Nine of us had dinner here last evening in this very pleasant restaurant. The a la carte menu was quite extensive, supplemented by a specials board. I had Kircudbright scallops followed by chicken breast stuffed with haggis - both well presented and very tasty. The service was good and unobtrusive. A real find!

very good restaurant which was busy even on the Sunday night, Food was very good and very generous portions which we couldn't finish. High quality and at a reasonable price but it would be important to book as was busy.

Visited here on a Friday lunchtime. Although this restaurant is in a quiet village location, there were plenty of other diners (which I always feel is a good sign) They have a varied and extensive menu. Two of our party opted for the Panini's. They were exceptional ! Tasty fillings, ...accompanied with homemade chunky chips and a side salad. Both... More

The staff here are always welcoming and somehow manage to find room for us even at short notice. The food is varied and always of a high standard. As a vegetarian there is usually 3/4 mains for me, although the majority of the menu is meat. The desserts are lovely too. A bit more expensive to some places but overall... More

We have been regular customers at Fantails for the last 19 years and must say that we have always enjoyed the excellent food from the large specials menu and the classic menu. Fantails has a warm and friendly atmosphere helped by the cosy open fire for those winter months. On our latest visit (to celebrate our wedding anniversary) my husband... More
