Do not be put off by the rather bland exterior of this restaurant. It serves the very best of food and the staff are both professional and friendly. It is very smart inside but you get a nice laid back atmosphere. We always pre-book here and there are always tables available mid-week but I would presume that it would be... More

Extensive menu and food was superbly cooked and delicious. The venison in particular was cooked to perfection. All staff we interacted with were friendly, helpful and gave prompt and knowledgeable service.

The reliability of this bar and restaurant is constant. Very good service from all staff, the menu is exciting and extensive, very wee cooked and presented. Would recommend this Inn to anyone. Atmosphere very could, However, it is a little pricey, but you know what to expect.
