Good Hotel Guide Review
Curling waves roll up to this smart pub/restaurant-with-rooms in a picturesque former fishing village.Remodelled by Graham and Rachel Bucknall (see The Bridge Inn at Ratho, main entry), it has a comforting bar and dining area with tweed and leather seating, warming fires, hearty pub favourites with mostly local ingredients. The upstairs restaurant overlooks the water; the terrace above the sea wall is ideal for barbecues. Bedrooms, decorated in coastal tones, have a wool throw, coffee machine, plantation shutters and binoculars for studying passing ships. At low tide, the sand in front doubles as a cricket pitch for the country’s only pub team to play on a beach (the MCC is an annual opponent).
