Wonderful food in a nice homely enviroment.

We went here to celebrate my cousins leaving to travel Australia for a year, we had lovely homemade food and lovely wine, the boys enjoyed a pint!!! We stayed all night and were made to feel so welcome. Lovely atmosphere, lovely food and lovely staff.

We ate breakfast here twice and found it to be very poor quality. The lukewarm buffet food was clearly of the budget variety, dried out and very greasy (cheap, fatty sausages, tasteless, dried out bacon, greasy fried eggs which I'm guessing were battery-farmed as they had no taste either, and warmed up tasteless and tough tomatoes. The toast was ok.... More

The restaurant was spotlessly clean and had a happy, peaceful ambiance. The seating was comfortable, tables elegantly set and the cooked Scottish breakfast was delicious. For me, an added bonus is that no animals are allowed on the premises as I am allergic to them.

Ted and Dot have got it all together and we are the lucky recipients. Decor is delightful, food is wholesome and impeccably presented. Like I said earlier the whole experience is magical

Very good service and great food! The owners pride themselves in providing good food in a nice atmosphere. They have achieved both. We would recommend.

The restaurant is open to the public only for weekday suppers, and there is but a single entree on the menu. But there is a nice selection of accompanying dishes, and an excellent bar!

The fillet steak was brilliant with the pepper sauce and their home made mouse for sweet. Everything I have tried on my two visits have been delicious and well prepared.i can't believe how excellent the food is here and really reasonably priced for what you get

I have done a separate review of the accommodation (which I didn't stay in but looked fantastic) Food was delicious. Perfect service, lovely friendly and chatty owners, and I even got a complimentary glass of wine. I would highly recommend.
