Stayed overnight for a wedding anniversary weekend and everything about the Inn was truly outstanding (weather excepted!!!). Fantastic welcome, great place to chill and relax and looked after by the hosts (Toni and chef Mike), supported by a great team in the bar/restaurant. Would love to go back again. The food was excellent and the presentation superb. Thanks to all... More

We only happened to go in for a drink and a bar snack but were immediately made welcome by the staff. It was throwing it down outside - "Storm Frank" was doing its worst. However this place was a great sanctuary from the elements. lovely and warm. We managed to have a look around the ground floor layout and reception... More

Was there with a shooting party. It's an old building, but in renovating, they've kept the integrity and charm. All rooms have a gun safe which is handy. WiFi was pretty poor. The food, while 'plain fare' was excellent, and the staff were warm and friendly.

Service was good, food was faultless, atmosphere was great, staff were very accommodating of my 2 year old, and very friendly. Portion sizes were generous & the menu is varied. Will definitely be back the next time we visit. Can't comment on accommodation as we only ate dinner here.

We have eaten at the Brigands many times over the years, and always thought that although it has a lovely cosy ambience, the food was mainly pretty average and a bit over-priced. However, on a recent visit we discovered that a temporary manager and chef were now in charge and the quality of the food has improved hugely. The first... More

Five very hungry walkers arrived after a lovely day out to be met by the very miserable face of our attending barmaid. In fact, she wasn't attending to us at all but had her head over a pint of Guinness for another customer, giving no words of greeting or making any eye contact for well over a minute as we... More

Stopped at the Brigands Inn for Sunday lunch on the 18th October. We we're not disappointed. Service was a bit slow but the food was excellent and staff were very friendly. Will certainly stop here again.

I arrived for a 2 night stay with my owners who were part of a shooting party based at the local and world famous Brigands Shoot. Frank and his team really made me feel welcome and immediately gave me lots of strokes, offered me a towel to dry my paws and some water and a biscuit to help me recover... More
