We had an itison 2 course lunch deal, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had Cullen skink, lamb rump and chicken, which were all very tasty. The service was great and the freshly baked bread was also a nice touch.

Had a lovely meal in the restaurant here and can't fault the friendly, attentive service. The restaurant itself seems to be in different parts but suits the character of the place. It is probably bigger than it looks, but you always seem to be close...More
