On the recommendation of the people we were staying with, a group of 4 of us went to Red Stag for dinner on a Friday evening in Winter.

This is a beautiful restaurant, lovely ambience, open fires burning. I went there with a friend who lives in Fairlie. We were welcomed by the owner with a very negative dialogue that it was a waste of time him being open, he had a booking for two people so had to be open, we were the second two people to... More
