A good choice of food all well cooked and presented. The staff are friendly and efficient and the restaurant is very peaceful due in part to how quietly the staff clear away places. Breakfasts were also of a very high quality.

This is a small hotel and the menu had a limited choice, as you would expect in such an establishment. The menu was well balanced and the dishes we had were excellent

We were a party of five so we had the chance to try almost all dishes in the menu, both for dinner and breakfast. Each of them was carefully prepared and very tasty!

Went here for dinner based on good reviews and the fact it wasn't far from craigmhor, where we were staying.

The food here was excellent, all courses. I especially loved the scallops. The staff are so friendly and helpful without being intrusive and a good wine selection too. All topped off with canapés and petit fours and coffee in a lovely lounge.
