I went with friends to celebrate my birthday in December. We chose the Festive Menu and we were certainly not disappointed. Was excellent value for money and the meals were all delicious. Also the food was at the correct temperature. Staff were all very friendly and professional. Ally was especially efficient. Would thoroughly recommend.

Having visited today I've got to say that the food was first class. My wife, daughter and myself enjoyed our starters and main courses very much. The quality and quantity of the portions was excellent. Dougie and his staff provided really good customer service. We will definitely be back. A memorable experience and one we will enjoy again. Thoroughly recommend.... More

I read the managers comments about there not being football fans in on a Saturday . The reason for that is most go elsewhere for a pre match drinks now as the wait to get served was appalling .

Thank you for your comments but I think you have misunderstood a previous response Due to Livingstons position in the league we do not have as many football fans coming as in previous years However there are some days, like Saturday past where we were extremely busy with fans and all were were quickly and efficiently I can only assume...

Visited as a family and received poor service. The staff were short about the place and when we did order the staff member was dry. The meals arrived almost 15 mins apart for the full party, even although we ordered them at the same time. The food was warm, but not hot and it was ok. Its a shame as... More

Recently I visited this restaurant and I was embarrassed I even suggested this place. Me and my 82 gran met with my friend and her child with autism. There was a light display which immediately attracted the kid because of all it's different colours. As the kid went into the display the women asked me to remove him from there,... More

As we explained in your other correspondence, we have a duty of care to our guests and especially the younger ones. When a parent continues to allow a child to do something that may put them at risk then we have no option other than to intervene and stop the behaviour. I could understand if the display was not cordoned... More

Went as a family. Food was nice, does exactly what it says on the tin. Staff were nice. Menu's confusing, ended up with bigger meals than wanted but it was my first visit. Would go again

Although I cannot complain about the quality and pricing of the food the lack of customer service was very evident. My partner and I ordered a meal about 8:30 which arrived in reasonable time, however when my partner went to the counter to order a drink she waited nearly 10 minutes at a completely unattended bar and eventually gave up....
