“not as good as expected”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

it is o.k for a snack but not good value for money, we think its a little expensive for what you get, it feels like a cattle market. Not much atmosphere just like a cafe.

“utter rubbish”
Reviewed October 27, 2010

five of us dined at gretna hall a,la cart resturant on the 26 october after our friends married earlier in the day.....awe hoped for a bit of fine dineing.....the place its self looked ok and the menu looked very nice indeed.....until the first course arrived.....king prawn skewers on a bed of dill and balsamic vinegar.......six pounds if my memory serves me correct....wot appeared on the plate was five overcooked microwaved miniscule prawns they were that small they could not have been skewered.....and the way it was slammed down on the table was damn rite rude by the sour faced waitress,who was rushing around because it appeared to be the end of her shift,and she didnt utter a word or offer a pleasent smile.appalling....aving said all that ,two of our party had a slightly better experiance with the mackeral.....on to the main course of liver in a delicate sauce, and a 12 ounce tbone steak,well my t bone had not seen a hot grill,it had been slow cooked in a oven by the looks of it,tough as old boots,think they gave us leftover veg from the weekend,it was diabolical,the liver its self was not to bad,but it was served in a heart shaped dish over flowing with gravy.....yes gravy not a delicate sauce.....and for that dineing pleasure we were charged one hundred and thirty five pounds....what a ripp off , take my word for it and stay away at all costs.....go to the hazeldine hotel just accross from the old blacksmiths,had a real nice bar meal in there on the monday evening,at a fraction of the cost....
