A busy Saturday night with some signs of stress on service but we were under no pressure to leave to turn the table over until they really needed to after our early start. The food was of a good standard and certainly my choice on what was a new menu was tasty and the meal over-all was reasonable value. There... More

Called in by chance on our way home from holiday, found a good place for lunch in a convivial atmosphere. When I said I was gluten-free I was told it was not a problem. We only had a light lunch but we would certainly visit for dinner if in the area.

Warm welcome from Ian and Sue set the scene for a great dinner out with friends. Something for everyone in the menu and some tantalising daily specials. Full restaurant, which is always a good sign, and the chatter going on created a super atmosphere. We'll definitely return soon!

We stopped to grab a late lunch/early dinner on a Saturday afternoon whilst traveling to England from Edinburgh. We found this by accident. We originally stopped to eat at an Inn on the main road, but they had stopped serving food between the two meals. So we wandered down the street. They were friendly and accommodated us quickly. We found... More

Had one of the best meals ever at The Old Bakehouse, great atmosphere and wonderful hosts, everything was just first class and the place is just hugely interesting with lots of artefacts all around. Nice open fire was on in the bar which was very welcoming, although August, there was a wee nip in the air so much appreciated the... More

We had a stunning meal here. Ian and Sue are so welcoming and have everything running like clockwork. We were served a lovely welcome drink in the bar with some nibbles by the cosy fire, before being shown through to our table in the busy dining area. The food was excellent quality, it arrived quickly and the presentation immaculate. Gnocchi... More

We discovered this restaurant on TripAdvisor and were certainly not disappointed. On arrival we entered the small bar area welcomed with a roaring fire which was lovely on a chilly July day! The host was creating cocktails (alchemy as he described it) and the welcome could not have been warmer. We sat and enjoyed a magnificent cocktail and ordered from... More

We and another couple enjoyed a meal here last night. The ambience and friendliness were lovely, the service was a bit random, but the food was great and that's what counts. We'll be back!
