I've been a few times, the restaurant is popular but I found the portions to be small and overly expensive, The upstairs bar is sporty like but didn't serve draught beer to my taste therefore I give it a miss.

The chef even came out to speak to us after complimenting his food which was... More

Despite being seated across from the bar, we were served one drink in an hour and had to ask for some more drinks ourselves when our main course arrived. Main issue concerned Kids from several...

The flavours from the dishes in this restaurant never cease to satisfy my senses. We visited as a couple over the years but never brought the kids because as much as the food was superb, it came at a price too high for us to bring three fussy kids. We came back as a couple for my birthday in March... More

Went for lunch on a Friday. Attentive service from the moment we arrived. The menu is excellent with something for everyone. We had haggis nachos which were lovely and plentiful and deep fried mushrooms with dip again beautifully cooked. Mains were lambs liver which I thoroughly enjoyed and my wife's finnan haddock mornay was to die for. Super lunch and... More
