Had the stunning local hake in a super sauce- with an excellent veg soup before and an epic peach Melba after. Wonderful friend and food knowledgable staff too- Really is a find as we were just doing the distillery tour which was also unmissable.

Fresh from our tasting in the distillery we went into the adjacent restaurant and had a surprisingly good meal. In our party of 4 one was driving and two didn't really care for vodka or gin so the fourth - me - had rather more than a tasting. I can report that the vodka seemed very good and the gin was pleasant. The food was very good. We chose from the fixed menu (2 course). I had a very tasty crispy squid dish as appetizer followed by a very well cooked and presented pollock dish. My wife had tomato soup and hake. My sister had tomato soup and minute steak and our friend had minute steak and creme brûlée. All very enjoyable with good service and very reasonable price.

Ten of us went for our ruby wedding anniversary, the menu was very good, the service was excellent and the food was very tasty. Due to the size of the party and the amount of alcohol being consumed the waiting staff did an excellent job and never got annoyed even with some of the boisterous ones. In our opinion this is a great restaurant with good prices and as a bonus there is the distillery just outside

Last visited a year ago and pleased to say this restaurant is still keeping up the excellent reputation for good food and service. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food cooked to a high standard. Not cheap but good food isn't nowadays. Only one criticism, our young waiter did insist on referring to us all as "guys", but was there were three ladies in the party, it didn't go down too well. I know he was trying to be friendly, but staff need to be aware of who they are serving and talk to them accordingly.

Called for lunch before going on distillery tour. Very enjoyable light lunch on a wet and cold day. Good soup to warm us up.
