Our room was very small and didn't have a closet. We were directly above the bar and our window looked out over the patio/smoking area. We were booked there for 6 nights, Wednesday to Tuesday, but checked out after 4. The bar was supposed to close at 11:00 but did not. The dinner we had there on the first night... More

Had to wait 35 mins to get our order taken. (2 x Steaks) Another minute & I was out the door. The Chef, even after cutting my steak for me into slices failed to acknowledge it wasn't cooked. Med-rare. (Raw but sealed) Third attempt we got the correct wine from the menu. Overall. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

Everything we ate was delicious - imaginative, flavoursome and perfectly executed. Special mention for the Scottish Game main dish: every morsel (of venison loin, pigeon breast and rillette of rabbit) was a joy.

Stopped here for a spot of lunch on impulse. When we arrived there was only another 4 people in the bar area. so it was a bit lacking in atmosphere. However the food arrived quickly and we were both suitably impressed - would certainly call again

The staff here are very friendly and knowagable in the local area if you ask them questions. The place itself is a very pleasant place to be inand the food is very nice if a little pricey. Im a vegetarian and I have found the smaller villages dont have a great deal of choice which I suppose is because of... More

At pleasant environment where staff have a full view of their patrons. Service varied from very slow to chasing for a coffee order before the desert dishes had been removed. The food was well enough prepared but of average quality at a high price. Not a venue to visit if you are travelling a distance to do so as there... More
