“Expected more”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

A building with some character in a pleasant situation but sadly lacking in any sort of atmosphere.
The food was very average and somewhat lacking in volume. There was a definite feeling of a lack of staff with one in the dining room and one in the bar/lounge which resulted in rather slow service, not without mistakes from the kitchen. We were a party of 6 and this was the fourth restaurant we had tried in the area. All others were fully booked. There was only one other couple in the dining room which perhaps speaks volumes for the reputation of the restaurant. It could be so much better. Even paying the bill took an age due to lack of staff. Unlikely to return.

“Bladnoch Inn”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Food was faultless and quantities were really good. Overall we were really happy with our meal but the time for our food to come was a bit behind what we would have expected for early evening. Serving staff were all polite but may need to put a rocket up te kitchen staff from time to time.

“Lovely food and helpful staff”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We came here for a meal after advice from the locals. It didn't disappoint, the food was lovely. When I asked for the pepper sauce (which is normally served on a steak) with the chicken breast burger, but without the bread - they were more than happy to oblige. Would definitly eat here again if in the area.
