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.

Maybe it was the main chefs night off as we were virtually the only diners, never a good sign. Our grouse starter was served with something really bitter which ruined any flavour, we were warned the " plates are hot!" But the food was luke...More

Went for Sunday lunch. Great food and very reasonable for lunch considering the quality of the food. The roast beef was more like a steak it was cut so thick - lovely!

Enjoyed the taster menu & wine last Friday. Food was totally superb & enjoyed many dishes that I would not have usually chosen. Each wine went brilliant with it’s the course. The service was also very good, informative & attentive.

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.
