Been meaning to visit for a while and recent good reviews convinced us to go. Food lived up to expectations with generous portions and beautifully cooked fish. As the chef was doing everything it did make us wonder how it would go, but everything served fairly quickly especially as there was a regular influx of customers.

Really enjoyed our meal here! Had heard loads of reviews over the years all praising the quality of the food and it did not disappoint. Things are a little unorthadox here, its not your usual 'formal' restaurant and we loved the atmosphere and laid back service style, other diners recommended dishes to us, James came out and had a wee...

Had a great meal in the Cabin last night. Hadn't been for a while but heard that chef James had returned and thought we would rekindle the love of his food. Everyone enjoyed their food. Best steak pie I've had for ages and sticky toffee puding was a good substitute for the bread and butter pudding which was my all... More

Well maybe not so quick. Great food however was let down by poor service. Chef was doing everything, greeting customers, barman, clearing up and cooking. He was a busy man but the food was fantastic. Please get some help and look after your customers not your takeaways.

The Cabin is a restaurant I've meant to visit for many years. After a recent closure and re-opening I thought, now is the time. Externally it's very plain and the dining room again is plain with a low ceiling and probably only takes about 28-30 diners. The food, there is the star, it's very good, especially coming from a small... More

Another lovely meal in the Cabin, so glad to have discovered this place and that is is back under James' ownership. Food was delicious, lovely wine and great service. There were a few regulars in and everyone was chatting away - thank you for a great evening.

Went for lunch last Friday on a Groupon deal which was offering 2 main courses for £6.50. We also got a starter of soup of the normal Lunch menu which was really nice. The steak pie was one of the best we have had for a long time. The restaurant is a bit out the way from the "trendy" part... More
