I ate here on Mother's Day and last Sunday. Can't rate this highly enough, Great food and absolutely excellent value for money. Nice wine and I believe they do one of the best pints of Guinness. Well worth a try.

Good place to stop for a drink, great to sit by the open fire and have a pint, and watching the rugby. Change in management recently, seeing changes (for the better), would not recommend the food at the moment however hopefully with the new management this will change. Cannot comment on the hotel as simply went to the pub and... More

Have stopped off here three or four times in the last few months on way home from the Lakes. Ideally placed for a bite to eat rather than arrive home quite late and have to start preparing meal. Everything we've had has been freshly cooked to order - fish, chips, haggis, vegetables. Service both friendly and efficient and reasonably quick.... More

Visited here recently for a family meal. The service and food was truly awful. Crispy prawns were like bullets, garlic mushrooms and soup were not good either. Fish and chips were disappointing, The steaks were unbelievably bad. We should have sent the lot back but no one wanted to spoil the evening. Ridiculously long wait between courses too. Sorry we...

Stayed one night at the charming inn. Our room was very comfortable and had beautiful views of the countryside and the lovely village. We loved the dinner we had as well as the breakfast. Best homemade bread in the world!! Had the veggie spring rolls which were to die for and the steak pie was AMAZING! We loved this place... More

Beautifully-kept Pentland Ale in perfect condition and very relaxing bar. Much enjoyed. The beer was so good I had four pints before walking back to my friends for dinner. I liked the blue comfortable seats.

Having been a very regular customer to the pub for the past year I finally got my act together and visited here for food. I have been twice in the last few weeks and I was not dissapointed!

Lovely selection of food on the Restaurant and bar menus. Friendly atmosphere, open fire and garden. Also a great conservatory type extension on the restaurant. Only downside is the lack of baby-change facilities. Otherwise, quite child friendly.
