Bar area I found to be very comfortable and I was fortunate enough to visit during good weather so the deck out the back was glorious. Good food and a good pint ticked the boxes on that side of it. (Menu was getting overhauled when I stayed, limited selection for that reason but I coped) Breakfast was presented well also?... More

Revolting, dirty and disgusting. Rooms are dated, carpeted bathrooms. Bar is fairly modern but poorly maintained. Flies everywhere, broken glass at entrances, manager is extremely rude and clueless. Food was cheap and nasty! Crap presentation skills and definitely served under 75c. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!!!!

Popped in for a wee bite and the Lassie behind the bar recommended the steak pie and I thoroughly enjoyed it,really tasty and filling. The chips were really nice too,light and fluffy on the inside and the vegetables were nicely done. My wife had the Cajun Salmon which she also enjoyed.

Staying for a night with our dog pet friendly hotel so don't expect 5* rooms. The bar down stairs is really busy not the best of pints wet glasses maybe but pretty flat. Nice and modern though but the rooms leave a lot to be desired £500 on that room it would be decent but there is just no care... More
