We had a family meal out, staff friendly and accommodating. Food was good value and of good quality, steak pie, balmoral chicken and the combo starter all were great. A slight delay in meals being brought out together- a minor mix uo maybe but all in all impressed......we will return.

The Lairds Inn just been taken over by new management. It was very busy when we visited. Food was nice with fair sized portions. Fish and Chips good, fresh fish with crispy batter. Steak Pie had plenty of steak in it and a nice pie top. Lasagne tasty and filling. Only issue was the length of time it took between... More

The Laird's reopened last Saturday the 2nd April.Happy to say that after the disasters of the last few years, especially last year, we now have a very promising team running the holiday park pub and restaurant. We went along to the opening night, a little hesitant yet full of hope and optimism. Good start a warm welcome and everywhere looked... More

Lairds Inn Review The Lairds Inn is situated in a lovely spot, with the sea in the distance, and a charming ruin adjacent to the pub. It has so much potential and it saddens me to have to write a bad review, but I hope the current owners take on board what people are saying, because to be quite honest... More

Absolutely terrible service and food. 5 Meals delivered to the table one at a time and the person that was served first had finished before the last one came out. Lasagne still frozen, Steak and Ale Pie had what looked like a stock cube mixed with water as the gravy. All that can be heard is the slamming of the... More

We were asked for time and number in party and told we were booked in. When we arrived in the... More

This review is a complete fabrication. The customer concerned arrived with his family and ordered drinks - there are printed menus on all the tables - I did not say that they were 'over on the side'. Starters were ordered, served and consumed without any comment. Toast AND oatcakes were served with the pate and as we had run out... More
