Couldn't fault the place. Lovely meal, great staff and every precaution taken to ensure Covid safe. We took our dog and sat in a heated booth outside. Despite the weather it was nice and cosy.

Had a wonderful meal and the service was excellent. All Covid restrictions were in place and adhered to at all times but this did not spoil the atmosphere or charm.

Visited last week for the first time and new layout was well thought out and a lovely country pub feel. Welcomed on arrival and service was excellent throughout. Food and beer was excellent with a good choice of both. We were inside but sneaked a peak at outside covered sitting area and looked great for a drink or food with individual booths. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Just came for drinks only in heated covered booth outside which works really well. The free cup of hot soup later in the evening was a nice touch and most welcome! Will definitely see you again.

This was our first meal and we were absolutely delighted with the food, wine and service. We had a seat at the fireplace so it was a lovely table for a winters day! We would have loved to have left a gratuity on the card machine but this option doesn’t seem to be available.

With social distancing practiced as well as this, it's hard to imagine why the Scottish Government is so quick to shut down the hospitality sector!! Well done to James and his team. They are committed to providing an outstanding community resource, safely, in the face of this awful covid situation. Hats off to them all!!
