We came off the train late in the evening, it was raining and cold, we just wanted a nice hot meal. Menu choice was OK. Service came with a smile, price correct. Nothing to say.

Up the stairs to a wonderful meal - sizzling fresh haddock, chips, peas and home made tartare sauce, all served with friendly welcoming smiles. The dessert of home made passion fruit cheesecake with coconut ice cream was to die for. Scottish music in the background...More
