The food here is consistency good - try the risotto or the steak or the fish of the day, all excellent. Every time we've eaten here it has been a great experience.

Had breakfast at Fairweathers when catching up with family. This is primarily an ale house but their breakfast choices were really good. One family member had eggs benedict which looked really good. Bacon and eggs were nice and good size. Would go there again
