A proper little gem and worth going a good way to enjoy. I did - twice from Gedintailor and once from Pornalong in the space of a fortnight. If I'd been any nearer I'd've been there more often.

Visited here from the Camping and Caravan site up the road, easy access from carpark, restaurant through the bar and into some side rooms, very cosey and nicely spaced tables. Menu was good with plenty choice. Food was excellent and arrived in a reasonable time. Service was very good with cheerful and helpful waitress.
atmosphere was very friendly, we had a chat with another couple on the next table who were from Belgium and were touring Scotland on a Motorbike.
the room was well heated (it was raining and blowing a gale outside) and comfortable.
Toilets were clean.
I would definitely return here if I was staying nearby.
well worth the visit.

The food here is absolutely superb. We were first offered a choice of delicious home-baked breads, including a herb, garlic and sea salt bread that was the tastiest bread we'd ever tried. The food was getting towards the 'haute cuisine' threshold, and was therefore suitably creative and posh, verging on a little pretentious (depending on your tastes). Salads were served with spicy edible flowers, and portions were quite small with fancy presentation. This was reflected in the price, with most main courses costing around £20. Four people eating two courses came to about £130. That price range means that, at least for me, this is somewhere that you would go for a special treat rather than an every day meal. Especially when the amount of food on your plate makes it difficult to justify the cost! (though maybe I'm just a little uncultured!). The food was fantastic, and the decor was a classy, stylish take on a traditional Scottish restaurant, with oak furniture and attractive artwork depicting local scenery adorning the walls.

For a completely different take on the Edinbane Inn, go through to the bar areas after your meal and enjoy a relaxed, pub atmosphere quite at odds with the fancy cuisine down the corridor! Here great real ale is served, along with a good selection of Scottish single malt whiskies. There are live traditional music sessions twice per week, with acoustic guitar, fiddles and bagpipes. We played cards, soaked in the atmosphere and tapped our feet along to the lively traditional music. The musicians were very talented and we were impressed to find out that the chef and one of the waitresses were moonlighting as our entertainment.

Though we left the Edinbane Inn with our wallets a little light, we had a fantastic night all round and would definitely go back for a special treat, or perhaps just go to the bar to enjoy the live music.

Beautiful food and great service at the Edinbane Inn, last time I was here it was in the previous owners hands and was a good place to eat and drink, but now is even better than before. Smoked mushroom and Pesto soup?...Wow, best soup I have ever tasted!!

One of the best meals during our time in Scotland.
Simple, well prepared food. Nice staff. The mussels were amazing as was the roe deer with risotto special they had that night. By the time we left, all the deer was gone.
I wish we had known about this place sooner. We would surely have been repeat diners.
