We arrived and our bags were delivered upstairs to Room 202, immediately. They offer a Buffet on Thursday evenings, extremely good. Breakfast was very good offering full cooked breakfast to order. They... More

Great meal, cooked to perfection, well presented. Staff excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Excellent choice of menu with a wide range of prices. Some of the starters can be ordered for mains if you have a smaller appetite. There is also kids, teens and older menus to choose from.

Nice, cosy wee place. Love all the Scottish decor. Also do really nice soup and sandwich for lunch. You don't need to stay at the hotel to use the restaurant. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar is also lively and there is often live music.
