“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Just had a fabulous meal at The Linny. A big thank you to Simon and the staff for making our family lunch such a memorable occasion. Nothing was too much trouble and the waitress was lovely and took many photos for the family album for us. Great food, amazing location and friendly staff. We will be back soon.

“This is how to do it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

After the restaurant at our holiday accommodation started to decline we were pointed to The Linny. It's off the main track but not that far away from the main roads. There is even a sign to it on the main road. The food is excellent. A varied menu as well as the usual staples. Everything was cooked to perfection and well presented. The staff were very efficient and polite and the barman, who I think is one of the owners, was very efficient and attentive. The food is not cheap but it is equally not expensive. I would sooner pay a little more to ensure the quality than pay less and skimp on the quality and then see it as a waste of money. The portions were hearty so you might struggle to finish a two course meal let alone a three course one. We didn't book for lunch but were able to get a table. I would now recommend booking on all occasions. In the current financial climate there are many pubs shutting. The Linny is an example of how to do it properly.
