Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Keep it small and do it well’ – that’s the philosophy at this surprisingly sophisticated restaurant-with-rooms in a quiet village four miles north of Peebles. Within the squat, white-painted, roadside building, chef Alistair Craig’s modern menus showcase Scottish produce, and vegetables and herbs from the kitchen garden: poached trout, buttermilk, pickled cucumber, green beans; duck breast, carrots, hash brown, chard. Cross the rear courtyard to a converted Victorian schoolhouse where the ‘modest bedrooms’ (some compact) are supplied with bathrobes and organic toiletries; a hospitality tray with fruit, home-baked cake and fresh milk. Sweet treats at breakfast: local honey; home-made jams and marmalade. Mark Slaney, the personable manager, has a wealth of local knowledge: ask him about the excellent rambling in the area.
