The best meal I've eaten for a long time, served in lovely surroundings by friendly, knowledgable and attentive staff.

Food was fantastic along with great service. Found it on the internet as a last minute deal, rooms in an old school house and very comfortable. One of those places you should never drive past once you know it's there.

We went one night when staying locally and had the most amazing food and a lovely wine. I would thoroughly recommend a visit. Looking forward to going back and the next time would book a room there as well.

Relaxed, easy dining is offered here at The Horseshoe Inn���s Bistro, a low key alternative to the sumptuous Bardoulet���s Restaurant, which has made The Horseshoe famous on the Scottish dining scene. Cosy and rustic, the Bistro is centered around a wood paneled main bar with small round tables edged by linen covered chairs, dark wood original beams overhead and a wood fired stove throwing out warmth just perfect for those cold Scottish winters. A regularly changing menu allows acclaimed chef Patrick Bardoulet to tackle favourite classics from throughout Europe but with his trademark creative twist, using excellent seasonal ingredients from the many excellent producers Scotland has to offer. A children���s menu is available throughout the day, with equally carefully created dishes introducing small gastronomes to the world of good food. Meanwhile, the bar stocks an array of excellent ales well suited to the casual dining approach offered by The Horseshoe Inn Bistro.
