Food was average, only 2 vegetarian options and poor dessert choices, main meals adequate but badly served and presented, several mistakes, kept waiting for sauces etc the worst service we encountered for a long time, we eat out every weekend but wont go back to the Lairhillock.

Never had a bad meal here, proper inn type atmosphere with a log fire and the smell of wood smoke. Great service. You get big portions so think about what you're having or you will be leaving food! contractors who are using the place whilst on the bypass project were noisy.

Having just had yet another good meal at Lairhillock this evening I felt compelled to write a few words. Every time we have been for a meal here it has always been consistently good. It would seem that we end up there on a Sunday which has the rib of beef with excellent Yorkshire puddings but this time I had... More

Went here for an evening meal with the family. The menu had lots of choice, with the usual pub grub favourites on offer as well as the specials board. Food was nice and portion side was ample. The only negative I had was the sweets menu as the choices weren't to my liking but had the chocolate trio with ice... More

We visited on a Monday night, and we had the conservatory all to ourselves. It's a nice relaxing place to eat. The staff were attentive, and the food was cooked well. I had the gambas for a starter and the salmon and crab salad for a main. There were no complaints on our table and service was prompt. The gambas... More

Visited with family- 22 adults, 4 kids and an infant. The staff was very unpleasant, on a couple of occasions even rude. Food was fine, yet safe to say we will not be going back after an evening of feeling unwelcomed and a nuissance.

Left waiting 15mins for wine to go with steak. Had to go to the bar to pick it up. Steak was overcooked in one half. No personal service.
