Three of us had lunch in the conservatory. We'd planned to really have a 'lite bite' lunch but in the end two of us chose the fish main course and one a light bite option. We all opted for desserts too, having not planned to,...More

Sunday, late afternoon early teatime, arrived at this restaurant on a beautiful sunny Sunday! The conservatory was the best area to sit on a very warm afternoon/early evening. The doors and windows were wide open and the view into the gardens were lovely. We were...More

Food was spectacular. Roast rib eye of beef with all the trimmings was cooked to perfection. Cannot recommend highly enough! Lovely wee snug bar to enjoy pre dinner drinks (Good beers on tap). Lovely cosy candlelit atmosphere! We will definitely be back!

Been visiting this establishment for over 30 years, never disappointed, swift service, excellent food, good choice of beers, friendly staff, and that log fire. But you won't satisfy all by some of the comments here.

This used to be a great place to eat, now the food is awful, decor very tired and to be honest it looks like it needs a good clean.

A bit off of the beaten track but well worth a visit. The building has a lovely restaurant with a large square open real fire in the centre of the room. Food is top quality and the service is great. I had Gambas to start...More

Yesterday, we stayed at the Crawfield Grange, a b&b not so far from this restaurant. The owner of that b&b recommended us to go to Lairhillock and we were not dissapointed! Very nice and cosy restaurant. The food was delicious and it came very quickly!
