Very friendly service, warm welcome as we arrived, attentive but not overpowering. We ate from the set menu which was brilliant value. The food was high quality, clearly all freshly prepared. Starters of smokies and fish cakes were fantastic. 2 had burgers which they declared delicious. I enjoyed the steak and my hubby loved the turkey roast. 2 of us... More

A friend and I had dinner here on a Thursday evening as it was recommended to us. We were glad we had booked in advance, as it is obviously a very busy establishment. We were greeted in a friendly and professional manner and shown to a lovely table, right by a radiator, so it was warm and cosy. I had... More

Excellent facilities. The bedroom was very clean and tidy. The service was excellent and the breakfast was one of the best we have received on all trips this year.

4 mains..... 4 puddings......4 stars Really good service, a varied menu, not too expensive, OK surroundings. We were there on a Tuesday and it was fairly quiet. It had rained and flooded the village that may have kept people away. We all,enjoyed our meal and will,go back. Recommended

This was my first visit here after Ye Olde Dun Cow was recommended by friends. I am always wary of other people's recommendations however, on this occasion it was well justified. It was a visit for my wife's birthday, we booked a table for 7pm. Upon arrival we were shown to our table, and ordered drinks. The choice of feed... More

Had a meal here with friends. A la carte menu with special board. We had between us a fish main, the belly pork and a couple of the chicken breasts on haggis. Really good meals. Perhaps could have done with a few extra veg. Meals average around £14 for a main and £5 for dessert. Very good meal.

Saturday evening meal for 8 friends, although the restaurant was very busy we were not kept waiting for our food and drinks. The menu has plenty of choice and is varied. We went to this restaurant on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We will certainly be making a return visit
