Stayed overnight on special spring bed and breakfast plus dinner rate and had a super stay. Comfy room, friendly staff and really excellent food both evening and breakfast. This area has lots of attractions which gives plenty to do. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel as a good, comfortable base.

We were visiting North Berwick and having passed this place before decided to book for a meal. Really good food and great value. We had lamb and fish which were cooked to perfection. Staff were attentive. The hotel was clean and well furnished. Would go back.

We have stayed here several times before but this is the first time I've taken the time to write a review.

Absolutely amazing food, a real challenge not to pile on the pounds! We...

My family have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions (including my parents wedding in 1992!) and absolutely love it! Highly recommend the Christmas menu, the chicken stuffed with haggis (a firm favourite of both grandma and the dogs), any lamb dish and the pigeon starter. The staff are great and have (on occasion) rustled up gluten free brownies for me...

This family run hotel is very tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, very friendly and the food leaves you spoilt for choice. The bedrooms have everything you need (including a little garden in my case) very spacious and extremely comfortable.
