    Great place

    The place, food and staff service were great! Excellent attentive service without being rushed (at a busy festival time) . Mussels were great but so was everything from bread to postre, brûlée lovely and posset, so lemony and smooth

    Fell below standard I had come to expect here perhaps because of Festival fever

    This is a place that I normally recommend highly and enjoy but I would now be more careful on menu choice particularly during Festival period. There was a fair discussion beforehand about choice as companion is gluten free. Bisque was fine but when my 'Peterhead Smoked haddock with leek sauce and mash' arrived it came as a fish pie in a small dish with limited fish. I queried this and substituted it for sea bass which was perfectly fine. However later another waiter came up and said they examined the 'pie' and there was adequate fish. This I found unhelpful as I had not ordered 'fish pie'. We were given a free coffee which was appreciated but perhaps dishes need to be more accurately described as this dish felt like a money grabber. I have put this lapse down to the demands created during the Festival as I have taken people here on several occasions and have never been disappointed before. This is the reason I have said I would go back.

    Not great

    The restaurant did not have our booking and was unaware of the 5pm offer being advertised. We were put at a table in the corner of the residents restaurant rather than in the main pub/restaurant. The food was ok.
