“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

Got so lucky. Stumbled in opportunistically (now called the castle bistro). An excellent meal in really pleasant surroundings. Good value too!

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Our family of five contains some fussy eaters but we had 3 courses and not a crumb left on any plate. The chef was flexible with the food to suit our requirements. Lamb chicken fish and vegetarian dishes cooked to perfection. Excellent wine. Friendly staff. Comfortable, relaxing surroundings. Good value too, Highly recommend!

“Great wee restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Very cute little place, lovely people, a menu that's different from what you will unfortunately find everywhere else (haddock & chips, steak pie & peas, creativity anyone????), perfect service in a relaxed atmosphere, what else could you need? Highly recommended!

“Good bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

This is a good bistro. Good explanations by the chef at the start really helped our choice. The £10 special two course offer was outstanding value. Loved the salmon and smoked salmon starter. Main meals were hearty which left no room for pud Good choice of wine too. Booking probably advisable. Homemade shortbread good for dunking!
