My wife and I had a rare, kid free day so went for lunch. We have tried everywhere else in the village and have heard good things about the Houston inn. Friendly staff, good menu, nice decor. Not overly impressed with the range of beers on tap (others in the village have draught Italian beers) but settled for bottled Peroni.... More

We were visiting family in Houston and had dinner in the Inn a few times. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food exceeded our expectations so we returned again and again. We understand they also offer accommodation so when we're back up in Scotland we'll definitely book.

We visit fairly regularly since moving to the area just over a year ago. Very pleasant, friendly staff and good service. Food good and portions also. However, the menu could do with a few more choices. Scubaandy

We stay locally and often visit this pub, have had birthday celebrations and nights out with friends. It's the one of the 3 pubs in the village that we visit more often.

The steak was perfectly cooked and I'm told that the Scampi was delicious. Excellent service from the very friendly staff. Although living locally, I hadn't been in for a while. I'll... More

The meal was good but not great. The roast beef was over cooked and dry for my taste. The green vegetables were sparse and there were too many potatoes although they were well cooked. The service was very good and the atmosphere was good. The 2 course lunch did not include a sweet option although it included a starter.

Visited for lunch and was really disappointed. The service was pleasant but the food was very poor. We both ordered baked potatoes which should be really easy to get right. When they arrived one with tuna/ red onion and the other with chilli chicken they looked poor. Overcooked very small potatoes with the filling served separately, tiny dish of poor... More
