The menu was not very inviting and very expensive. The service was ok but housework ongoing while we ate. Cleaning windows we were looking out of. I would not return to this cafe.

Delicious homebaking and great choice on menu - bacon roll was especially good! Nice day so sat outside. Looks like some work has started to improve the outside area so will be even better.

The Crown Hotel

Reviewed By Leanne1364 - Townsville, Australia

We wandered in on a cold winter evening for a drink and meal but were greeted with silence. The barman just grunted and got our drinks for us with obvious resentment. The slight cold shoulder was very concerning so we left quickly. The stares and glares from everyone in the bar was most uncomfortable.

Pelosis Corner Cafe

Reviewed By alistair1948 - Falkirk, United Kingdom

Service is always first class in this small cafe even on common riding day. The ice cream is very popular with locals and tourists, there is also a sit in facility where they serve breakfast rolls and lovely coffee and tea? They always have Specials at lunchtime, the staff are very helpful and friendly. Great for light snacks and lunchtime meals.

We stayed locally and was looking for somewhere to eat out in this lovely little village on the Scottish/English Border and we were not disappointed at all. Service wasn't professional but the food was outstanding, On arriving I wasn't sure where we were going and out of no where appeared a young lad and when we said we had a table booked, in silence walked off so we followed. Towards the rear of the building he opened a door and walked off, we assumed the table set out for 4 was for us so we sat down. After a while another young lad appeared and handed us our menus.
I love the fact the menu lists their suppliers and almost everything was local and from small producers, The haddock was melt in the mouth, the steak the same it was so tender and perfectly cooked. The Chef produced amazing food and I do hope they got the tip we left because it was very well deserved.
