“Decent food served in pleasant surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The service received was excellent from start to finish. I had the trio of Scottish puddings for starter and really enjoyed it. This was a decent sized starter and a good taster for things to come. There was plenty of choice for main courses and I finally plumped for chicken filled with mushroom. This came with an adequate amount of peppercorn sauce and was a really nice dish. Having previously had the pate to start followed by another chicken dish, I can again vouch for the quality of the food on this occasion. I had eaten here as part of a hotel package deal, but trying to remember the menu I would say you are talking about £40 for a two course meal with a drink. The mains are all approximately £11 with starters just over the £5 mark. I have not tried desserts, but remember they did have a decent selection on offer with plenty to choose from.

“Not as good as you would expect.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Firstly, the waitress that served us was lovely and we couldn't fault her. Sadly I did not know her name! But the food wasn't that good and the restaurant was freezing cold. There was a group of us and we all ordered something different, the ciabattas were okay but nothing special, and the fish was nice but had tasted better elsewhere. The menu however doesn't inform you of what your going to get. The menu said a Cajun chicken burger with sour cream and fries. I asked for no sour cream as I don't like it which was fine but when it came it was smothered in melted cheese which is not stated on the menu.. The other burgers state that there is cheese on them but not the chicken one. Nor would I expect a chicken burger to have cheese on it! So it was sent back and when came back out it wasnt cooked properly, obviously rushing to serve me but I wouldn't of minded waiting. The prices are reasonable and the staff all seemed nice, possibly a little slow especially since it was very quiet. Don't think il be back, can get better food elsewhere.

“Disappointing food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Duck and chicken both overcooked, but service from Lindsay and Neil first rate. Would have been nice if they had offered a complimentary drink or knocked off the £2 surcharge we paid for ordering the scallops (said on menu they were king scallops but only one was a king the others were a queen and a baby). Breakfast however was beautifully cooked and presented and not at all greasy.
