We had dinner there tonight, with 2 small children. We sat outside and the view is spectacular, very beautiful and peaceful. The staff were very friendly and provided the extra things we needed for the kids. The food was well cooked and tasty. We had steak and fish and chips. We will definitely be going back.

Popped in for a refreshing drink after enjoying walk round the lake.Enjoyed looking at the walking crooks for sale in the bar area and the open raised fireplace was most welcome as it was cold for this time of year.Unfortunately too late for lunch but will return in the future!

We only popped in for a drink and ended up having a bar meal. Homemade lasagne and chicken pie. Very tasty and the owners were very accomodating. The bar is dog-friendly so we were able to bring in the third member of our family who was excited to meet the owners' 2 spaniels. Lovely atmoshphere and nice food.

This restaurant is a little way out of town but is well worth a visit.There is a large carpark.The situation is stunning as it is beside a lake high in the hills. When we were there the water-lilies were just finishing flowering. It seems to be a popular venue as all the tables were occupied at some time during our... More
