“Pretentious titles but great food.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Friends booked this place and we were seated in the conservatory. We asked to be in the main dining room, but they were "booked" so we ended up in a very noisy conservatory as the rain was beating down on a poly carbonate roof. The food has ludicrously pretentious names, ie hot smoked salmon martini. The only martini we noticed was the shape of the glass! However the salmon was delicious. The serving staff could have done with a bit more knowledge of the dishes available. There was Prosecco and white peach risotto, I asked what else was in it? Just Prosecco and white peaches. That makes it a dessert not a main course! However all the food was delicious, generous portions and the staff were lovely if a little in the dark about the food.
If you are booking, make sure you decide where you want to sit, and ask for the relevant space.

“Fantastic food! Friendly staff!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Being a local and on hearing how good the Dreel is we thought we'd go and give it a try for lunch. The food was beautifully cooked and presented! We then decided to book for an evening meal for the next weekend. Highly recommend the sea bass and my husband enjoyed the sirloin steak! The choice of menu is not huge but what you are presented with is really very good! Far superior to other restaurants in the area!

“What a wee find!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Popped into this old pub after a long walk with our dog, the barman immediately got us a bowl of water for our hot and thirsty pet and the landlady, instead of giving her a dog biscuit, went into the kitchen and got her a bone which she loved..... It was so nice there we booked a meal for tonight(01/08/14) and were not disappointed. My husband raved about the smoked haddock chowder, the sea bass we both had as main courses was delicious too. Great wee place, pity we are going home!! All the staff there were so nice and helpful too.

“cute little pub”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Very dog friendly. Staff lovely. Nice sunny beer garden. no child menu and happy to do smaller portions although nothing was suitable for a young child. welsh rarebit too much mustard so granddaughter or I found it too strong. maybe take food for your young child if you wish to try the Dreel for dinner. would go back for drinks and see the lunch menu. Deceiving from the outside - give this place a try
