We eat here quite regularly and have yet to be disappointed. The food is excellent and the portions fit for a hearty appetite. If you are hungry this is definitely the place to go. Service is very good and all the staff are friendly. Would recommend the Cornkist without hesitation.

The food was served quickly and was hot and nicely served with a few nice twists to the way the vegetables were served. We all ate something different and none of us could fault our... More

Like the Chip Shop sampler starter and the Highlander burger (burger with topped with haggis and black pudding served with pepper sauce). Portions were pretty large and... More

There is disabled access to the restaurant, but a visit to the toilet involved exiting by the same external door, going around to the back of the hotel and re-entering via the back door from the car park. To get back to the restaurant, the reverse was necessary. The... More
