I have eaten here numerous times over the years and the place has recently had a little bit of a face lift which has made it a much more comfortable environment. They always have a log fire on to drive away the cold days and the staff are very friendly.

The food is your typical pub grub but done to an unusually high standard. The best thing about the place however is the beer which is brewed on site and tastes amazing. The wife ended up driving home....

Group of six friends met up here for a lunch. Plenty of space, varied menu and great choices of local beer made this a splendid meal. We weren’t hurried and the staff were attentive. Prices were fair for the food.

Walked from a local campsite near Staveley to this friendly pub that is dog friendly, serves its own beer and good food. I sampled the black pudding starter which was excellent.

After thousands of positive reviews it had to happen . We arrived about 3pm after driving from Edinburgh for Sunday lunch . I opted for Turkey roast my friend the beef .When the waitress did her check , the '' beef 's as piled on a napkin ,A jumble of fat ; sinew and ventricles !! My friend was eating my Turkey .As he had done the driving l couldn't see him go hungry ! The comment from the waitress when we pointed to the inedible beef , was "beef could be like that " Not when you pay just under 11 pound for it, accompanied by cold raw broccoli ,baby food Swede with watery gravy . No refund offered, so no return EVER.
