We enjoyed a lovely meal at a reasonable price. Excellent service although the restaurant was very busy. Thank you Tina and Paul for an very enjoyable evening. We will enjoy the doggy bag! At busy times it is advisable to book.

I had ham, eggs and chips which was amazing the ham not to thick, and eggs perfectly done. My mum had fish chips and mushy peas which she said was delicious! Complements... More

Stayed at the Grouse and Claret for a week whilst work was being done on my new kitchen, The staff and Management were very attentive always on hand if you needed anything, Nothing was to much trouble. Meals in the restaurant were very reasonable considering its a hotel and service was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend going.

Came here for lunch with my goddaughter during the week. We were greeted with a friendly smile from the host, and although busy, we were found a lovely table very quickly.

We (a party of 6) visited the Grouse and Claret twice over the Easter weekend, once for lunch and once for dinner. On both visits the staff were really efficient and friendly - a real credit to the place. I had a chicken club sandwich for lunch which was excellent. I can't remember what the others had but they all... More

Good food. Wide range of choices. Good prices. Let down by them forgetting to serve us at the end - they'd clearly forgotten all about our dessert order. And sooooo many screaming children.
