Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The location is great and the building is beautiful but the food is pretty average. I made the mistake of ordering one of the burgers which was really oily. My wife ordered the soup which looked much better and gave me food envy!

We were in Kintyre for a week and visited here 3 times, it is that good. The first was the Sunday Roast, beautifully cooked and wow, what a plateful, I couldn't finish mine but my husband did!!!!! Even got an extra jug of gravy -...other restaurants could learn from that. Next day we went back for coffee and melt in your mouth home made apple pie, lovely. Finally, we went in for breakfast and again not disappointed, lively scrambled egg (not made in a microwave!) and all the cooked breakfast you could want. Fabulous place.More

Main thing is the food is very good. First visit we had Scallops and black pudding with trimmings - excellent. Second visit we had the Haddock, chips and peas - again really well cooked and presented. Service was fine, pleasant, and relaxing. The table was...sprayed and wiped down but remained somewhat "sticky" but that's a minor point. The food's not cheap but acceptable, what is cheap these days? We'll be back, hopefully again and again.More

Absolutely brilliant! Easy, effortless customer service. Authentic interest in customers from the second we arrived. A total ‘can do’ approach. We just went for soup and cesar salad (which can be prone to issues) but both were absolutely on point. Perfect hosts, from Lancashire, straight...forward, approach, natural, warm and welcoming. The food was a 10/10. A perfect afternoon and already looking forward to our next trip…More

Fabulous!! Lovely welcome from the waitress on arrival friendly manner . We called in for breakfast while visiting the area in our camper van. Lovely place! Spotlessly clean! Welcoming staff and great food! What more could we want. Mushroom omelette was delicious and came with...side salad & toast too! Hubby had full breakfast including toast Coffee was delicious also! Would highly recommend this place doggy friendly too! Even a soft play area for children in a separate part of the restaurant A well laid out setting! Thank you 😊 Would be a fabulous stop over for camper vans when needing a lovely meal maybe the owners may consider this in the future?More

Read reviews on the Gather and went there with family, 6 adults, 1 child. The staff were very attentive and friendly, however, the food wasn’t. I had the cajun chicken with tortillas and cheese, honestly if it wasn’t that my son was treating us I...would have left it. It was so bland, not a bit of spice to be tasted, very disappointing. One had soup and sandwiches which seemed really good, the Campbell’s burger was nice, the venison burgers were okay, just. The best meal was the kids afternoon tea, this was novel and thoroughly enjoy. Also thought it was overpriced. Can’t say I’ll be returning which is a shame.More

You do not have to book but it is advisable, pets are fine outside on the patio I think. I was there last weekend and a party with a dog was sat outside in the sun.
