Stayed for two nights. Nice comfortable hotel. Rooms very clean. The bus stop into the city is right outside the hotel and takes about 20 mins. Breakfast both mornings very good. All the staff very helpful. Will definitely be staying again.

Small room, tired bed, poor cushions. Nice bathroom, believe I was told it was the only room with a bath. This was an en route stop for us, stayed outside Edinburgh because while the price here was not exactly budget, in Edinburgh I found costs of B&B and hotels excessive. Very nice pub here, kind & enthusiastic landlord and pleasant... More

We spent one night at the Laird & Dog Inn. The people are wonderfully kind and friendly. The rooms are small but that is not a problem. The bath room was clean but there was no mat for the shower and they provided only one towel. We spent some time in their bar and it was like being in Cheers.... More

Stayed in a lovely B and B round the corner and needed a place to eat that would allow dogs. I contacted the pub via email and received an instant response, dogs are allowed in sections of the pub, which was ideal. I ordered smoked haddock and pea risotto, and my husband and daughter both had the chicken stuffed with... More

Been here numerous times for food and drinks with friends. Can't fault the food, it's lovely and worth paying the price they charge for it. Good portion sizes and fairly quick service. Drinks are cheaper as its outskirts of Edinburgh! Hope this helps :)

Stayed at the Laird and Dog for 2 nights to meet friends and have a bit of time in Edinburgh. The hotel was very comfortable still with an olde worlde feel about it.

The room was nicely sized and presented with all amenities required for myself and my boyfriends stay. The bathroom was a nice size and more than what we expected it to be. The pub was located in a well accessible place where there was a local bus service running every 10 minutes to the city centre. There was also ampful... More

I took my teenage kids along after not having been in quite a few years. Menu was good with decent choice although prices seemed high. Service was average and time between starter and main meal was very long. The quality of food was good but again seemed a bit overpriced. Given the local competition I thought they would have improved... More

Found this place just a few days befire travelling on Trivsgo. Ideally situated for us on south side just out of Edinburgh as we set off down the English north east coast after checking out. £40 per couple for a Sunday night stay with cooked breakfast was very good value.
