The first night was a disaster, the bed was like a ploughed field, metal springs being felt thro the matteress. No sleep and too late to complain. We complained the next day at breakfast.

Wonderful food at this establishment, despite a fryer not working. Small range of starters and main courses, but just divine. Good food served hot with great service. Would recommend and will call again.

Booked a table for nine adults for lunch which they could happily accommodate, despite having another large family group in celebrating a birthday.

Stroganoff, fish and pies all went down...

Lunched here with a friend and the menu choice was great, prices reasonable for good quality food. The staff are, mainly, friendly, professional and approachable. I did check the menu to see if I could order a smile from the waitress but sadly it wasn't on the menu and she wasn't for giving any away! Other than that, great.

The service was both quick and pleasant and the food was very well priced and prepared. My wife...

Although staying in the area we have never ever gone their for lunch but because of some poor weather decided to stay local and give it a try.

Really excellent pub we found through TripAdvisor. My son and I were craving pub grub and this pub is so close the Heriot-watt campus it was so easy! Delicious pies and beer with really nice service. All servers were friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. My son had a huge brownie for dessert too!

I was warmly greeted when I arrived and there was a pub quiz going on in the bar so there was a nice atmosphere. I was taken to my room which was nice as my case was heavy! My room was a good size, all the bits and bobs you'd expect and nice and clean - the towels were lovely...
