Spent an evening and night with my wife to get away for a day and were not disappointed in anyway. Nice warm welcome, very friendly bar, fabulous new ensuite room and very nice food. Place feels cozy, relaxing and will definitely come again. Well worth a visit.

A warm & friendly welcome as always, delicious Sunday Roast and Pork & Haggis Wellington followed by Pear & Raisin Crumble with Custard to share. Chef is first class, menu is very reasonably priced, food top notch & the owners are great hosts. Perfect on a cold winters evening!

Visited here just after New Year and spent a lovely evening in the bar and a night in one of the rooms. I have to say I slept in the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in with proper pillows (not those flat sheets of foam you get in most hotels) and super facilities. The proprietors are really friendly...
