Was attending a function and staying overnight. Arrived in dismal weather after a long drive to a very warm welcome from all of the staff. The bar/ dining room was old school and the perfect antidote to ubiquitous " modern" hotel dining. Good selection of draught beers and spirits. I felt at home with the many locals who were popping in regularly. I was dining at the function but would gladly have eaten in the restaurant from the a la carte menu or the particularly appetising sounding specials. All produce is locally sourced with steak being a speciality. Whilst sitting at the bar I really enjoyed the vibe of the place.
Room very nice with proper antique bath large enough to have a real soak. Free wi fi, coloured TV.
At function had lamb carved at the table , no mean feat when catering for 160. Meat perfectly cooked and vegetables more interesting than the same old same old.
Grilled full Scottish breakfast a great way to start the day.
Susan and her staff doing a great job. At breakfast I spoke to some regulars from Sheffield who confirmed my views
