We ate here on a quiet Tuesday evening. A fuel stop after driving up from the south. We shared a small nacho starter. This had tasty home made chili, salsa, guacamole with sour cream as condiments. For main I went for traditional haggis neeps and tatties. My colleague had the steak and ale pie which had melt in the mouth... More

Have eaten here several times but as soon as we arrived we realised something was different as the menu wasn't in the same format. We asked and discovered there is a new chef. Our starters of deep fried brie and scallops and black pudding were excellent and well presented, My husband had fillet steak which was cooked to perfection the... More

Unable to manage a sweet so settled for coffee and brandy. Everything tasty , cooked as requested and served by friendly staff. Never fails to satisfy us... More

On its website this looks like an old pub from the outside, with menus suggesting a classy inside. After visiting I'm still not really sure what it is; a pub with a bit of a restaurant; or a restaurant with a bit of a bar? Once inside the menu promised a lot (though they were a bit cheap). The food... More

We dined at the Shore last week for our daughter's birthday. We have eaten there several times. On arrival we were greeted warmly and were given a suitable table. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to the usual standard. Fillet steaks were not cooked as requested ( not well done). Chicken Balmoral was over cooked and dry. Best meal was... More

Heard a lot of good things about this place, so we visited tonight. It didn't disappoint - food was excellent, staff friendly and for such a stylish elegant layout - it still has a warm cozy feel about it. Fine dining experience .....on a mid price range - win/win
