Not only good food - BUT great food. The Restaurant was exceptionally well furnished and very comfortable. The mine host was a delight and the service was extra-ordinary. Take a tip from me - book NOW!

We stayed at the hotel and ate breakfast and dinner here on both days and found plenty of choices on the menu. My partner had the haggis bonbons in a cream whisky sauce for starters; they were that nice he hasn’t stopped telling people about them! We both had the roast chicken and black pudding tower; it was delicious and... More
