We had received a very unfavourable welcome at The Bothy, having had our name placed on the waiting list and returning at the appointed time, only to be told that reservations are not taken and since we had gone away, someone else had been given our table, so we would "have to wait." We had gone away temporarily, as there was nowhere to stand inside the place. So, we ended up in The Lock inn, and very well pleased we were. The barman acknowledged our presence when we walked in (which made a nice change) and we were able to sit down, in spite of it being a very busy wet Sunday evening in August. There is seating for 40 upstairs, however, so I am sure they would rarely be stuck for space. Everybody who walked in was accommodated. The food was not fast to appear, but that would be because it was freshly cooked, I reckon. I even thought my cooked veggies were fresh. I had steak pie, which was one of the best I have eaten, and my husband had salmon, which was tasty and well cooked. The portions were more than enough, and were well presented. They had quite a few desserts which sounded delicious, but I managed to resist. The meal cost around £30, which I found to be reasonable. The staff were pleasant and polite, which always adds to meals out, for me.
