“Great service and very tasty food, perfect for a large party.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

Great selection of flavours in the food and lovely service.

The staff and service was prompt without rushing us in any way and our whole evening was extremely well organised both before and during. Our party of 17 were very comfortable in our private room and we were all very glad to have chosen Stac Polly for our night out. The food was a nice blend of traditional Scottish flavours; akin to good quality country kitchen dining rather than gourmet but worth the price. The portion sizes did vary a little (steak option was much larger than the venison) but the food was well cooked and we would recommend it again.

Great selection of wine for those who wanted it and Scottish beer and whisky for those who didn’t; catering to all tastes really. The perfect choice for a medium/large group or a smaller party looking for somewhere with rather plush Scottish surroundings which is still relaxed and tasty.

“Disappointed and disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

After reading good reviews for Stac Polly, we decided to visit on a sunday night at 8 for dinner. When we arrived we were the only people there, not normally a good omen, although in the 90 minutes we were there, one other table arrived. The menu looked good so I had the haggis, filo pastry and plum sauce starter and my wife had the scallops. My dish was far too sweet and unfortunately the scallops lacked any real flavouring. For the main I ordered Aberdeen Angus ribeye steak (rare) and my wife the venison. My steak was medium -well done so I when asked I was offered a replacement which was properly cooked, unfortunately because they had obviously put my wifes meal somewhere to keep it warm it had now dried up.
Needless to say we did not opt for dessert.
At these prices you would expect better quality fayre and cooking skills or perhaps the real chef had been on holiday???

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

The restaurant is set in a very pleasant part of the city and the restaurant itself is tastefully decorated with a strong Scottish theme.
The food was ok and the service was very good however it was a little pricey.

“lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

Organised at retirement meal at this resturant
Very helpful in the run up to the meal.
Accepted our booking of 13 with no deposit required,selected our own menu from a selection of choices,and the result was a fantastic meal
We were sat in a private room which was very nice
2 course menu starter and Main £28 for our party of 13 each
The food was very good best I have had for some time
The wine however was expensive .A charge of £18.95 for a bottle of house wine then the prices just went up and up!! such a shame they have to charge so much
Would recommend this restaurant especially for a special occassion
