A great menu to cover most tastes . Recommend the haggis as a starter or as part of the "highland" steak. The house wines are excellent and reasonable. Open fires great winter visitors but the hosts give a warmer welcome all year round. Great friendly service.

The rooms attached to the pub are of varying ages, some quite modern others less so but closer to the bar and restaurant. My double room which I had as a single would have been very cramped for 2 people but the twin next door was larger. The Scottish breakfast was standard and the menu for dinner would satisfy most....

We had an evening meal here, on a Monday night in May 2016. We had beef stroganoff and macaroni, both were delicious and tasty. The dining area was lovely and clean and well maintained. The hosts were so friendly and it made for a great night out.

Have stayed here 3 times in 2 years. The owners are fun and friendly. They remember us. Great food. Always immaculate. Charming and a great change from big, impersonal places. They are so accommodating. We drove longer on our return trip south, just so we could stay here on our way home. Love it.

We stayed for a night on way to England to continue our travels. The room is basic but all you need, the bathroom was also basic. The single beds had double bed doona's so difficult to move about. The WiFi is only in public areas, the owners were nice enough
