“Big Disappointment”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

We were staying locally in a nearby B&B and decided to stay local for our supper. We arrived to a busy restuarant at 8pm on a Saturday night. I would say the menu was a bit limited in the main courses so opted for a chicken dish which was fine. Steak was ordered for my partner, medium done but arrived with blood on the plate and very, very pink when cut open. this to me was rare but now as time was nearly 9pm, my partner starving decided to keep it. I t was a very tasty steak non the less. It seemded to be the drinks that really got them stumped though, i asked for a Coke, through it came, after tasting it and deciding it was flat asked for another explaining why, through came another, flat again, i then asked for a fresh orange as they surely couldn't get this wrong, you just pour it of of the bottle, throught it came and guess what it was fizzy, by this time not sure whether to laugh or get angry summoned a more mature waitress explaing what was wrong. I told her it was fizzy, that fresh orange was flat and was a pale orange rather than the deeper orange of the fresh kind, off she set not actually believing what i was saying i rather think, to come back to tell me the gas was flat on the draught coke and they gave me lemonade in my orange. All in all not a very sucessful first to this establishment and when returning to the B&B at a later dat, which i might add got a brilliant review from us, will not be eating here !

“Friendly and Efficient”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

We don't eat red meat so the menu was limited but we enjoyed evening meals there on two occasions nonetheless. Staff are very friendly and service was as efficient as we would wish.

“Wonderfull fish meals, wines and deserts”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Lovely smoked haddock, salty just right, smelled great and tasted godly.
Sauvignon was excellent - and this is not a tiny imperfection of just this restaurant, but no restaurant we´d visited in Scotland could serve wines (after openning a bottle the waiter should smell the cork-if right and hand it to an ordering person to smell it, pour a small amount of wine in a glass of an ordering person to inspect, smell and taste it - if all right, pour to all drinking people at the table - just a half of the glass or even less, not to the top!!!!!!!!!!!!! and to the "taster" as last).
Why not to the very top? When wine is poured to the very top, there is no room in a glass left for developing the special aroma, and the wine warms up easily and quickly when full glass is filled.The wine looses its taste and sparkle.

“There are much better places than this.”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

Food and service are average. We ordered a grilled goat cheese however the cheese never got to meet the grill. Also the slice was too thick. As a main course we ordered the baked chicken. The chicken was ok but some of the boilec potatoes were cold and the vegetables were merely cooked. It is not worth your money.
