Found this by accident and what a little gem...room immaculate and food beautiful . Parking is a little cramped due to lack of spaces but easily parked outside the Inn Itself. Dogs are also very welcome even though we didn't have ours but really good to know

The Nateby Inn, if we are to believe the outpouring of gossip in the bar, is in a state of flux! It appeares to have had a fairly turbulent time with its managers of late, and certainly feels like it needs a strong presence to bring it back on track. The staff are lovely, if a bit scatty, I had...

The recent trip was a spur of the moment one but a rehearsal for an already booked buy a gift overnight stay breaking the journey to Dundee in Sept. How glad I made the choice I did. A lovely welcome , homely accommodation and food to die for, what more could you want.

Firstly I'd like to point out that the rating of one is NOT for the food which was very good but for the service which was shoddy, amateurish and at times very rude. I used to live in the village and have known this pub well from when the food and service was renowned in the area. There have also...

As the owner of the Inn I would like to say I think this review regarding cash flow and my business is very much out of order. You do not know my personal life or my personal finances or the Inns. I have worked very hard in refurbishing the Inn and was only there last week working on upgrading areas....

We had chosen to book a meal at the Nateby Inn in order to support a local business where we had previously enjoyed a bar meal. We chose to interpret the décor of plastic flowers and outlook onto a rotting caravan parked in the car-park as symbols of a new business venture not yet in tune with its focus clientele....

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

Having booked a table at the Nateby Inn to support a local business we were looking forward to our meal. However a number of important issues need to be raised. Firstly upon ordering the mixed grill from the menu I was told that the meat had not been delivered yet (this was at 7.30pm in the evening). It must be...

Lovely quiet spot surrounded by countryside with a very pleasant and peaceful beer garden. Rooms welcoming with comfortable nights sleep. The food was of a very good standard with friendly helpful hosts.

We needed to stay in the area for a couple of nights and this seemed a good choice from the reviews. We had two rooms which were clean and the beds were reasonable but the rooms could not have been smaller and the quality of finishing/furnishing not particularly good. This was not because it was a rustic old build -...
