I highly recommend this tavern both for the atmosphere and the food. Loved the haggis and my lamb cutlets were perfection! If I were a local I'd eat here all the time!

We enjoyed the hamburger, soup and onion rings and finished it off with great toffee pudding. Tends to be busy and we were lucky to get a seat straight away.

Restaurant is aesthetically pleasing from outside, gives the impression of a nice wine/tapas bar. Decor is fine inside, tables were set out rather oddly though, they were 4 seater tables set length ways so it felt like we were sat on opposite sides of the room.

The Tavern has a nice atmosphere, is clean, neat and well laid out. Service was friendly, quick and efficient. The menu is quite varied, and the food we had was good, but not spectacular. Compared with the very closely situated Grog and Gruel or Crofters, it was much quieter and less cramped. Worth a visit for informal dining.

Run by 3 very young (I'm kinda old!!) but extremely professional staff who are a credit to the restaurant. Service was excellent, despite it being pretty busy, the staff were polite and courteous. Food was very, very good. Overall a very nice place to eat for a reasonable cost.

Popped in on a busy Saturday night with no reservation. Offered a seat at the bar and only waited 10 minutes for a table. Food lovely as usual and service efficient and friendly.

Visited here upon recommendation. Food ok although served chicken supreme, whilst advertised as a stuffed chicken breast, came as a quarter of a chicken (unstuffed) and smothered with a strange sauce. Pointed this out and got an apology with a replacement meal foc. Shame couldn't eat it as put off by the dry inedible chicken. Wouldn't go afain
