Staying near Gartmore for a week and visited twice. Lovely food, plenty of Gluten free options and pleasant and helpful staff. The menu isn't large but the selection is really good and decent wineist too. Decor lovely... A wee gem. Highly recommend visiting.

A few things missing from advertised meal eg cheese board no apple or celery, choc tart could have done with wee bit more cream, risotto was slight under cooked, but was fixed with no fuss. Also add V to menu for veggie options. Will be back was enjoyable and liked the menu, just minor tweeks to make perfect, well done.

Lovely food, great service, restaurant was beautiful to sit in and live music was pitched well, nice to hear but not too loud and didn’t distract from the food or atmosphere. I think you could lose the plastic decorative ivy though!

Service was excellent. Starter of scallops & black pudding had slightly too much chilli. Main course of sea bass could have been hotter but the restaurant was full (which obviously was good to see!). Decor and ambiance were excellent.

wonderful to have the restaurant back..... food was good but perhaps a bit over-decorated and there seemed to be a chilli flavour with everything! Frozen fruit kebabs a daft idea... like trying to eat ice cubes.., what's wrong with just fresh fruit kebabs?? The new decor is great.... although it might be a bit barn-like if there weren't many people... screens? trellis dividers?
