"The staff are friendly and professional in their attentive approach. The food is excellent, good homely menu to choose from and the bar prices are fair. An ideal location for hill walking and exploring the surrounding hills, or to use as a base to tour further afield by car or bike. I will be booking a return trip very soon."
