My last booked table for 8 people didn't get recorded due to a new member of staff starting but when we arrived, they did everything and more... More

Found this place in TripAdvisor and thought we would give it a try, although wary due to previous 2 reviews. Need not have worried as this was well worth the effort as this is off the beaten track. Starters of lentil soup and haggis balls came with 2 rolls and butter and mains of breaded haddock and homemade lasagne came... More

Having the reviews on Trip Advisor I have wanted to come here for a meal for some time and finally had the opportunity to do so. Sorry to apparently be the first person not to rave about this place. First thing I have to say is please do something about the front door. There are tables for 2 in the... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your visit to the coylton arms. I feel I have to respond to your review as I strongly disagree with the points you made. Firstly when mrs ball booked the table she requested 6pm, we did not have a table at 6pm so I offered her 5pm or 7pm, I am aware that... More
