We stopped for a late lunch at the Old School and the service was friendly and efficient. We tried the slow cooked beef shin sandwich and the blue cheese and walnut salad.

Comfortable atmosphere with very good food and a nice wine list. Unpretentious, but enjoyable and much "fancier" food than a lot of Scottish restaurants, whose menus can get a little stale. Staff was friendly and accommodating

We always eat early and find that this is a good time for us, not too busy and the service is always good. Menu is added to by regular 'specials' on a blackboard and we never struggle for something to choose.

Nice varied menu. Very friendly staff though they pounce when you first walk in to ask if you have a reservation, which are essential We made ours in April for a July vacation. The specials board was across the room. A second one would have been useful. Great Gin and tonics.

After the visit to the castle, we stopped there for a lunch; very welcoming staff, we had the duck sandwich from the specials of the day and fish and chips with tartar sauce: everything was good.
