Beautifully refurbished while maintaining its historical charm. Large rooms with modern conveniences and incredible view, no detail has been overlooked. Service was excellent. The food is amazing, best in town. There’s a comfy chair waiting for you by the fire.

Friend recommended this as great place for good, fresh, homemade pub food. Booked ahead and glad we did. Warm welcome from staff. Lovely dining room with river views, snug lounge with wood burning stove which was welcome on such a frosty wintry day. Excellent menu with lots of choice and couple of super sounding specials: monkfish scampi and a tandoori...

We met up with friends for a Christmas dinner and stay for Bed & Breakfast. The Christmas Dinner was excellent and very tasty. 6 of us had a really nice stay, the room was very warm and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was superb - full English. A little expensive but it was good.

Very welcoming and the views are stupendous. Food selection was unfortunately very predictable. The availability of gluten free food was poor. My husband was offered an omelette which is not what is wanted when going out for a meal. It struck me that there was a distinct lack of knowledge or interest in specific dietary needs.

We went there on the recommendation of my brother who is a local. The Catalan fish stew was one of the best meals I have ever had. My partner had the same and we agreed that it was excellent. Will definitely visit again.

We had 2delicious meals at the Osborne. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The choice of food was excellent and the lamb meal was outstanding. We were very impressed and would recommend this restaurant. The added bonus was the view over the Clyde ....wonderful!

We've just got back from a lovely two night stay at the Osborne. Hosts Pete and Elliot are very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable of the local area. Our room (number 1) was spacious, clean and had stunning views. We ate at the hotel both nights and couldn't fault anything, service was brilliant from the whole team and the food was...
