“Great for people, food & dogs”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

My mum and I stayed here on a Friday night on our way to the Isle of Skye. We unfortunately booked too late to have bedrooms with en suites, so we had a separate bathroom shared by the two of us, but along the corridor. The bedrooms were a little tired, but the beds were very comfortable. The evening meal was excellent, local ribeye steak was great. Breakfast was equally good and we would recommend this place for all those who take their dogs everywhere with them!

Friendly and welcoming pub with pretty rooms which are simply furnished. Excellent food and finally a place which was truly willing to accommodate both my family and our labrador. You are allowed to dogs into the bar area and you can have your food served in the bar rather than leaving the dog in the car. Rooms were very pleasant and beds very comfortable although in some rooms bathrooms are not en-suite. Bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean and we all an excellent night's sleep here. Great walks along the River Eden to ensure you have enough appetite to do the excellent food full justice. Well priced food and accommodation and very friendly host and staff. Would recommend this pub / bed and breakfast to anybody.
