“A delightful treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I can't agree more with the other recent reviews. Unassuming it may seem but persevere it is well worth it. The service was exemplary, the atmosphere relaxed. The wine selection was varied and interesting and the staff were generous and knowledgeable, without being overbearing. The food was tasty and portions generous.A brilliant little place.A treat.

“Superb Evening Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We had a lovely family evening meal at the Sunny Brae Hotel. The food was high quality and the service outstanding - efficient, friendly and unobtrusive.

Unassuming on the outside, the restauarnt is a lovely high standard inside.

A real find, thank you.

“Great little family run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great little family run hotel where Sylvia does the cooking and her son John is a qualified sommelier having trained at Skibo Castle. Ian is most helpful and knowledgeable about the wines and his collection of rare whiskies. A great variety of good wines and whiskies. Food is locally sourced and is freshly cooked. Try it if you haven't yet!

“Top class food, top class service, excellent wine list.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you are looking for a meal as an experience this is an superb restaurant, probably the best for a few miles around. The wine list is long with something for everyone and the staff are knowledgeable about what is on offer. The food is always top notch and presentation faultless. This isn't going to be the cheapest meal out, but is well worth spending a few extra pounds for the quality and service.

“Great food and wine, in comfortable restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We visited on a Saturday night, when the restaurant was full. The host and staff were attentive but not at all pushy.
We all really enjoyed the food, which was well presented and tasty. Choice was good and all four of us thought the food and setting were excellent.
Wine list is very good, sensibly priced and with unusual (for the UK) Austrian and German wines - both were excellent and good value.
