This was my first visit to this restaurant. The menu was extensive and the food and service excellent. I would definitely return and try lunch or dinner as well.

The location in the pretty village of Lasswade is outstandingly beautiful and once through the door, the decor and beauty of the establishment is quite something. We were met by a friendly member of staff and our table for two was positioned to the... More

Ate here a couple of times while staying in Dalhousie Castle nearby. Great choice on the menu, every single thing was wonderful, portions were huge (too much for either of us), prices were great and the staff were efficient, friendly and professional.

Only issue was the black pudding scotch egg starter was a tad on the warm side so could have been served warmer. The Papermill burger with chips & the roast chicken dinner... More

So, I would definitely recommend booking - especially if you are coming in a larger group. Great decor. Pleasant. Did take us a while to get our food, but it was very busy and... More
