We dropped in for lunch after visiting the church. We both had the hot meat sandwich which is served with chips and a jug of gravy. My lamb and my husbands beef were both delicious and tender. An excellent pot of tea too :-) We will definitely be back to try out the dinner menu :-)

The food was excellentand imaginatively presented -- for example the sticky toffee pudding came with a tiny milk bottle full of sauce. There is a revolving menu and the food we had was all well prepared. The service was very good and the atmosphere pleasant.

Always a warm welcome. A good choice of real ales. When we are looking for a light lunch we always opt for the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon.

Had one meal that was excellent and two nights later a mediocre effort - consistency is the essential quality that most people seek

We had delicious main courses at the Red Lion and couldn't resist a pudding. It was all beautifully presented. Would definitely return if in the area.

Arrived by chance at 1.55 on a Sunday, with food stopping at 2.00 - still fitted in with a smile, for a sensibly priced excellent roast. So went back later in the week and did it properly - spent the evening eating a well-cooked, well-presented, quality meal, with decent beer too. Not the largest eating area, but a good atmosphere,...

Steak was good and soup tasty. Service was a bit lacking and we had to get up and ask for flatware, beverages, etc.

Steak was beautifully cooked with a tasty chargrilled exterior. Chicken dish with haggis was also delicious. Really enjoyed the cheese souffle only comment would be to serve with a little roll or piece of bread to soak up the last of the cheesy sauce!

Thank Rachel B
