Good Hotel Guide Review

A quiet hamlet, a short hit from the coast, is home to this ‘tasteful’, family-run restaurant-with-rooms in a ‘well-maintained’ Victorian terrace house. Visitors this year praise ‘friendly, efficient service’ from Maria Watson and her son, Garry, the award-winning chef, and his ‘excellent food’: ‘nothing disappoints’. A wood-burning stove in the restaurant ‘adds to the character’. The seasonal modern British menus are ‘cooked with panache’, using ‘top-quality produce’. A ‘comprehensive wine list’ delivers perfect pairings for such dishes as North Sea turbot, chargrilled sweetcorn, crispy chicken wings, mushroom purée, burnt cabbage; pistachio crème brûlée, rhubarb compote, mascarpone sorbet; Scottish cheeses. To go with fine food, fine accommodation. Five individually styled, ‘luxurious’ bedrooms have bold Scottish flair (thistle-themed wallcovers, punchy tartans), a ‘very comfortable bed’ and a ‘well-appointed bathroom’. ‘Our courtyard room was beautifully clean and well furnished.’ Breakfast is ‘just as good as dinner’, with home-baked bread, home-made baked beans. ‘The scrambled eggs were the best.’ Follow it up with a generous serving of fresh coastal air on the beach at Lunan Bay.

Guest comments

'Maria Watson made us feel like we were staying in her home. The courtyard suite was immaculate and spacious. The highlight of the stay, however, was the food,exquisitely prepared by Garry Watson. The wine list was balanced and provided excellent choices. The breakfasts were perfect. ' - Sally and Andy Mehalko - July, 2018
'A great discovery. Very warm welcome from Maria; we were wonderfully looked after. The dining room is closed to outside guests on Mondays so we were treated to a wonderful dinner by ourselves. Small but lovely dining room; beautifully decorated; very comfortable, and top-class tableware; really excellent cooking. And wonderful breakfast (best scrambled eggs I have ever had!). Comfortable room (in the courtyard) spotlessly clean and with everything we needed. Gordons describes itself as ‘A Restaurant with Rooms’ and that is exactly what it (brilliantly) delivers. ' - Jim Grover - February, 2015
'A thoroughly enjoysble stay. ' - Edward Perrott - October, 2012
