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.

A lovely venue, which we visit several times a year for 15 years plus. However the staff on reception were very rude and unprofessional when we visited last week, they had no customer service skills and are very unhappy in their jobs. It's a great pity they do not understand the basics- theirs jobs depend on customers. This venue does...

The staff on duty today left an awful lot to be desired. There is an urgent need for some customer service skills training to be undertaken. My family have used the hotel for a number of years for staying in and booking for family meals. The last time was in October 2014 for a family meal for 15 people. We...

My partner & I have just returned home after a lovely overnight stay at this hotel, enjoyed it so much we've have arranged to go back again in November.
