                                                        Great use of local ingredients well put together in the dishes. You probably need to be a meat eater to really enjoy the meal - could do with more vegetables for us. That being said, we will definitely be going back.

                                                        Excellent standard of food, lobster ravioli and braised brisket was amazing. Buffalo crocket slightly dry may have been better with two smaller crockets with more gravy for dipping. Also, no side dish options on menu such as seasonal vegetables or salad. Otherwise food was faultless

                                                        This is high quality dining, not cheap eating. The majority of the food is locally sourced and of excellent quality. Each plate was beautifully presented and the combinations of flavours was superb. I would highly recommend eating here, particularly for a special occasion.

                                                        Sunday lunch in a quiet restaurant. Good menu, all local supplied ingredients so everything fresh on the plate. Roast beef and the trimmings for the wife and a piece of grilled hake for me. Both very tasty plates, I particularly liked the spelt gnocchi with mine and the accompanying blueberry beurre blanc. One pudding, clootie dumpling, I managed a taste and it was good. Not the cheapest place in the area but it's one of those, 'you get what you pay for' places, quality ingredients cooked to a very high quality. Deserved to be busier but might just have been a quiet day we were there.

                                                        You obviously have staff problems —. No Chef!!!. Your waitress can tell you our complaints.

                                                        Beautiful, locally sourced food served promptly. Amazing selection of whisky and knowledgeable staff. Helpful and flexible for gluten free options. My only criticism (seems to be the restaurant trend currently) was that it was a tad fussy.

                                                        We stayed overnight at The Station Hotel and ate dinner ad breakfast there. The food is simply outstanding and outstandingly presented. Try the salt aged beef. My freshly made lobster ravioli starter was memorably wonderful. Portions are just about right without being too nouvelle or gluttonous. My only very slight niggle is that the striploin beef and accompaniments were a bit too salty. Overall it would be hard to beat this for quality and value in the area.
