Owners and staff make you feel welcome. We come here about once a month. Dont expect gourmet food - its bar food plain and simple, tasty and at a reasonable price. Fish is always perfectly cooked batter light and crisp. Exactly what we want when I cant be bothered to cook. Nice situation, plenty of sitting out space in beer garden on a nice day.

Highly Reccomended!!!
Had a wonderful meal here last night with my family and felt I needed to add a positive comment! Nothing too much trouble with a warm and friendly welcome, seems the new owners are turning this place around and doing a brilliant job of it! Meals are reasonably priced and the food was delicious. Keep up the good work!

Excellent Night Out
The crofters has recently been taken over and has live entertainment every Saturday Night. They are constantly looking at ways to improve the services they offer. The beer is well kept and served with a smile.

No good for food.
Went April 2010. Won't go again.
Food not cheap, average price, but quality terrible. Vegetables awful, mash disgusting, chips - warmed up? Food served so quick it was obviously not cooked fresh.
Sorry, but won't be going again

Absolute Shambles
We took my husband's parents out on Mother's Day 2009 along with our 18th month old son. It was an absolute shambles from start to finish, they got the table numbers mixed up, we waited an hour and a half for our meal, we were constantly told it was coming right now, they couldn't even provide us with a bread roll for our son who was ravenous and fed up of waiting, they got our drinks order wrong, twice! we could hear the chef screaming in the kitchen! We were not offered any compensation for this disaster. What was supposed to be a Mother's Day treat for myself and my mother-in-law was a disgrace, we have never been back there since.

Terrible
Went for boyfriends birthday, cocktail menu was impressive but when I got to the bar I was told they don't do cocktails and had to buy each of the ingredients seperately (shot of vodka, shot of archers and fruit juice) and it cost approx 6 rather than the 2.95 advertised. The restaurant itself looked very nice, clean, bright and new. It was when I noticed the main meals were all 5.50 I started to get suspicious. I chose to order the sweet and sour chicken with chips and rice, my partner (is a veggie) ordered spicy veg chilli. VERY DISAPPOINTING. The s+s sauce was, I'm prettty sure, Uncle Bens, very watery and the chicken was in little cubes so rubbery I'm not sure if it was real! The rice was tasteless (as most rice is, but still.) And heavens only knows what the chef thought 'spicey veg chilli' means as what was served was sweet and sour sauce with a few extra veg and some chillis chucked in! By this point I was pretty gutted. The table behind me also complained and wanted to speak to the chef but were told he was too busy!

The 'homemade banoffi' pie had the potential to cheer me up a bit, however when I ordered it (and my partner ordered a latte) I was told there would be a 15-20 min wait, does it take that long to slice some pie and squirt some cream? At busy times I wouldn't mind but it had passed serving time and was quietening down. Unfortunately the pie failed to cheer me up, the biscuit base was approx 1.5 inches thick (very sickly) the toffee was fine but there was only about 3 slices of banana on top. The portion of pie was prettty hefty, it was close to a quarter of a full one! Normally I wouldn't complain but I did feel sick about half way through. My partners latte arrived about 30 mins after ordering, by this point we had had enough and left and will not be returning. However when we told people of our bad experience they already seemed to know how rubbish the place was for food! Little bit embarassing on our part, should have researched first.

Good atmosphere, Food Average
The atmosphere in there is good. Nice pool table and darts area. Plenty of comfy seats. The landlady isn't the friendliest of people but all in all a good public house :D
