Why is this restaurant still listed when it isn't there anymore? We went out of our way to stop here after a stressful drive home from Edinburgh and couldn't find it.

Good food, great choices and good service. The restaurant has a nice relaxed feel to it and the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. The menu has plenty of choice so there will be something for everyone. The prices are good and there was no rush for us to move on. WIll definately be back.
