Have not been here for a long time, but used to go a lot when owned by previous couple who moved to France. Booked in for Sunday lunch. Friendly welcome and seated under the staircase. Interior of pub a bit basic the cheap undecorated tables could do with a bit of tlc and brightening up. Waited half an hour for... More

Stopped for lunch one January day mid week. The place was empty. Lovely roaring fire inside and the staff were really friendly. Food was lovely and just the right size portions. The inside of the place is nothing special and I think if it were a special meal this let's it down however the food is lovely.

Went with family and enjoyed a lovely lunch on new years eve. Food was enjoyed by all...but for me the sea bass flavour was drowned by the powerful flavours of mackerel and mustard mash. Scallops and Haggis was really scrumpy.

We went for lunch meeting our families from different parts of the country. Due to traffic we were delayed by just over half an hour. Was greeted rudely by one of the waitresses making a snide comment about being late but that was about all we can complain about! The food was good - we all (8 of us) enjoyed... More

We ate here for lunch and although the food was superb, the service was so slow...and it wasn't as if they were especially busy. The wait staff were friendly, but there was a lot of waiting around to be served. I'd definitely go back - as I said the food was superb - but I would allow a little more... More

Came here for a Christmas business lunch. Lovely location. Table booked for 12.30 but it was nearly 2 before we all started eating. I do appreciate that we were a large party but we did prebook our food choices so... I had the tart to start and to be honest couldn't remember what sort it was meant to be and... More

Lunch with friends. Christmas menu. Food has to be pre-ordered. Decor rich and welcoming. Staff friendly. Salmon starters excellent. Ice cream cheesecake pudding very fine. Shame about the Main Course of trad. Turkey: the 'roast' potatoes were terrible (seemed from frozen); turkey not traditional sliced but pre-formed?; yorkshire pudding (?with a Christmas main?); no sausages or stuffing or cranberry sauce....

I'd heard great things about this restaurant but was slightly disappointed: the venison scotch egg starter was hard boiled and very dry, the main steak, which I asked for medium, was more on the rare side but ok. Dessert, plum cobbler was nice. Staff were really attentive and friendly, I'd definitely come back and try something else but it wasn't... More
