon sauce sounded delicious but unfortunately the mussels floating in chopped tomatoes straight out the tin with raw garlic & spaghetti was the most...

Went for lunch with a friend, yummy fish chips and peas served with home made sauce tartare, very good indeed, will be back soon. Handy spot for a look at the shops, only two or three but makes for a lovely afternoon. The man who engraves your glass is just round the corner and its all good.

Walked into this hotel looking for a cooked breakfast after many long miles driving whilst we were on tour. Sunday 19th April at 11a.m. Woman at the bar tells us that breakfast is not available. When we asked "already"? We were snapped at in no uncertain terms and told" did we not know what was involved in preparing lunch.!?" Quite... More

My husband had called ahead and arranged champaign and flowers in our room (nothing was to much for the staff) we had a beautiful clean room with a gorgeous view of the harbour. The room was modern, spotless... More

I had lunch here today and have to admit the choices on the menu were good and the quality of the food fine. Both my partner and I opted for the fish and chips and we weren't disappointed. Only gripe I would have was that we were sitting in the glass area at the front of the hotel which was... More
