Oh man, I love this place! With only three rooms you feel as though you're visiting old friends. Two of the rooms are within a suite and share a common bathroom, the other is set down the hall. There is a separate entrance for the guests if you don't want to enter via the bar and restaurant, but who would!?!... More

Four of us stayed here for Halloween (not because it was Halloween, it just happened to be that night) and were delighted with the rooms, service and breakfast. The bar is a local for some regulars who are happy to engage in conversation with outlanders, and is overseen by a charming young lady called Nicole. We moved on the following... More

Not many places to get a bed for the night in this twee small town, overpriced, too. I arrived in the area, needing a bed for one night, & at £55 this was the cheapest. Small things are sometimes telling, & the over-salted, watery leek & potato defied its name & the main veggie option was a heavily over-spiced Penne... More

A warm welcome and a comfortable room for a good sleep. Good value for money and the pub's ideal for a beer. Easy parking outside and there's not much you can't walk to from here. Breakfast was great..

I picked The Bruce Inn because it is right in Falkland and on the Sustrans National Cycle Network route. It is also right across from Falkland Palace. They provided a secure place in their shed to store my bicycle. The rooms are above a pub with shared bathroom. The room was very spacious and had a wash Basin. The bed... More

We popped in for lunch after a morning visit to Falkland Palace and were shown immediately to a table. The menu was brought to us and drinks were ordered. The first beer was a tad sour and this was taken away and a different beer delivered with apologies and we were told that the barrel of the first beer had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Charming former 15th-century ale house opposite the fabulous historic Royal Palace of Falkland, former Royal hunting lodge and home to Rob Roy, Mary Queen of Scots and numerous Kings and Queens. Friendly, warm, welcoming! This traditional family run Inn, with 3 letting bedrooms, serves excellent homecooked food 7 days a week. With a Beer Garden/Courtyard offering a lovely sun trap in the summer months and a wood burning stove in the bar you can be sure of a cozy experience on colder days. We hope you enjoy your stay. ... more   less
