My wife and I stayed here in November. This used to be a favourite of ours but under the previous management team we had to give up and go elsewhere so poor was the service and the food. The new owners have done much to change all that. The attitude and service from the staff and owners is so much...

Arrived here alone after a gruelling walk from Dunbar. Excellent and welcoming service, landlady more than happy to tumble-dry my soaked clothes from being stuck in a storm. Food was delicious, room was excellent and clean. Couldn't ask for anything more, definitely a good place!

We stayed at this hotel for one night as we were breaking up our journey down south. Checked in late and were met with a lovely reception from staff. Staff could not have been nicer. Dinner was delicious and our room was clean and comfortable. Great value for money.

I had a few drinks here and dinner whilst travelling alone. The service was excellent and I was made to feel very welcome. The bar is nice and cosy with a decent selection of beers. Food is standard pub grub.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. We went for a birthday break for a couple of nights and our twin room was spacious and attractive. As a hotel with a pub and a restaurant we obviously heard a bit of noise from the bar, but it didn't bother us at all because we had such a nice drink and...

Ten of us booked for a Sunday meal. We had starters, mains and pudding and drinks and it was all very good. There were 2 children and 2 vegetareans and all aspects of the groups food requirements were met very well. Get in early for the specials, our only issue was that 2 of the specials had finished.

We arrived late and hungry. We stepped in to the pub and were welcomed into an intimate gathering room with shy but friendly locals. The landlady graciously ushered us into the dining room where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner from quite an extensive menu. Everything was delish!
