Really good tasty and varied priced food to suit everyone

Really good value food and varied menu. We ordered food from a set cheaper menu and was not disappointed. My husband had seafood pasta and I had a beef curry dish... Just delicious

This restaurant has recently been taken over and it was very disappointing. The service was flow and food 'okay'. Hopefully in time this restaurant will improve.

Popped in for Sunday breakfast and although the Steak Breakfast was tempting , I opted for the traditional Scottish instead. Took a while to arrive but when it did, it was clear that it had been cooked to order as it was fresh and delicious. Quality ingredients, cooked to perfection was the perfect start to the day.

Have been here twice and we have been treated well and food, although there is a little room for improvement, was generally very nice. The management is new and deserve a chance to shine, it is nice to have a lovely Restaurant in West Linton, alongwith the Gordon Arms, it would be a shame for them to be left empty... More

This is our second visit here and I'm afraid it's not much better than the first. The food is mediocre at best. Such a shame as this could be a little gem. Please, shorten the menu and cook things from fresh !

Rang the morning of Father's Day. Not a good sign that we got a table that same day and on arriving the place only had 2 other tables full. Food was mostly terrible. Cullen skink so thick you almost needed a knife and fork. Mashed potato was a frozen pellet type. Frozen mixed veg. Gammon was not even the size... More

We stopped here for a coffee on the way to the Whipman activities - mainly the dog show. The staff were very welcoming and the place is unique and so comfortable. It is an original bakehouse with the original oven on display with the 'paddles' hanging from the ceiling. It was quiet when we were there. Coffee was first-class and... More

We had had mixed reports of this restaurant before we went. However, we found it to be a good restaurant to go to for Sunday lunch. The service was excellent and very friendly. The menu had a good range of dishes and the portion sizes were reasonable. All of us enjoyed eating there and would happily go back.
