“Works night out.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had a works night out here and although the food was ok it wasn't hotel standard and I would not rush to go back. I've also had lunch here and unfortunately an open tuna sandwich with red onion was exactly that. A slice of bread with dry tuna on top with some red onion sprinkled on top and a piece of tomato and cucumber on the side! Not the most inspiring lunch I've ever had. A little more presentation and flavour would improve the food here. Nice atmosphere.

“A lovely welcome at any time when one is travelling to Scotland.”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We always stop here for lunch or a cup of tea. The hotel is on the main road and we park 'free' outside. Yesterday we had tea and cakes. These were simply delicious and inexpensive. Well worth a stop.

“Cosy and welcoming”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This hotel on the main street has a great menu on offer with lots to choose from. Caters for vegetarians and pudding lovers as well as meat/fish eaters. The staff are very attentive but not overly. A real fire welcomes you which on a chilly day is fantastic. A few fish in a tank also greet you but this looks in need of a bit of TLC. It's a compact eating area so a good idea to book, although they do have extra seating available. Certainly a place worth a try.
