We had a meal at Windlestraw Lodge to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Windlestraw is run by owner chef Alan Reid and his wife Julia. It is a warm welcoming place with beautiful decor and a lovely open fire in the bar..
Nothing is too much trouble.
The menu is fixed price, offering a small but superb variety of dishes. The quality of the food is superb and much of it is locally sourced.
We keep going back, just can't fault it. There are only a few tables and residents get preference so if you want to eat there, book early.

The lodge has a small restaurant and tables are only available to non-residents if the lodge is not full with staying guests.
The lodge is owned and run by a husband and wife team. The husband is the chef and the wife front of house. Both are excellent at their tasks!
The meal consisted of 5 courses for a fixed price of £90 for both of us. Prior to this we had an appertif in the lounge area, which was lovely. The meal was absolutely superb, very well balanced, good quality ingredients, excellently prepared and presented.
The wine choices were very good and varying from medium to high priced.

Without a doubt this was one of the best meals we have ever had. Combined with the good front of house and I cannot recommend the lodge highly enough.
5 stars all round
