“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

So much for the poor food in the UK. Breakfasts and dinners were very good. From how many people ate dinner there you would think it was the only restaurant in town.

“Great beer and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Staying in a local B&B, in need of a meal and refreshment, came across the Cairn Hotel. There was a good selection of local real ale and I chose fish and chips from the menu. I sat outside and, despite being told there was a half hour wait for food, the food appeared quickly. The fish and chips was served with mushy peas and was well presented and tasty. The homemade chips were dry and crisp, the two pieces of fish nicely battered. The waiter asked if I wanted another drink and quickly appeared with another which was put on a tab. Good service, good food and great beer.

“Good food, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We ate here two nights and the first was excellent, the second a little dissapointing in comparison but still good. On the 2nd night I had chicken tempura as a starter, but it was chicken fillets done in tempura batter and because the fillets were too big, it was still pink and bloody in the middle. However everything else was perfect so hard to criticise as I suspect this was a one-off. Very reasonable prices and faultless service from all but one of the staff, even when they were very busy. The bar man was also very helpful and friendly when we stopped in for a drink. I would definately go back.
