I hope I get this back. Please keeps it going. This has been going since 1st Dec, 2000. Please send it on to someone who is a friend to you . . . [][] Always try to help a friend in need Believe in yourself Be brave...but it's ok to be afraid sometimes Study hard Give lots of kisses Laugh often Don't be overly concerned with your weight, it's just a number Always try to see the glass half full Meet new people, even if they look different to you Remain calm, even when it seems hopeless Take lots of naps.. Be weird whenever you have the chance Love your friends, no matter who they are Don't waste food RELAX Take an occasional risk Try to have a little fun each day. ...it's important Work together as a team Share a joke with friends Fall in love with someone.. ...and say 'I love you' often Express yourself creatively Be conscious of your appearance Always be up for surprises Love someone with all of your heart Share with friends Watch your step It will get better There is always someone who loves you more than you know Exercise to keep fit Live up to your name Seize the Moment Hold on to good friends; they are few and far between Indulge in the things you truly love Cherish every Sunday At the end of the day... PRAY ....... and close your eyes And smile at least once a day! pune

We parked in the main car park by the Tourist Information Centre and spotted this pub further up the road. the bar menu was surprisingly extensive, the staff nice and friendly so we decided to stop and eat. Food was well... More

We had dinner with our family here. Really good food and excellent service. Even on a week day the place was almost full. Even the kids which are not a big restaurant fan, really enjoyed this place.

My family , for adults, two of them vegetarians had a lovely, hearty meal here at a very resonable price. The fish is very good.

We had the scallop starter at £12.50 and received about one and a half scallops each. We saw them in a fish shop for about 75p each that afternoon. Very miserable portion for the price. The marinaded lamb at £18 was at best average. No local competition would be my reason for them getting away with these prices. Should have... More

Visited twice whilst in the area following a recommendation and good TA reviews, and it certainly did not disappoint! The restaurant gets understandably booked up, so we ate both times in the bar which is a lively and characterful place with great atmosphere. The food and choices are excellent, plus cater well for people with gluten intolerance. The staff are... More

We ate at the Laroch on Thursday (without booking) and Friday (glad we booked). It's understandably popular with a long and varied menu and the choices we made on Thursday convinced us to return the next day. Service was efficient and friendly enough. I was a bit disappointed that the range of beers was unadventurous (a few lines of local... More

I'm always impressed by the standard of the food in Scottish restaurants and Laroch is no exception. Perhaps it's trying to be a little more upscale than some (it's fairly expensive) and not sure they completely nail that but the food was very good. Long queue for the till at the end (maybe we were unlucky with timing) so we... More

Brilliant varied menu can be eaten in the restaurant or bar area. Good atmosphere with attentive service. Being able to take our dog into the bar area was a real bonus. Give it a try...you will not be disappointed!
