Visited on a Saturday afternoon for a light lunch. Staff were so friendly and attentive when required.
The food we had was all very tasty.
The Boarding House has such a lovely atmosphere. Shall visit again.

Second and last visit to this restaurant. Pleased with the first visit, 4 weeks ago, so much so that I booked a table for our return visit today. I wish I hadn't. I chose a bright table in the "conservatory " for 9 people. When we turned up today we were told our table had been given to a different party and we were given a different table which was in a dull location. Eventually after complaining bitterly, we were given a different table in the conservatory which was a bit brighter. I was told that when a table is booked they do not guarantee that you will get the one you want! Eh? why book a specific table and location in the first place? Terrible service, menu has been changed which now has a poorer choice and prices gone up and to make matters worse the bill was wrong and had to be corrected. Definitely will not be back. Go there at your peril, you have been warned!

Went here for a family meal, big area to eat in and really nice decor. Very modern and spacious.
Servers were attentive apart from getting the bill which took a half an hour.
Food - haggis fritters were yummy, served with mash potato and a peppercorn sauce,
All the main courses were nice without setting the world alight, we would recommend the enchilada, both the beef and chicken burgers and the balmoral chicken. The steaks are a little boring and the curry lacked a real spice punch.
A good place to have a meal with a good vibe

Visited mid week tea time with wife and young daughter. Had a very spacious table in the conservatory area. Quick and efficient service. Prawn cocktail was pleasant enough and the chicken liver pate was good. Waitresses very nice to my daughter and she had a very generous kids fish and chips. We both had very big burgers with nice onion rings and fries. The handmade cakes are excellent and the restaurant is clean, well decorated and airy. Drinks reasonable too!
