A super little pub/restaurant that has a real "heart of the community" feel. Staff welcome you like they've known you for years and have a friendly and cheery manner. Food is good and hearty, perfect for after chilly walk in the Scottish countryside, and there are some great beers to go with it. Highly recommended.

Had a wonderful New Year Eve with friends at this great pub. Ask the chef Tommy to tell you the tale that inspires him to create the Black Douglas Burger, delicious, as was the Haggis Blueberry Bonbon. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

We had the superior room which was lovely, clean and very cosy. The late checkout was even better as ensured we had a nice...
