Eating next door is so convenient. The food was great, a good menu and good portion sizes. Fiona and Alan are good hosts.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

The pub looked like it was under going renovations so we were directed to the public bar. It was very lived in with no other patrons however the meal was excellent including a tender and well cooked slab of sirloin steak. Quality of food surprised us.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

After several recent servings of deep-fried scottish food, it was refreshing to find an affordable steak meal and hosts who were willing to swap our chips for vegetables! Cooked well, good value for money. We were very happy
