“Lovely meal will be back ”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We ate here as part of the beer festival, so glad we did. We had mussels, garlic bread and garlic mushrooms to start my mushrooms were as hot I'd I like but still nice. Mains were 2 x steak, and a pork belly. The pork was huge but nice all the same, steak were cooked to perfection. Sweets we had cheese which was all local and sticky toffee pudding which again was good. Good meal,lovely view and large range of drinks

“Superb food!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Had a look through tripadvisor for a place to eat that offers more for non-meat eaters and decided on this one, partly through the reviews and partly from their menu and were not disappointed. The food was indeed superb and the waitress helpful and attentive. It would not be out of place in either Edinburgh or Glasgow. After the meal we went through to the bar to finish off the evening and it was great too. What more could you ask for??
