This is my favourite place to eat in Dunbar... The staff are always friendly, welcoming and attentive but not intrusive. The food is excellent and freshly cooked to order. Prices are very competitive.

I have frequented the restaurant of this local hotel on many occasions and it is one of my favourites in Dunbar. Generally busy, the food is also available in the bar. I've called it a good coaling station because it's a great place to get refuelled. The menu is good and is 'pub-grubby'. Prices are generally good. There's a good... More

Staff very friendly and accommodating during every visit we have had in here. Very child friendly and reasonably priced food. Enjoyed the offer including two sizzlers and a bottle of wine for around £30.

Fabulous food great choice and lovely service. Definitely to be recommended. Good portions and value for money. Nice setting close to the sea. Lovely place for special occasions. My parents are 83 and the food was just perfect for them. My Dad loves fish and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed

This is quite a casual place with good pub grub. The menu is a little confused ranging from stir fries to lasagne to curry - it would be a bit better if they just did a good old pub burger and chips! I had the stir fry which was good but the meat a little tough... The waitress was particularly... More

If you are looking for a comfortable place that serves excellent food then look no further. Staff were excellent and very friendly. The place has been refurbished to a high standard. We were six, four adults and two children and booked at short notice. A gym of a place.
