Overall a very nice place, had been a few times previously and no complaints whatsoever. However on this occasion I was quite unhappy with the food I ordered. The chicken smelt and tasted really bad. My friend tasted it and agreed it tasted off. I mentioned to the waitress who spoke to the chef who in turn said that it had been marinated in vinegar and something else, giving it the odd taste. I don't understand why chicken would be marinated in vinegar??? To me it just smelled and tasted bad. Anyway I asked for just a salad after this, which was perfectly nice and a good portion. I was not charged for my meal.

All round very good, the only thing lacking for me is a lack or a proper IPA beer like tempest or Stuart brewing.

Very expensive, and not worth the money. Food was ok, but certainly not worth what they charge. More like Edinburgh prices.

Booked the blackadder inn as I have been there before but this was for my husbands birthday and I asked for something to be brought to the table after our meal, a glass of single malt whiskey which did happen the the waiter kept me in touch and checking when we were ready Andrew the waiter was very helpful polite and good service by him. My husband was surprised with his birthday surprise. Thank you for a good night

Lovely place with pleasant, attentive and friendly staff. Varied menu with a daily specials board ( which is unfortunately almost impossible to read from the tables). Meal and wine was excellent and will certainly return.
