A surprise night away for my birthday, it looked good and ticked so many boxes - good price £70 for a room, looked like nice food and a cosy bar. The room was a bit small, tv right beside the bed (dunno how they thought we would watch that!). Rab apologised for the state of the shared bathroom (horrid decor but clean). We had dinner downstairs, haggis ball - greasy. Smoked Salmon and Prawn cornettes
Prawn Marie rose wrapped in smoked salmon served with brown bread and salad. - basically prawn cocktail in salmon - greasy salmon too - no taste. Rack of Lamb
Feta-crusted rack of lamb gently roasted in a cherry tomato sauce, served with seasonal vegetables, potatoes - overcooked and dry rib, vegetables overcooked too - i heard the table beside me complain about the dryness too. Fillet of Salmon
Pan fried with prawns and a lemon butter sauce - lovely moist salmon - hurrah! Breakfast the next day was toast and tea or coffee with a fry up - not the usual flakes etc on offer. We were handed out a fry without asking if thats what we wanted - it had a tomatoe, some mushrooms swimming in black sauce, two slices of bacon, an egg and a sausage ( cheap tasting sausage) no tattie scone or black pudding !!. Not any offer of any more tea/coffee. Rab and Susan are very nice people on a personal level but I wouldn't rush back to here.

We're sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. The room you stayed in is one of our smallest rooms, we do have much larger (ensuite rooms). The position of the TV (for that room) is also not ideal. Realignment of the bed may provide us a better layout. The TV's themselves are to be replaced over the winter with larger flatscreens.

I agree, there was a mistaken assumption over your breakfast and this is being addressed. A breakfast menu is being developed as part of our ongoing commitment to improved customer service.

The bathroom you used is one of the last remaining rooms that we have not redeveloped. It is scheduled for demolition and rebuild over the quieter winter months.

With regard to your evening meal, I will take this up with our chefs, however, I wish you had mentioned this at the time.

We were staying at Newmill Farm B&B just down the road from here. They suggested us to come and we are so glad we did. From the time we walked in and when we left...service was super. Rab & Susan were both very friendly and upbeat. The food and drinks were great. Susan had told us how they have redone all the work in the place themselves. It looks great. The rooms upstairs are being worked on as well. She said it was going to be a B&B once it was done. It will look great. Keep up the good work.
This is a place where some locals come to eat & drink. Great people.
If you are ever in the area....please do stop in and grab a bit to eat here. You will not regret it.
Thanks again Rab & Susan.
