Great! Lovely food (Cullen skink and Red snapper) with friendly and efficient service and in an interesting and spacious pub/restaurant. The portions weren't huge, but they were fine and the cost was reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit there and will return if we are ever in that area again.

The food is well presented and a lot of it does appear to actually be cooked on site rather that boil in a bag or heated in a microwave which is clearly the case in many of these restaurants. The staff are charming and the ambiance acceptable.

Wife and and I stopped here after really long day from Los Angeles. Very good meal, I had the Venison, and my wife had a stuffed Chicken breast, both were excellent, even though my Venison was overcooked. (I ordered Rare, got medium). Wine was excellent and well priced as well as the food. I would definitely go back.

There were 10 of us for dinner and we had a very pleasant and enjoyable evening. Both food and service were good. Therestaurant is spacious and I can imagine on a busier night that the atmosphere would be really good.

Excellent place for lunch or snack. Very lovely staff most helpful polite and gracious. The food was excellent we had a chicken burger and soup and salsa. Everything was exquisite. We would certainly visit it again. The ambience was good too and is quaintly situated with a view of a typical Scottish village.

This is the 3rd time that I have eaten at the Classroom and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. Great atmosphere and is always busy. Safer booking at the weekends.

Thank P R
