Very friendly staff. We had fish and chips. Kids had lasagne and chicken nuggets- both homemade and delicious. Excellent value for money! We'll be back.

We came here on our first evening in Carnoustie, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Fast service and food was nice. Menu was quite small, typical English and Scottish menu and was up to a good standard, well presented and reasonably priced. The decor and layout was modern and well maintained.

Now this is a chef who knows how to cook a steak, best one in a long time! This plus the chips and veg made up an ample serving. Great quality and great value...need i say more?

The restaurant is well nicely decorated and layed out. Staff were helpful and came up with a number of alternatives for one of our party who was looking for gluten free food which were not on the menu. Thanks food was good but not outstanding. It was reasonably priced and the portions were generous.

The battered fish at the Gable is the best locally - lovely big flakes of fish and very light golden batter. Good service too.

Went here for an evening meal with family. The manager was very attentive however the lady who served us looked like she wanted to be anywhere else but there. She didn't really speak and once we'd finished our mains she only asked my children if they wanted dessert and never gave me any option of anything else. The food was... More

decided to go to hotel after reading about it in T.A. Went on Friday night and had there fish and chips. Best in we had, the four of us couldn't believe the size of the fish. The staff were friendly and I believe the manager or owner, went beyond his duties to make our night special.

We attended for a large family gathering. We had pre-ordered our main courses which were all delivered as ordered. unfortunately because we did not order desserts there was quite a bit of chopping and changing of what was and was not available. All in all a decent meal for the price.

I had a very strange combination ceasar salad. No parmesan, an uncut chicken breast, no lettuce, but raw onions, rocket, and I think very small cut peppers covered in oil. My other half had macaroni and cheese, basic children's food. I had a glass of white wine, other half a pint of lager. The bill was £22. I wouldn't return.... More

We got two main meals for £12. The chicken goujons seem home made, fish is very good and the chilli con carne was lovely served with rice, sour cream and cheese. Good variety of specials. Wine list well priced and all in all very good value for money. Will be back.
