After deliberating for a while, my family and I decided to stay here for a few nights this week after I had private messaged the reviewer below (Ballamorie) after their negative review to ask a few questions about the place and the area (and they were very helpful). They advised that it was modern Inn and well decorated so we... More

I have to say I was a bit concerned when I read some recent negative reviews on this restaurant, but I had already booked for my husband and I for our wedding anniversary. We visited on Saturday 30th August, when we arrived we were greeted by a couple of ladies in the bar area one whom took our name and... More

Very hostile, unhelpful, unfriendly, miserable staff. The food was passable but very basic. The couldn't be bothered to seat us, give us menus, take our order or get us a high chair. We had to keep going to them even though it's apparently table service not self service. We asked so many staff número use times for a high chair... More

Unfortunately on Sunday we were overwhelmed with people who hadn't booked and we tried to accommodate everyone and in so doing our usual high service standards may have slipped a little. We have reviewed our staff rotas for Sundays and are confident that this situation will not be... More

They were too busy setting up tables for another function!. Ie christening. Had to ask for all condiments apart from salt n pepper. Surroundings lively. Carvery looked lovely but... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Whilst it is nice to receive overwhelmingly positive reviews it is also important for us to know if we get it wrong. On Sunday our biggest problem was that we had the busiest day for people who hadn't booked for many years and in an attempt to accommodate them all... More
