Sunday lunch was busy but we were squeezed in after 10 minutes wait in the Bar. Starters arrived promptly and were tasty. Mains of Silverside Beef and Sole were excellent and served piping hot. Desserts nicely presented. Waiting staff pleasant and friendly.

A well designed and well run restaurant that offers a range of well presented and tasteful meals. There is an early bird menu, fresh veggies served with each main plus a pleasant view of Loch Ryan.
