We had a wonderful meal, not cheap but excellent quality, with very professional and friendly service, even to the extent that they collected us from our hotel and took us back at the end of the night. We will certainly dine at the Horseshoe Inn...More

Living locally this was the last of what we thought was a gastro pub we hadn't tried... What an amazing surprise to find it actually a high end fine dining restaurant instead to suit our taste. The building is like going into a hobbit hole....More

Although The Horseshoe does not (yet) have a Michelin Star, this is the standard it tries to set, indeed a few Michelin Star chefs could learn a thing or two here. In particular, the preparation shows an understanding of subtlety of flavour, rather than assaulting...More

Relaxed, easy dining is offered here at The Horseshoe Inn���s Bistro, a low key alternative to the sumptuous Bardoulet���s Restaurant, which has made The Horseshoe famous on the Scottish dining scene. Cosy and rustic, the Bistro is centered around a wood paneled main bar with small round tables edged by linen covered chairs, dark wood original beams overhead and a wood fired stove throwing out warmth just perfect for those cold Scottish winters. A regularly changing menu allows acclaimed chef Patrick Bardoulet to tackle favourite classics from throughout Europe but with his trademark creative twist, using excellent seasonal ingredients from the many excellent producers Scotland has to offer. A children���s menu is available throughout the day, with equally carefully created dishes introducing small gastronomes to the world of good food. Meanwhile, the bar stocks an array of excellent ales well suited to the casual dining approach offered by The Horseshoe Inn Bistro.
