Have now been twice this year and plan on making this our regular eatery. The food on both occasions was excellent, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. This is a real local gem, with the food being sourced locally, if you haven't been it is well and true worth a visit.

Took the family here for dinner at the weekend, great surroundings, great welcome from mine host and very good food from the extensive, inexpensive menu. Don't miss it but do t book when I want a table!

Had dinner hear a couple of times recently, and the food is always top notch. Won't get better food in the area in all honesty. Menu is large and varied, staff are attentive, polite and helpful, and the atmosphere is always relaxed. Can't praise this place highly enough. Recommended.

My husband and I went in for dinner. It was superb. We enjoyed ourselves so much we went back the next night with our 2 daughters and their husbands. We were staying in Alva for 2 weeks visiting from Canada. I am Scottish, and one daughter born there so it was a lovely visit. Highly recommend this restaurant
