We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your meal with us. It surprises us to hear you found our 'Catch of the day' dish to be bland as usually receive such positive feedback and can only put this down to personal taste. The duck is cooked medium rare, unless a customer requests it differently, as find the taste... More

Called on a very externally wet day after Hogmanay....lots of visitors in town but limited choice of eating places. Very busy with many locals and walkers, staff very very friendly and helpful, such a change these days. The food was hot and nicely served, at fair prices, although menu somewhat limited. Would we return, probably yes when we are in... More
