Superb food, attentive staff, lovely atmosphere - what more can I say? Well, maybe this: Deep fried Camembert with spicy plum dipping sauce: the best crumbed and golden-fried cheese I’ve ever tasted. Cajun chicken and jasmine rice: rich, creamy and tasty with a mild zingy...More

From the front you see a pub, but around the side is Buccleugh's very good restaurant. Good service, and food was very good.
