Trip Advisor has just told us we have been awarded a "Certificate of Excellence".  This is entirely thanks to our great guests who take the time and trouble to write about us.  Thank you.  It is incredibly helpful to us.  As you can imagine our marketing budget is, well lets say, minimal!  

Thank you!

Thank you for nominating us for the Scottish Restaurant of the Year Awards.  We are finalists in the Rural Restaurant of the Year.  The power of email etc is a wonderful thing for tiny places like us.  But, we could not do anything without you so many thank yous  for taking the time and trouble.

The weather remains astonishingly beautiful here!  We cannot take any more bookings for this Saturday (20 April)  so our apologies if you  have tired to book for this day. PLease do try and come another time.  Jane

What to grow?

We have had fantastic weather here for the last 10 days and Lesley is well ahead in planning the garden.  What are we (well Lesley)  going to grow this season?   The garlic is in and the first cut of purple sprouting was made yesterday.  Leslesy has given up on keeping the chefs off her peas and is reconciled to the pea tips being taken for salads etc.  Also last seasons technical hitch with sour melons has been "addressed" and Lesely is confident we will have a good crop this year!
