We had a seafood soup, with calamari, scallops and mussels in a thick tomato base soup. Also, a wild boar pate. The luncheon was so good we planned to return for an evening meal.

Cozy little place in this sleepy town. The beef and haggis stew was spot on. Staff was friendly and prompt. Whiskey list not as extensive as some but great prices and they poured up some not so wee drams. We left happy!
