Lovely renovation, but the service really lets this place down. There are a couple of attentive young front of house girls but the rest is very poor considering the pricing which is to capture being a bit special. It’s a different place when the owner is there but she may be spreading herself but thin covering all sites.

When it first opened, demand was high to get a table & this has continued. Great reuse of the bank & the interior setting/decor is very relaxing. Have been several times for a drink (food at the bar isn’t the most comfortable), feel the bar is a bit too big.

Had whole family, three generations, for Sunday breakfast. Order was wrong 3 times, fried eggs undercooked (raw on the underside), very fatty bacon.

Really hope it improves as it’s the potential to be fantastic & want it to be 5 star.

A relatively new establishment, our first visit and what gem of a discovery. On arrival we were politely and professionally welcomed, escorted to our table and offered a refreshment while we browsed the menu and soaked up the atmosphere of “on the corner”
Very tastefully decorated, to a high standard using natural woods, and fabrics with some well chosen fixtures and fittings. To say the service from the staff was first class would be an understatement, from arrival to departure some four hours later we could not praise them highly enough.
Now the food from the chefs and kitchen staff was the “icing on the plate”. A fantastic menu selection with a few items unseen else where in the city, great combinations of ingredients, textures, colours and flavours, and all presented extremely well.
I am looking forward to a quick return and try some more of the menu items,

Thank David D

We visited this bar for dinner and it was really nice. The decor is lovely and modern and the glass all around makes it very light. The bar was very busy on Saturday so I would say to book if you can even if just for drinks. We went in just for dinner but I’d say it’s more of a bar rather than restaurant feel. I had a blood orange gin which was really nice and the haggis Bon bons and fish and chips for main, it was a snack size but really quite a big portion and good value. Overall this place is really nice and quite good value.

Everything from beggining to end was amazing. Steak and minkfish were cooked to perfection. Atmosphere was buzzing for a Thursday evening!!!!! We'll be back!!!!
