Upon arrival at the 'Marchbank Hotel' our taxi driver was asked when we were due to be leaving!!!! Warmly welcomed by the young waiter/barkeep, we proceeded to order gins and tonic. Although the variety was good (3 in number) the quantity was slightly limited. When asked for lime or cucumber, the member of staff obliged with sourcing some of the... More

My husband & I had 2 evening meals at the Sportsman Restaurant in the Marchbank Hotel. Both evening meals were lovely, great food nicely cooked & plenty of choice.My husband is on a special diet & is unable to eat quite a few things but all his requirements were catered for without any problem. Would definitely recommend
