We visited today and had a beautifully presented meal, served by lovely staff (Lauren, Shaunie and another young lady - name began with D). Real value for money in a lovely bar/restaurant. Will go back if ever we pass through here again!

Had a very enjoyable meal here on mothers day. Had not prebooked but was seated within 15mins. Good set menu and attentive staff. Well worth a visit and will certainly be back. Also if you are interested in Robert Burns there are plenty of nearby places of interest.

Fish wasn't available, but that just demonstrates that the food...
