Wooden floors, contemporary furnishings, artworks, subtle lighting and that all-important log fire characterise this 18th-century coaching inn. A huge silver spoon and fork dominate one wall of the modern bar, a subtle hint perhaps to study the menu, while enjoying that pint of Inveralmond Ossian. Beef may come from the family farm and the fish is fresh from Eyemouth, while receiving the garden smokehouse treatment are pork, salmon, chicken and even cheeses. Daily blackboard specials add to a regularly changing menu that typically spiced duck breast, orange and sesame seed salad; pan-fried cod with curly kale, bacon crushed potatoes and beetroot purée; and apple and bramble sponge with crème anglaise. A garden with fruit trees overlooks open countryside.
