One of the latest reviews on Trip Advisor sums up much of what Annora is all about:
“Great wee pub winner of several Traditional Pub of the Year awards. Rooms lovely and cosy, staff are friendly and professional and now it’s got even better with a new chef in the restaurant. 4 empty plates from our table. Possibly the nicest sirloin I’ve had in years. Highly recommended.” Brendan C
