‘Went for a return visit after thoroughly enjoying our previous visit. Did not disappoint. Everything was better than our last visit. Everyone in the restaurant should be proud of their establishment.’
‘Excellent meal in lovely surroundings. The restaurant is very comfortable. Very elegant surroundings. The food is good with a good selection. There were four of us, my husband had scallops and our friends had lamb and smoked haddock. All these main courses were excellent. Not huge portions but well cooked and good presentation. The service was also very good. The hotel is well situated on the way up to the castle…’
