Sorry yes lovely restuarant, great bar and attentive staff but my medium rare steak was over done. Yes I should have complained but as the others in our party did enjoy their food I decided to let it go.

Following the recommendation of a local, I visited the restaurant with my parents. At first I was dubious as to whether the menu would live up to the recommendation, but boy... was I proved wrong! We called in on a Sunday and literally got in 5 minutes before the end of lunch service... we received a warm welcome despite the... More

My husband and I ate at Poppies on the Saturday night and were very impressed. Beautiful hotel and restaurant, lovely friendly staff/owners and one of the tastiest meals in a long time. We both had a starter - carrot and vanilla soup which was simply amazing and the smoked salmon. I had the salmon fillet for my main and it... More

Special Birthday Celebration - family group of 6. We enjoyed an excellent meal - the menu offerred a wide choice of fresh local produce, which arrived beautifully cooked and presented.The owners/staff were attentive but not obtrusive and the surroundings are modern and relaxed. Fine dining without the inflated price tag or overbearing formality. Highly recommended!

The meals were just as they should be, interesting but not fancy using quality fresh ingredients. Nice relaxed atmosphere with excellent service.

My husband & I have dined here several times & keep coming back for more. The food is first rate as are the hosts. The dinning room is cosy with fresh table linens for a more 4 star appeal but without the major expense. The bar has an excellent choice of drinks & wines available. This place is a hidden... More

Our large group of 10 people were visiting Scotland and went there for a dinner. Location was nice, so we decided to stop there for a meal. The hostess was not friendly at all, showing her negative attitude to new clients from the time we arrived. We were charged extra for an adult finishing children's dessert (!), kid tried half...

We have visited the area twice, both times eating here and both times slightly let down. It was not a cheap meal, so I don't think there will be a third time.

Select your time of arrival carefully. Two different menues apply one up to 7pm and one after 7pm. We were handed a different menu to that of the group beside us, even though we had arrived at the same time. We questioned this and were told that we could only choose from the menu that we had been given, the... More
