Friendly staff and great food. Had a great meal with friends after a day out. Quality of food was great. The portions were large and was good value for money.

We stopped here for a quick lunch on Saturday. Decided to sit in the dining room as the bar area seemed a bit noisy. The lunch menu was very small, but we managed to find something we liked. Food was tasty and well prepared. Service was good, no complaints really. The only thing I felt was the main courses were... More

We tried the Guardbridge Inn for lunch given the good reviews we had seen. We certainly weren't disappointed. The soup of the day was really good, served in a deep dish which gave a good helping. I get cross at places with huge flat soup plates with hardly any soup! The soup came with bread and the largest piece of... More

I have been here over the years for meals when it was under different ownership and the standard then was excellent value for money, now it is still (based on this 1 meal) very good food, but the price is just too expensive for what you get. This was my first meal here of 2017. I had Fish and Chips... More

This was my local until I recently moved house. I've had a fab birthday meal, many other meals for other occasions. My birthday again this week, and I'm looking forward to a celebration meal again. The staff are attentive and fun, special meals have never been a problem, they are all very accommodating, and good fun.

This is our local, the staff are friendly, service is great and food fabulous. They have a good range of drinks also. A lovely wood burner in the bar makes it very welcoming.

Maybe we landed on a bad day but not impressed with the food -perhaps its the fact that we were so close to the Gents toilet that was off-putting (yeah maybe we should have asked for another table -but hey ho.
