Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were a party of 6 adults, we had attended a funeral and had chosen this establishment because of its country setting. How I wish I had read the tripadvisor comments prior to going as if I had I would have chosen somewhere else. On arrival we were given our table, the floor was covered in food, there were chips, tomatoes and other remnants of food lying around, we asked for the floor to be swept and the sullen waitress reluctantly did do it. There were 2 waitresses, you know who you were ( 3pm on Friday the 11th of August ) both need to get other jobs before they help close the doors of this place for good. Management take note !! We also had to ask them to clear our plates away, the food when we eventually got it was acceptable but served by these terrible individuals in such a terrible way and not hot enough. All I can suggest to anyone thinking of eating here is DONT, choose another place where the staff are pleased to welcome you.

4 of us visited today fir lunch. The food and prices were good value for money.However, the service we received was very poor. We say outside but had wait an eternity for the starters to arrive. The plates were not cleared and then two.main courses were brought out.one was was for 1 of us . There were no chips included. After a while the waitress returned and told us this was food for another couple and taken away,still leaving the starter plates on the table. After another lengthy wait our food arrived ,without any apology. The starter plates were removed. We were then left alone u til we decided to leave. My wife had intended to have a pudding but we were not offered menus nor we we we asked if we would like anything else to drink or tea or coffee. We made our way to main room to pay our account. I doubt anyone would have noticed if we had just left without paying. Service certainly let the place down badly.

Stopped off for lunch, we had the chateaubriand and have to say it was the most fabulous meal we have had, service was amazing and great value for money, absolutely out of this world. You have to try it, and we recieved a very warm Scottish welcome.

Had a fantastic meal at The Stair Arms on 14 April 2023. Staff were friendly and the food was delicious. Cullen Skink and Haggis Fritters to start followed by Steak Pie and Lady Stair Chicken. So tasty and good portion sizes. We ordered desserts too , sticky toffee pudding and brownie sundae. Both equally lovely. Will definitely return when we're in the area.

We decided to go for a steak meal when the restaurant had a steak deal on. We had been before and loved it, plus it was excellent value. However, on this occasion we were disappointed. We had a starter and dessert too but the steak wasn't up to par. I know they had a 50% deal on but I personally would rather pay full price and get a good steak. The steak was thin, fatty and overcooked. I feel bad giving a poor review as we've always like the Stair Arms, but not this time :-(

Where to start we just had our wedding here on the 12th November and I can’t tell you how perfect it was from booking, communication and the day itself nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff at the stair arms they went above and beyond and everyone complemented the attention to detail that we experienced on the day. It flowed beautifully from start to finish the food and service was top class and I can’t thank them enough for providing us with an absolutely fantastic service for our wedding 10/10 !!!!
