Lovely place to have a nosey around and a tasty bite to eat. We have been here on several occasions and enjoy tasting and cooking with the local produce on offer here. The restaurant serves tasty simple dishes that everyone will enjoy. There is also a steak house open at certain times in the year and that is also superb... More

Great steak dishes served in an old barnlike place. Simple, fresh and delicious. Needs quite some time to be prepared (40 - 50 min.) but well worth the wait. On rainy days, bring some warm clothes as this place is in the open and not heated.

Had a lovely leisurely steak lunch here. Very indulgent. Great service. Fantastic environment [but don't wear your best shoes - gravel floor which was a bit dusty]. Steak was delicious. Sharing platter starter was lovely but wouldn't recommend the fish cakes [potato cakes with a hint of fish]. Strangely had to go across to the other building to have coffee... More

Shared meat platter starter - lovely meats, but the chopped pork belly was pointless - it was just cuts of pork fat. A note for the food prep staff - it's a 'shared' platter for 2, so please don't have 3 of everything! Make it an even 4 of everything (slices of bread, salami) so it can be shared with... More

The diddles dropped in for dinner one sunny evening. We were seated quickly and informed there would be a delay with food as a few large parties had arrived just before us. This wasn't an issue and it was nice to be informed of this. The menu is meaty which suited us. We all had steaks which were delicious and... More

Stopped off here for an evening meal after an enjoyable day at Craigtoun Country Park -big mistake!!!. Ordered two sirloin steak meals with chips, one fillet steak meal with chips and barbecued ribs with chips and a portion of onion rings. All three steaks were ordered medium, when they arrived they were charred black and inside were well done, giving... More

Have driven past this place on many occasions but finally visited. A superb selection of produce that is of a very higher quality is available to buy. Fantastic fresh produce from local farms. Great surroundings and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The burgers we bought were exceptional. Full of flavour. We will certainly be returning

We've been here lots of times and always had a good experience (apart from once when they ladies' toilets weren't so good but an email to them resulted in an immediate response and there have been no issues since!). On our last visit we had breakfast - delicious!

Had a lovely lunch here today with the famous steak stew it was delicious. The ice cream is to die for. The staff are friendly and helpful. My one request ....
