The Raven has a great atmosphere with a great selection of beers. The menu is so good it's actually hard to choose from. That's why I chose the sliders option. 3 for £10 on burgers (and the portion was generous). Food tasted great, complements to...More

Haggis bonbons were fantastic and we really enjoyed them. Burgers were decent but we preferred the old chip recipe. Our server, Chris, was polite and attentive throughout our stay. Recommending drinks and checking to make sure everything was okay.

This place is big enough for large group of people. I don't know what you mean by function suite. It's a restaurant with great service and great food. It looks like it can hold up to 100 diners at once... go and enjoy
