The food in the Horseshoe is a delight although the menu is very limited. Three or four of our party were disappointed by the choices on offer, due to medical reasons, and had to request alternatives. The staff did try to accommodate their requests but...More

This is the second time I've been here with my family and again, we all really enjoyed the evening and the food really was excellent, certainly enough to rival some restaurants we've eaten in with Michelin stars - I'm not really sure how the Horeshoe...More

Relaxed, easy dining is offered here at The Horseshoe Inn���s Bistro, a low key alternative to the sumptuous Bardoulet���s Restaurant, which has made The Horseshoe famous on the Scottish dining scene. Cosy and rustic, the Bistro is centered around a wood paneled main bar with small round tables edged by linen covered chairs, dark wood original beams overhead and a wood fired stove throwing out warmth just perfect for those cold Scottish winters. A regularly changing menu allows acclaimed chef Patrick Bardoulet to tackle favourite classics from throughout Europe but with his trademark creative twist, using excellent seasonal ingredients from the many excellent producers Scotland has to offer. A children���s menu is available throughout the day, with equally carefully created dishes introducing small gastronomes to the world of good food. Meanwhile, the bar stocks an array of excellent ales well suited to the casual dining approach offered by The Horseshoe Inn Bistro.
