I stayed in the hotel for one night and opted to each in the hotel restaurant which did not disappoint. The food and service were fantastic.

I ordered a starter of stuffed potato skins and it was excellent! Breakfast was also good - freshly cooked to order.

We stayed at the hotel and so glad we decided to eat here. The food was brilliant. Fresh, large portions and a good selection all very reasonably priced.

Others at the table had a vegetarian spinach and... More

The 2 course fixed price menu offered a good choice for everyone and was good value. Staff were incredibly friendly, especially Laura, but service was a little chaotic 😀

The menu choice wasn't particularly inspiring but choices were restricted by non availability. The same applied to some beers. The place was quiet but service was slow.

The owner Donald is a chef and he ensures all the meals are of a high standard. We had our breakfasts and dinners at the hotel during our stay. All were very good meals.
