We couldn't have had a warmer welcome. The staff made us and our two labradors very welcome. Our booth was comfortable despite us having misgivings after a day of mixed weather. The food was quality pub grub. Will be back if we can get booked.

I loved my evening at the Brig and Barrel. Wednesday evening and the atmosphere was fab. It’s poured with rain and hailstones but our table was warm and cosy, it all just added to the atmosphere. Friendly service and lovely food. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful to have our first proper restaurant meal in the evening with wine since 7 months ago! The outdoor dining booths are brilliant, and even though it was raining quite heavily we had a great evening. Very good service and beautifully prepared food (as on previous visits). Small but interesting wine list with reasonable prices. Great sense of care with Covid hygiene issues. Just one suggestion: as the seats in the booths are fixed, a slightly wider table would be more comfortable to reduce the distance from the seats to the table!

Was great to be back! Appreciated the hug in a mug to keep us warm on a typical bleak bank holiday Monday in Scotland! We look forward to our next visit already!

We had a lovely time at the Brig, it was beautiful looking, despite the heavy rain, and we were cozy under our heated shelter. Lucy was serving us and was so lovely, we couldn’t compliment her enough!

We had Sunday lunch and enjoyed the lovely slow cooked brisket with all the trimmings delsih! As well as the haggis Bon Bons and apple crumble (we’ve been waiting all through lockdown for this). Food was amazing as always and we took our wee dog with us too. Family of 6 had brilliant afternoon.
