We checked this bar our last night as it was just refurbished. The bar looks great - very cool and modern. Love the tree in the centre. Both my partner and I were surprised at how reasonable the drinks where - usually bars take advantage of the women and charge £8-10 for a nice gin or cocktail, it we were... More

A group of 10 friends had lunch here. We had found a special offer of £15 for 2 people. This included a starter, a main course and a glass of wine. Exceptionally good food and a really pleasant glass of wine. I had chicken liver parfait with chutney and oatcakes as a starter. Main course was chicken with haggis mash... More

£19 for two ( with Prosecco) with 5pm is an excellent deal. Nice staff, and good service. No sandwich options were offered, but fortunately we could divide them amongst us. Would recommend.

I was part of a group of 14 for a private dining experience recently. Great food, wine and service; great atmosphere; and warm, friendly and attentive service. Difficult to find fault - a good time had by all!

Visited here on a deal and while the food was okay there seems to be a breakdown in communication with the staff. We had to ask for our drinks which we could see sitting on the bar! It was a good 20 minutes before we received our starters and again for the main, it was not busy which might have... More

My wife and booked this a few weeks back, in fact it was to be her second visit in recent months. The first time she went she was bitterly disappointed, we'd had some lovely meals here in the past. However she was willing to give the place a second chance, it could well have been one of those nights. Anyway... More

Visited for lunch on a Sunday with an itison voucher. Upon arrival the person (who i'm assuming was the manager as she was in different clothing to the rest of the staff) said she could not find our booking but just by glancing down at the booking sheet I noticed ours right away as it was written in red. She... More

I was here with work friends recently, we had booked the set menu and can't say it was great. They had ran out of scallops at 1915 with no alternative available, so ended up with the soup which was ok but can't say it was anything more than it was a standard tomato soup. As a main I ordered the... More
