The staff here are a real credit to themselves. We were a big party and split bills but staff were on the ball, accommodating and polite; going out of their way to help us at every opportunity. The restaurant doesn't look like a huge amount...More

The staff were great, the coffee ok, the chips (special request to cook until crunchy) were exceptionally delightful. However, the burger was dry and dark brown throughout (did they try to burn it like the chips?) was bloody horrible.

This little place looked like not much from the outside but did the job perfectly- everyone was happy with their meal, the quality of food is very good, service polite, would definitely recommend especially as there are few choices around! Plan to stop here!

We had a party of five which they easily accommodated. The lamb chop was excellent, as were the venison sausages. I suggest avoiding the sweet and sour chicken. Hong Kong is a better venue for that.

I only visited the restaurant - not the owner of the establishment. They have a Facebook page - you could try contacting them via that. Hope you have a lovely holiday in beautiful Scotland :)
