Following my nephews christening we chose the Colliston Inn for a light lunch and drinks for our guests. The service, presentation and quality was excellent. Our function fell Mother's Day and even though the staff needed to set up for the 100+ guests due to arrive later that day they never made us feel rushed.

adore this place, nothing is too much trouble. Great for a light lunch or something more. Friendly staff relaxed atmosphere. Understand and cater for celiacs (their orange cake is so delicious). Definitely worth a visit.
