Just returned from yet another lovely dinner at The Sunny Brae. My wife and I have been going there since 2003 with the quality of food and service being consistent throughout. With the younger generation, son John and his partner, Rachel now in charge, and a new style à la carte menu, the transition has been seamless. Looking forward to... More

We enjoyed dinner on two occasions at Sunny Brae. It was such a good experience, we went again. Salad through dessert, the fare was wonderful! We found the staff to exceed expectations, they were great! My husband raved about his herring starter. The dining room is lovely, with a view to the water across the road. We highly recommend Sunny... More

We had the dream combination of a stay at Sandown House (see separate review) and dinner at Sunny Brae. While external appearances might be slightly deceptive, the service, food and surroundings were of the highest quality. And the sea view is a bonus. The excellent wine list was astonishingly good value. We had the most delicious meal of local produce... More

This was a small, more upscale restaurant - the sort of place you would go for a special occasion. It is located across the street from the water - a nice view. They have a glassed-in patio where you can sit and have a drink before dinner. The meal was excellent; in fact, the best we had while traveling. The... More

This hotel is very clean and fresh. We came only for an evening meal but the food was so good that we will definitely be back again. It is a family run establishment and they really treated us well. Their list of whiskies to complete the evening was extensive.

We enjoyed the food in the restaurant and the beautiful view from the lounge but for whatever reason we have waited some minutes longer than expected before we could take places
