I have been here a few times and the food and service have been fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. I asked for a main course portion of a smoked duck salad and it was no problem. We will definitely return.

Visited a few times now and never been disappointed! Good homemade food, friendly staff & good value for money! Had chicken & haggis, sticky toffee pudding & a strawberry daiquiri last night and all were delicious!

Have had two wonderful meals at this restaurant but was really disappointed with the meal I had on Tuesday evening. My friend and I decided on the festive menu having turkey with all the trimmings. We ordered two drinks and sat back to await our meal. There were two other tables with two at each occupied at this time. Twenty... More

We visited here a while back on a whim whilst passing through. It was a beautiful day so we opted to sit outside. We got our drinks (cola for me, lager tops for hubby) then waited 45 minutes for our meals despite there only being another table of 2 across the patio from us and no one inside!! We didn't... More

My wife and I met a friend for lunch here and my recollection from years ago was that this was typical village pub. How wrong was I! Nice and clean dining area which has obviously been modernised recently with an excellent choice on the three menus provided. Full, set and snack, so however much you want to spend or eat,... More
