We go to the Adamson regularly, and it has that unique ability never to disappoint. The cocktail bar before dinner is a must, with bar staff who have been properly trained and can actually make "real" cocktails as opposed to the multicoloured cocktail umbrella nonsense one sees so often. Dinner was as always excellent, with either Julie or Graham always... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal here with friends. Menu caters for vegetarians and those on gluten-free diets and the food was delicious. No loud music and despite the restaurant being full, we were able to chat easily. We felt we got good value as the food was delicious.

Delicious food but perhaps slightly over priced. I paid near on £10.00 for a pigeon starter and I would be surprised if there was even 1 breast in the portion. The food itself was very nice but they should consider making portion sizes a tad bigger when they are charging what they charge.

Dear Matthew, Many thanks for your note. Delighted you enjoyed the food. The pigeon starter was £8.25 and I can assure you the gross margin on that dish was not excessive. We hope to see you again. Regards, Julie Lewis More

The only disappointment was the haddock... More

Wonderful meal. I visited with my mother who is coeliac so can't eat gluten and the staff were so knowledgeable and helpful about this, they also had a card which detailed the possible allergens in all of their dishes. We felt very well looked after and the food was fantastic, one of the best meals I have had in a... More
