Excellent staff and very welcoming. A very pleasant atmosphere. The food was superb. It was presented very very well and tasted fabulous. Kirkudbright scallops for starters and turbot from the specials board for mains. All cooked to perfection. Definitely will return.

Not too busy for a Saturday night and very attentive service. Menu is Scottish with a French twist. Had an excellent pork fillet. Desert very good but also very rich.
