The Bair is a really superb restaurant offering well cooked and locally supplied produce. The menu is really extensive and covers a wide range of dishes. Best to reserve a table especially at weekends, very popular. Warm atmosphere with a nice small bar area for pre dinner drinks or post dinner coffees. Friendly atmosphere and staff.

We have dined here on numerous occasions and have always found the service excellent. Nothing is too much bother for them. The food is always piping hot and delicious. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

Group booking for 9 of us. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals which came piping hot served by lovely helpful staff. Only criticism I could come up with is that we had a choice of 3 different menus (normal, group and specials) which became a bit confusing for the party. Would definitely recommend

We booked a table for 4 last week for Sunday dinner at 6pm, but when it came to ordering our food we were told that the roast beef was finished, which considering the time of evening it was, we thought was dissapointment. I would have thought a traditional Sunday dinner what be required by more than a few people, and... More
